Sorry, Charlie! Sarah Michelle Gellar Says Her Princess Charlotte Was Here First

06/25/2015 at 11:20 AM ET

When you hear the name “Charlotte,” sweet images of Prince William and Princess Kate‘s newest addition may come to mind, but Sarah Michelle Gellar isn’t about to let the new royal baby steal her princess’s spotlight.

In a cute Instagram post on Wednesday, the actress, 38, gave a sneak peek of her 5-year-old daughter‘s outfit for school — and it’s fit for a princess!

And Charlotte Grace shares more than just a name with Princess Charlotte.

The pair both have princes for fathers: Prince William and Freddie Prinze, Jr.!

And let’s not forget when Gellar slipped on Cinderella’s iconic blue gown for a royal rap battle against Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle.

They also both have brothers — Princess Charlotte has big bro Prince George to watch over her, while Charlotte Grace plays big sis to 2-year-old brother Rocky James.

Their moms and dads are longtime loves as well. Gellar and Prinze, Jr. have been married for more than a decade. The duo began dating after meeting on the set of 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer. Will and Kate are college sweethearts, and met in 2001 when they were students at the Universtiy of St. Andrews.

These two famous Charlottes could rule the playground together!

What about when your daughter is Charlotte Elizabeth?!?!? My 3 year old definitely came first, couldn’t believe my luck when they announced the name…

Kate on

Who cares! No name is exclusive to just one couple. I’d love to name a baby. I just keep having miscarriages. This seems so insignificant to someone who struggles with infertility.

Seriously Sarah? Do you need attention this bad.

This seems a bit passive aggressive and petty. Kate, wishing you the best on your journey.

This is so silly!! And how many Charlottes, probably even Charlotte Graces, were here first than Sarah´s?:)
But I doubt thee were many Charlotte Elizabeth Dianas before the new princess:)

And Kate, I hope everything goes better for you…

I have been following Sarah Michelle Geller and Freddie Prinze Jr since their beginning. Do not be jealous she is boosting about their children. She is just a very proud Mama. If the headline is too much for you to handle stop reading them. Everyone is entitled to share their happy news.

This has to be one to the dumbest articles ever written. So I have a cousin who is 18 years old named Charlotte, does people magazine want to write an article about her. Give me a break.

Mmmm… Whatever Sarah.

Guess she goes by Sarah Michelle so no one else has her name?? Seriously, if she wanted to have an original name, she should have made one up. What is so unusual about Charlotte??

@EVERYONE WHO COMMENTED HERE…Lighten the f up. Geez, it’s just a silly joke. @Kate – I wish you the best. Keep in mind that adoption is a wonderful option 🙂

It is a JOKE, people! What the “H” happened to everyone’s sense of humor?? Peop;e don’t need to take a light-hearted, funny little thing she did with,and for, her daughter, as some terribly self obsessed load of BS. Why on earth do people over-react to something a innocuous as this and make it into more than it is? SMG is hardly known as an over-the-top self-centered loser, so why act as if she suddenly became one?

What the heck are you women talking about??? All she said was it was her daughters school outfit!!! If you actually went to her Instagram page you all would’ve seen it!!!

初めての購入で散々悩んだあげくこちらで購入しました。商品にはとても満足しています。発送も迅速でしたし、梱包も手書きの手紙が同封してあったり、商品梱包してあるパッキンをとめてるセロハンテープもはがしやすい様に工夫してあったりと、細かい気配りがとても良いと思いました。良い所と取引できてよかったです。
