The user behind the Catherine Mountbatten Windsor fan account, which has 221,000 followers on Instagram, wrote: ‘I am almost sure that this is little Catherine as she really resembles her a lot. How cute is this!’

Others were swayed by the youngster’s resemblance to three-year-old Princess Charlotte. 

A photo of Kate in Jordan aged four with her father Michael and younger sister Pippa that was previously shared by the Middleton family shows her with sunkissed brown shoulder-length hair. 

An earlier snap of her on a family holiday to the Lake District shows her scrambling up a rock face sporting cute brown pigtails.  

Speculation: The image shared by a fan has been liked thousands of times on Instagram 

Royal fans are convinced the unidentified  snap shows the future Duchess as a child – and many say she looked just like her daughter, Princess Charlotte, does now 

The now mother of three, seen in Sweden in January, lived in Jordan with her family for a short stint as a child 

The Jordan photo has been back in the spotlight this week, as Kate’s husband Prince William made a visit to the exact same spot where his now wife played as a little girl.

The Duke of Cambridge is part way through an historic royal tour of Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian territories. 

On Monday he visited the ruins of a Roman settlement at Jerash where Kate was photographed with her father Michael and sister Pippa as a child.

The Prince had told reporters his wife, who is on maternity leave after giving birth to the couple’s third child, Prince Louis, in April, was saddened to be missing out on the trip, as she had ‘really loved’ living in Jordan as a child.

Some Kate fans said the little girl in the picture resembles the Duchess’ three-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, seen here with her mother at Harry and Meghan’s wedding last month 

Fans were charmed by the photograph, having been persuaded of the girl’s identity by her resemblance to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s daughter, Charlotte

Organisers of the Prince’s visit had placed a large picture of the Duchess of Cambridge as a child pictured with her father and younger sister some 30 years previously.

William, 36, was walking with Jordan’s Crown Prince Hussein, 23, when he spotted the large photo, a copy of which was released to the public just before the Cambridges married in 2011.

The second in line to the throne made a joke about his father-in-law, telling the Crown Prince: ‘Michael’s looking very smart in his flip-flops.’

He posed for a picture at the same spot, telling photographers: ‘We’ll have to bring the kids next time.’
