Early Breakfast with Lilah Parsons 4am - 6:30am
They may not break into song and dance numbers at the drop of a hat, but members of the world's royal families definitely have links to the magical world of Disney. Here's our pick of Disney Princes and Princesses and their real-life royal doppelgängers...
Both Princess Beatrice of York (the Queen's granddaughter) and Ariel from 'The Little Mermaid' are blessed with beautiful almond-shaped eyes and red hair - although Ariel's is a little more fire extinguisher red than ginger. Plus, they both like spending time in water…sure, Princess B is sailing in a yacht over the water but hey, it's pretty similar.
Who doesn't love Kate Middleton? And who doesn't love Belle in 'Beauty and the Beast'. Forget Emma Watson playing the Disney heroine in a new live action movie, we'd have the gorgeous Duchess any day.
Look at that cheeky chappie smile! We all know Prince Harry loves the outdoors and has served in the military, but we're not sure he could beat Hercules in the hero stakes. We've never seen the Prince without his shirt, but we're guessing he's Hercules pre-training as opposed to the muscular guy we see at the end of the film!
How much does Princess Mette-Marit of Norway look like Queen Elsa from 'Frozen' in this picture?! We don't know whether it's the blue dress, the icy-blonde hair or the smile, but it's certainly going to blow the minds of kids everywhere!
We aren't the first people to point out the similarities between Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco and Scottish heroine Merida from Disney's 'Brave'. Plus this real-life princess has just as much courage and gusto as her cartoon counterpart - she's officially the first wife of a Moroccan ruler to earn her own royal title. Nice work.
Prince William may be second in line to the throne, but he's still a family man and an animal lover at heart. Turns out he has a lot more in common with Roger Radcliffe - the long-suffering owner of Pongo and victim of Cruella De Vil - than we first thought!
We know what you're thinking...Prince Carl Philip, Duke of Värmland, is rather dashing to say the least. Sadly, he's married to an equally gorgeous Princess, but that doesn't mean we can't look! Dashing, fun-loving and quick to smile, that sounds like Flynn Rider from 'Tangled', don't you think?
This is the very beautiful Saudi Princess Ameera and she bears a striking resemblance to the equally lovely, but rather less three dimensional, Princess Jasmine. Like Jasmine, Princess Ameera fights for causes she believes in, including fighting for women's rights.
Both ladies share brains and beauty, with the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg boasting a master's degree in German philology. Unlike Aurora, Grand Duchess Stéphanie doesn't have to sleep for long - she's already found her true love and got married in 2012. Some ladies have all the luck!
Princess Charlene certainly shares Cinderella's grace, having swum on the South African Olympic team. She's also known for her incredible, graceful and elegant fashion sense - we reckon she'd love Cinders' blue gown.
