Now, everyone knows it's not nice to pit babies against one another according to their overall cuteness — but I think it's fair to say that if you were to play such a game, Princess Charlotte (and her rosy-cheeked, knee-sock-loving big brother Prince George) would emerge as the winner each and every time.
