I think I have just updated my goals in life. To be still kicking my rock when George and Charlotte's children are born to see the comparisons made then. It follows right after being able to be a pain in my children's butts.

Creepy, even by Daily Mail standards. I really can't believe they haven't pulled out baby Diana's photos and put them side by side, comparing them pixel by pixel or do they leave that for People?

Personally, I would call Catherine's eyes green instead of hazel. It is possible for a green-eyed parent and a blue-eyed parent to have a brown-eyed child. Ten years ago, geneticists would have nixed the idea. But more recent research shows that eye color is determined by a lot more factors (and more chromosomes!), than their previous simplistic Mendelian model.

Another example in the BRF of eye oddity is the Yorks. Andrew and Sarah both have blue eyes, but Beatrice has heterochromia. Her right eye is blue and her left eye is green/hazel.

This must be some kind of novelty, as in other ancient times, it would have looked suspicious. I'vel always learned that a child, whose parents have blue/green eyes ,would inherit dark/brown eyes only in case granparents had dakr eyes... Afaik, nor Charles and Diana, neither Michael and Carole have brown eyes... It's still fascinating

I'd prefer to wait a few more months to decide because we don't know whose nose she inherited. But overall she reminds Carole a bit more than anyone.
Her eye color can still change become hazel too. I won't be surprised if she ends up with green/blue or brown/blue eyes.

Yeah why do people think Mike and Pippa have eyes that aren't brown?

it is outdated and very simplified theory
most recent researches show that there are two groups of genes: one group allows to inherit brown color, anather group define coloring power.
As a result people with such eyes color

have children with such eyes color

Skippyboo: I don't know if you are refering to my post, if so, could you please quote me? Otherwise, I always end up wondering whether or not you wanted to reply to me.. I'lve always believed (judging from pics etc) they too had blue eyes.... Maybe they have a dark blue shade?


Are you sure? They look blue/grey to me!

But your are right about Pippa: hazel, apparently

When I look at the latest photos of Princess Charlotte, I see the Queen.

From my first glance at Charlotte's picture, I saw the Queen as well! Isn't it strange how perceptions differ? I didn't see even a bit of Carole and was surprised when she was mentioned. I will have to look for some younger pictures of Carole (there aren't many about) and take another look.

I didn't a young Princess Elizabeth in the pictures. Elizabeth was a chubby curly head baby. William & Catherine is mixed in there.

Michael has always had brown eyes, for as long as I've been following the Middletons, at least.

You can see a better view of his face in this picture.

Sorry, but that is a very small pic! In the high-quality ones I've seen, as the photo I posted it is overt that he has blue eyes!!! Just no the light clear blue hue like William for example, but a more darker shade... Okay, I'm veering off topic so this would be my last post on the matter. Anyone is free to believe what they want.

Hmm... hard to say! Looks like he has a bit hazel/grayish?

Pippa has brown:

Hmm, the Middleton family would certainly provide a nice study in eye colour genetics!

I think he has a dark blue shade and in some pics the light makes them look darker,but in other it is very obvious he has no brown eyes. Pippa has certainly hazel/brown eyes, I changed my mind about her eye color, as I was sure she had light eyes as well

The picture of Michael looks basically as I saw in most of the pictures. They seem like a mix. Kate's seem like a greener version of his color-changing eyes. Yeah, Pippa definitley has brown (although rather light) eyes. Very interesting.

Perhaps we can ask the mods to make a poll about that

Lovely new photos of the babies!

The new photos released of the young prince and princess are wonderful. You can see the Queen in the young princess. You can also see the influence of the male royals on the prince. I was astounded though at how thin Lady Kate was in the photos. Since the camera adds 10 pounds I know that she is very underweight. Perhaps the royals should allow her to eat now and then! Of course the Christmas season is upon us so she will have ample opportunities to snack.
