And you thought Beatrice looked like her dear old dad! It turns out the 22-year-old daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson bears an uncanny resemblance to her great-great-great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria – no wonder she was cast as a lady-in-waiting in the 2009 production of The Young Victoria.
What’s the expression? Yes, Prince Charles is a dead ringer for Edward VII, the future king of England’s great-great-grandfather, who owned the title of Prince of Wales before ascending the throne in 1901.
Being 37th in line to the throne, the odds that Freddie Windsor will get his crowning moment are about as slim as those faced by his ancestor Louis Frederick, Prince of Wales. His great-grandfather five times over died at the young age of 44 with none of his political ambitions ever fulfilled.
A cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and Freddie’s dad, Prince Michael of Kent has the bearing – right down to the full beard! – of his granddad, King George V, who ruled the United Kingdom through the First World War until his death in 1936.
Queen Elizabeth II must have been a favorite of her granny, Queen Mary. The British monarch bears a remarkable likeness to the Queen consort, who saw both her beloved son King George VI and granddaughter Elizabeth ascend the throne before her death in 1953.
