'Same lips, same smile': Fans are convinced that Prince George resembles his late grandmother Princess Diana quite a bit
Royal family fans on social media wished the little royal well on his birthday but couldn't help getting sad thinking that Diana could never meet her grandchildren.
Prince George is growing up quite fast! The young Prince celebrated his fifth birthday on Sunday (July 22) and even though his late grandmother Princess Diana was not present there, fans did not forget her on his big day. An Instagram account named ' Love Princess Diana' shared a side by side picture of Prince George and Princess Diana and pointed out the similarities between the two members of the royal family. Happy 5th Birthday to little Prince!❤️Grandmother would be proud of you!" read the caption of the picture which showed Prince George and Diana beaming with happiness. Many of the royal family fans could not help but react to the picture. People commented on how they thought George resembled his grandmother.
"AWE SAME LOVING SMILE", wrote one, while another added, "Happy birthday! I think it's just the same lips and the same smile as Diana." Others noted that the picture captured the George and Diana in the perfect shot as the comment read, "This is just spot on!!! Perfect side by side picture of the two! Wow!!" Meanwhile, there were many others who mourned her death. The late princess died nearly 20 years ago on August 31, 1997.
She died as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris, France. While many blamed the paparazzi for the death, an investigation found that her driver, Henry Paul lost control of the vehicle which led to the crash. Even after decades, her memory is still cherished.
People felt emotional when they realized that Diana never met her grandson or her daughters-in-law for that matter. "Pictures of her next to the grandchildren she’ll never know just break my heart.....she was such a good mom....she would have loved those 3 little ones..." wrote one. Another added, "Princess Diana would have been soooo proud of her grandchildren and loved them immensely."
Another had a message for Prince George which read, "You would be the apple of your grandmother's eye had she still been alive. Just know that you have a very special angel watching over and your family every minute of every day. Happy birthday sweet boy!"
There were others who thought that even though Princess Diana was not next to her kids or grandson, she will always be looking after them. "I'm sure she's looking down and marveling at what a handsome little boy he is, and knowing that he will grow up to be a handsome, loving and caring Prince!" read the comment. This comes after Kensington Palace shared a picture of Prince George to thank people for their wishes. "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George to mark his fifth birthday – thank you, everyone, for your lovely messages," read the message along with a picture that was taken after Prince Louis' christening.
