    The photo accompanying Prince Williams’ 31st birthday announcement shows again how much William and cousin Peter Phillips look alike. Even though they are first cousins so one would expect some familial resemblance ,it’s a ‘camera/ light/and angle thing’ I’m sure. Peter and William look more alike than William and Harry. Lucky Peter has kept a lot more of his hair despite the receding at the front. The cousins seem to have a great relationship. Peter seems so easygoing and great with his children. He and Autumn are like newlyweds. Poor William lives under so much more pressure,I hope he found some private happy birthday time.
