Prince George Looks So Grown Up (and So Much Like Dad William) at Trooping the Colour

With each passing day, Prince George is starting to look more and more like his father, Prince William. Royal admirers noticed the uncanny resemblance at Prince Philip’s memorial service a couple of months ago, where the father-son duo wore matching blue suits. And now, George’s latest appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony is making us see double (again).

Today, the 8-year-old prince appeared alongside his two younger siblings, Prince Louis (4) and Princess Charlotte (7), on a horse-drawn carriage ride in the Trooping of Colour parade. Shortly after, they were joined by other members of the royal family on the Buckingham Palace balcony.

In the photo below, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can be seen with their three children as they eagerly watched the RAF flypast fly over the balcony. George looked like Prince William's mini-me in a navy-blue suit with a white buttoned-up shirt and a polka-dot tie.

At the event, Charlotte rocked a sky blue dress with sheer sleeves and Louis sported a mini sailor suit worn by none other than William himself. At the age of two, the duke wore the same outfit to a Trooping in 1985. He was joined by Princess Diana, Prince Charles and Prince Harry (who was a toddler at the time).

Meanwhile, Middleton looked absolutely stunning in her white blazer dress (designed by Alexander McQueen). She decided to re-wear the ensemble for the queen’s Platinum Jubilee—and honored the late Princess of Wales in the process. The royal donned a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings, which were previously worn by Diana herself.

Those royal family genes sure are strong.
