Prince Charles Posts Throwback Photo with His Parents (& He Looks Like a Mini-Me of Prince Philip)

Prince Charles is celebrating hump day by taking a trip down memory lane.

On Wednesday, the Prince of Wales shared a throwback photo on the Clarence House Instagram account, which he shares with his wife Camilla Parker Bowles. The photograph, which was taken 70 years ago, features a young Charles playing in the grass with Princess Anne while his parents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, sit on a blanket nearby. Per the post’s caption, the image was taken in July of 1951 in the Clarence House garden.

And although the photo is in black-and-white, it’s still very clear that Charles takes after his father, even right down to the identical side-slicked hair and mirroring posture. And we weren’t the only ones who thought so. One follower commented on the post, “Charles really grew up to be a mini version of his dad,” while another was more focused on Philip’s summer ensemble, writing, “There’s nothing like a warm summer day in a suit...”

If you didn’t know, Clarence House is the official London residence of Charles and Parker Bowles. According to the royal family website, the property was designed by architect John Nas and built between 1825 and 1827 for King William IV (aka the Duke of Clarence).

The queen and her husband lived in the home for three years—from 1949 and 1952—before the Queen Mother took over the estate and made it home for the following 50. It wasn’t until the early 2000s that Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall moved in.

We love a good old throwback, especially one featuring Prince Philip.
