When we look at a child, we automatically try to figure out if he or she looks more like Mom or Dad.

Sometimes, the answer is crystal clear! Just check out what Reese Witherspoon’s daughter looks like, and don’t forget Bette Midler’s daughter! Both look exactly like their gorgeous, famous mothers.

But sometimes, it’s the grandparents who are the most influential in terms of genetics. Take young Pauline Ducruet, for instance: She is the granddaughter of Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco!

Pauline is 23 years old and a budding designer. She’s just like any young woman coming into the world — but she just happens to be a royal! Her mother is Princess Stephanie of Monaco, and she is the niece of the current reigning monarch, Prince Albert II.

Now scroll down to see pictures of the beautiful young lady, and decide for yourself if she looks like her grandmother Grace Kelly!

Grace Kelly was known for her poise and beauty, but also for living the fantasy so many girls dream about: She married a prince! After her wedding to Prince Rainier III, she had three children: Albert (the current monarch), Stephanie, and Caroline.

Her son may have inherited the throne, but his niece Pauline — daughter of Stephanie — is stealing the spotlight!

Born Pauline Grace Maguy Ducruet, the 23-year-old seems to have a very close resemblance to her late grandmother.

She grew up in Monaco, but moved to New York City to become a designer.

The young royal travels much of the time, and often documents her time abroad on Instagram.

As a budding designer, it’s obvious who her style inspirations are: the women in her family!

Pauline never met her famous grandmother, but she is the spitting image of her.

We can’t wait to see all the great things Pauline will accomplish!
