One-year-olds don’t have a fashion statement. Or do they? To capture the attention of royalty, you need to look like one yourself, and this toddler sure did! While most are spotted in diapers, pacifiers, or a cutesy outfit, One-year-old Jalayne Sutherland caught Buckingham Palace’s attention with her fancy dress costume. The little girl donned an adorable double-breasted overcoat with a matching hat, a white wig, and pearls around her neck, emulating her royal highness to the T. Katelyn Sutherland, mom of the cute mini-queen, photographed her daughter standing alongside her family corgis.

This outfit made for Halloween got a lot of praise from passersby and friends, but the best response was from the Queen herself! New York Times shared Katlyn’s comments, “While walking around on Halloween we received many, many compliments but my favorite reactions were when people bowed to her or did the royal wave and said, ‘Your Majesty!’

The letter, from the Queen’s lady in waiting for the Hon Marry Morrison, read, “The Queen wishes me to write and thank you for your letter , and for the photograph you thoughtfully enclosed.
