Fans rushed to compliment Lily on her stunning picture, with one telling her: “You've definitely followed in your mom's footsteps. Very pretty.” A second follower said: “I think that Lily is taking wings, beautiful as the mother!!!” A third wrote: “You look so much like your mother,” and another said, “Take after Mum.”

Kate recently talked about Lily leaving home now she’s an adult, revealing to The Mirror: “It’s incredibly exciting and scary. But then, I quite like being scared. I’ve lived under a structure of school terms for a long time. Now I have this open landscape which I haven’t had since I was 22. Separating is really hard, but it’s really important.”

Lily celebrated her 18th birthday in February and her mum uploaded a throwback photo on Instagram, showing Lily as a little toddler wearing her mother's shoes. Alongside the image, Kate shared a sweet message for her only child. "18 and now you're in the big girl shoes for real," she wrote. "I love you so much @lily_beckinsale. Nothing has been better in my life than being your mama. Happy happy happy birthday to my favourite, funniest best person in the world. PS we will obviously get you better shoes, those are hideous I don't know what I was thinking."
