Adorable Prince George bears a striking resemblance to Princess Diana
Although Princess Diana does not have that many pictures of her childhood like Prince George, some of her old pictures bear an uncanny resemblance to her grandson
Prince George could very well be the most famous baby in the world, if not just the whole of Britain. With multiple notable people in his family, such as Queen Elizabeth as a doting great-grandmother and a fashionable aunt in the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, the young prince has a lot of role models to look up to.
Being an offspring of Prince William and Kate Middleton, two of the most good-looking royals in the family, Prince George gets to gain a lot with regards to his cute looks. However, there is another royal family member that George resembles closely, and that's his late grandmother Princess Diana.
The legacy of Diana, who passed away almost two decades ago in 1997, is kept alive by her two doting sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. Both sons speak highly of their mother wherever they go, and even fans remember the "people's princess" from time to time.
However, one of the more important and significant ways in which her legacy in the world lives on is through her grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, who will always be known to carry a part of her identity with them throughout their lives.
Some of Diana's childhood pictures bear an uncanny resemblance to her grandson, the firstborn of the Duchess of Cambridge. If one takes a closer and critical look at some of Diana's old pictures, both Diana and George seem to have the same shape of the eye, among other traits. And although George might not be a splitting image of his late grandmother, they both seem to have really deep-set eyes.
However, Prince George also gets a lot of his traits from his mother's side of the family, but it is still somehow sweet to know that the four-year-old bears at least somewhat resemblance to Diana.
Looking carefully at some more of Prince Charles' ex-wife, Diana and George also seem to have a similar complexion and hair color, or at least that's what the numerous pictures of the young prince and his grandmother's old pictures suggest.
However, Prince George looking like his grandmother would only make sense if Prince William, her son, looked like her, something which William does not think is true. In an interview, the Duke of Cambridge reportedly said, "I think my mum was better looking," to a lady who suggested that he looked a lot like his late mom.
It is tragic enough that Princess Diana left the world even before she could meet either of her daughters-in-law, but according to Prince William, Diana would have absolutely loved being a grandmother if she was still alive.
Prince William said in an interview in the 2017 HBO documentary, 'Diana, Our Mother', that he and Kate often talk about "Granny Diana" with their kids, and that he believes that Diana would have "loved the children to bits" but have been an"absolute nightmare" of a grandmother.
"She'd come and go and she'd come in probably at bath time, cause an amazing...scene bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place, then leave," Prince William said in the documentary.
And while the parents wish that their kids had their grandmother to spend time with them and be around them, Kate seems to be doing quite a stellar job when it comes to raising her kids and spending time with them while managing her royal duties on the side.
Kate, who is currently on maternity leave till the end of autumn after giving birth to one-month-old Prince Louis, recently took her older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, on a fun and casual family outing to the Houghton Horse Trials in Norfolk which took place on Sunday.
The family set out for a day full of fun, and the children played out their time in Norfolk like any other normal family, with eating ice-creams and George even getting to ride in one of the ambulance vehicles.
"We were sitting on the bench having something to eat and I noticed this beautiful woman in a blue dress who had two kids with her and I suddenly realized who it was," said onlooker Jack Schmollmann to the Daily Mail.
"I think other people noticed them but not everybody because they did their best to blend in and were just going about their daily lives," revealed the 32-year-old, who was the first one to snap pictures of the royal family members.
All speculations aside, Prince George is still too young to be showing definitive similarities to any of his family members now, and it would still take some time before we can know for sure who the young royal takes after once he grows up into a strong, young man.
