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.
