At 37, Prince William isn’t exactly a dead-ringer for his 4-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte. But back in the day? Well, judging by the Duke of Cambridge’s reaction, they were basically twins.

When William and Kate Middleton visited the Khidmat Centre in Bradford on Wednesday, the pair was given a tour (and hopefully a taste) of an intricate dessert installation designed with photos of themselves at various stages of their respective lives.

One particular photo had William stymied. “Is that me?” he’s seen asking in video footage from the visit, pointing to a cupcake. “Because that looks just like Charlotte. That is incredible.”

Middleton agreed, “It looks so much like Charlotte.”

And while we cannot see the exact cupcake in question, it doesn’t take a lot of photo research to note the resemblance.

The little princess has also been compared to Queen Elizabeth as a tot. This royal gene pool is strong.
