Prince William low-key recreated one of Kate Middleton’s childhood photos, and—to no surprise—it was epic.

It all started when the prince traveled to Amman, Jordan, for a five-day royal tour of the Middle East. While there, Prince William visited the Roman ruins and posed for a picture in the same spot that Middleton did back in the ’80s.
