On April 23, 2018, the Royal Family announced that Kate Middleton had given birth to a boy, who joined four-year-old Prince George and two-year-old Princess Charlotte as the third royal baby. Kate and her husband, William, formally introduced Prince Louis Arthur Charles on April 27.
On May 2, about a week after Prince Louis’ birth, The Duchess of Cambridge snapped a couple photos of her baby boy at Princess Charlotte’s birthday party. The images were shared across the family’s social media accounts. That’s when netizens noticed one special detail about the little boy, setting the internet ablaze with their excited commentary.
The spokesperson who shared the images wrote:
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share two photographs of Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Both photographs were taken by The Duchess.
The Duchess took the photograph of Prince Louis on 26 April.
The image of Princess Charlotte with Prince Louis was captured by The Duchess on 2 May, Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.
Their Royal Highnesses would like to thank members of the public for all of the kind messages they have received following the birth of Prince Louis, and for Princess Charlotte’s third birthday.”
Immediately after the Royal Family posted the birthday party photos online, people started to comment about how much Prince Louis looks like his father.
One Twitter user named Katie shared a photo collage in which Prince Louis and Prince William look almost like the same exact baby. Prince Louis really is the spitting image of William!
