The palace recently released some sweet family photos taken by Getty royal photographer Chris Jackson in honor of Prince Charles’ 70th birthday and people could not stop gushing over how sweet they were.
One photo in particular – of the Prince of Wales holding his youngest grandchild, Prince Louis – captured hearts all over the globe.

We haven’t seen a lot of the little prince, so royal watchers went gaga over these new photos.
As they looked at the pictures, some eagle-eyed royal fans noticed a striking similarity between Prince Louis and one other famous member of the royal family: his mother, Duchess Catherine.
The adorable prince has the same brown eyes, button nose, and prominent eyebrows that his mother did when she was a baby.
Of course, this isn’t the first time royal fans have spotted some family resemblance in the youngest generation.
Princess Charlotte has been compared to several of her famous family members.
One observer found an old photo of Prince William sporting the same adorable smirk the tiny princess has become known for.

Look at this and tell me they don’t look alike 😂 (to me) Ever since she was little Charlotte has had the “Diana Smirk” which William obviously got from Diana and Charlotte got from her daddy! She is definitely daddy’s little lookalike and daddy’s little girl! 💕! ———————————————- #britishroyalfamily #princewilliam #dukeofcambridge #duchessofcambridge #katemiddleton #princegeorge #princesscharlotte #princelouis
William wasn’t the first royal to put that smile on display, though. His mother, Princess Diana, was famous for her shy smile, and other royal watchers were quick to note the resemblance between Charlotte and Diana as well.

As if that weren’t enough, some have noticed similarities between Charlotte and her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Others have noted the princess’s resemblance to the late Queen Mother.

This younger generation isn’t the only one to inherit the family traits.
Last year, Chris Jackson (the same photographer who took the royal family portraits), found an old magazine in France that stopped him in his tracks. The cover featured a photo of a young Prince Philip, but Jackson couldn’t help but notice his resemblance to another famous royal:
Do you think Prince Louis looks like his mother, Duchess Catherine? Then share it!
