She has everyone’s hearts

Although every royal family member rocks their own type of star power, no one steals the show quite like Princess Charlotte, although these photos of Prince Louis definitely give her a run for her money. From her cute hair bows to her big blue eyes to her adorable cheeks, the royal princess never fails to make a memorable appearance. While there are many royal family conspiracy theories, Princess Charlotte’s cuteness isn’t one of them.
