It looks like Blue Ivy might be ready to take her mum's throne already, as Beyoncé posted a cute picture of her daughter wearing a tiny purple crown this week.

The youngster - who turned 1 in January - was snapped in the bejewelled royal accessory, which appeared to be made to measure for her tiny head, and Beyoncé swiftly uploaded the image on her Tumblr account on Thursday (27 June), letting her fans know exactly who will be inheriting the 'Queen B' crown once she is ready to step down.

Since the superstar singer is notoriously protective over her daughter, only a small portion of Blue's face and her curly hair can be seen in the picture, making her headwear the main focus.

Coincidentally, Beyoncé got kitted out in an elaborate Queen costume earlier this year to promote her current 'Mrs Carter Show' world tour.

In the tour trailer, the award winning songstress was seen wearing a golden corset, a long royal blue cape and a gold crown tilted on the side of her head in exactly the same way that Blue Ivy's sits in this new photo.

Like mother, like daughter!

Beyoncé, 31, also uploaded a few more photos on her tumblr, including a throwback picture of her leaning lovingly towards Blue, while she sits in her her pram and reaches out to touch her mum's nose.

Another snap shows Beyoncé - who is married to rapper Jay-Z - wearing a tiny pair of pink Tom Ford heels, which look like they have been taken from Blue's shoe collection!

Despite being busy with a sold out world tour and promoting her role in the new animated film, Epic, Beyoncé is still besotted with Blue and determined to spend as much time as she can with her - proving that her hectic schedule hasn't got in the way of her mummy duties.

Earlier this month, the Destiny's Child star showed fans an intimate moment that she and Blue shared in a swimming pool, while taking a well earned break from her work.

We love the fact that Beyoncé is finally starting to give us more of a sneak peek into her life as a mother with these sweet snaps!
