Princess Charlotte is likely the world's youngest (and cutest) art collector, thanks to Prince William and Kate's friends. In honor of her christening, an unnamed "close friend" gifted Charlotte a painting by Stephen Crawson. The artist, who specializes in reproducing original movie posters, created a seven-foot-wide painting modeled after an original billboard for the 1937 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. According to Us Magazine, it is valued at $200,000. That's one way to start an art collection.
