On her 18th birthday Princess Beatrice revealed that her mother is the person who inspires her most, and that she sees herself as a "mini-mummy."
And the likeness between the flame-haired mother and daughter was clear as they attended the African Caribbean Leukemia Trust charity gala in London this week.
With both of them turning out in bright colours and matching knee-length frocks, even Beatrice and her mother's shoes were strikingly similar.
And the summery hues of their dresses were certainly reflected in their beaming smiles as the pair affectionately laughed and joked with each other throughout the evening.
The duchess, whose dress clinched in at the waist, looked as if she was showing off the results of her latest fitness regime. The 49-year-old has hired David Beckham's personal trainer to help her trim down for her milestone birthday in October.
