The term "family resemblance" exists for a reason.

A lot of us show similarities to our relatives – whether it be our parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins or other members of our blood line.

And when looking at Prince William, it is safe to say this is the case for the Royal Family too. People are convinced the Duke of Cornwall is a doppelgänger for other royals – including one of his children.

Pictures from his teenage years were posted onto Reddit, where he has long blonde locks, a shy smile and a casual checkered shirt on. While some can see his grandfather in him, others think he looks just like his mother.

One commenter said: "William looks a lot like Philip. I've always seen his mum in him but that picture of Philip is William all over."

Another wrote: "I remember when that photo of William came out. He was so cute as a teenager." And a third added: "Prince William looking just like Diana at 15."

Not only do they think William looks a lot like the late Prince Philip and Princess Diana, they also have noticed striking similarities between dad and daughter. Many think Princess Charlotte is his 'mini me'.

One commenter said: "Prince William looks so much like Diana but I somehow see so much of Charlotte too in the photo."

Another wrote: "Charlotte is her dad in girl form." And a third added: "Charlotte looks so much like William."

This isn't the only double people are convinced exists within the Royal Family – as many reeled off plenty of other examples of the family resemblance being strong.

Princess Kate and Prince William have welcomed their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, prompting many to compare them to the late Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Diana, and the Middletons.

Meanwhile, Princess Beatrice has often been compared to Queen Victoria because of both of their uniquely shaped eyes and striking lip shape.

Pictures of Prince Harry have often shown him looking a lot like his father, King Charles. This may be a bit awkward for the royal, who has stepped back from the Royal Family and doesn't appear to have the rosiest relationship with the King at the moment.
