Sorry, but I disagree. The ones which resembled Queen Mary were her sons David, Henry and Bertie. And now we have HM who becomes more and more like her in her facial structures. Charles to me looks like a odd version of Lord Mountbatten (who was so handsome ) with some structures of the Bowes Lyons, he also has some greek features IMO. Prince Andrew has got a lot from Lord Mountbatten too and sometimes I see resemblences between Princess Anne and her grandmother Princess Alice, but mainly Anne when she was young looked a bit like Princess Mary, the Queens aunt.

Here's a picture of Queen Mary:

Btw Queen Mary watched Charles when he was new born and then looked through all the photo albums of the family to find out which one of his ancestors this boy resembled. Her result was, that in her opinion, little Charles looked like Prince Albert, Queen Victorias husband. I think, she was wrong.

I found one that shows the look about the eyes that I think has been passed on to Charles and Harry:

You don't think the "bug eye" look came from King George III? I looked on Getty Images and came across King George III side profile and he had that look which Queen Victoria inherited and her daughter The Duchess of Teck also inherited.

None of Queen Victoria's daughters was a Duchess of Teck. Queen Marys mother Mary Adelaide of Teck/Cambridge was a cousin of Queen Victoria. Here are picture of Mary Adelaide who was nicknamed "fat Mary":

I think she indeed had resemblences to Victoria, but I never found that Queen Mary resembled her mother very much. She had more from her father Francis Duke of Teck, who was very handsome IMO:

It's quite a different look about the eyes that I see passing from Queen Mary to Charles and Harry. I think they all had/have quite close-set, relatively small and deeply set blue eyes with a sort of mid-distance stare and slight frown at times. The bug-eyed look is quite a different thing.

The Duchess of Teck was not Queen Victoria's daughter, but her first cousin, once removed. Mary's mother, Princess Mary Adelaide, Duchess of Teck, was Queen Victoria's first cousin. Mary Adelaide and Victoria shared a common grandfather: George III.

ETA Our latest posts crossed, Dierna23. Thanks for posting those pics. I think perhaps Queen Mary inherited her looks from her father's side.

You're most welcome, Roslyn. With Harry I agree with you. I see very much Prince Philip in him, but there's still something else around his eyes, I see absolutely nothing from the Spencers in Harry beside the hair colour, but Queen Mary also had red hair.

I found a few days ago a rare picture/painting of Queen Marys maternal grandmother Claudine Rhédey de Kis-Rhéde and I thought Queen Mary resembled her a bit:

I've always thought that Harry resembled Charles far more than William does. Both have the close set eyes, and both have QEII's thin lipped mouth.

Everyone's a mixture of their mother's and their father's families. I will say that the last picture I saw of Prince Edward's daughter Louise reminded me a lot of pictures I saw of the Queen as a small child and of Princess Anne and, further back, of Princess Mary and Queen Mary. They all have the curly blonde hair and similar features. Edward looks quite a bit like his mother, which is where it comes from. I'm sure Louise also looks like her mother, but she seems to have a strong resemblance to her dad's family.

I agree with everything you wrote about Lady Louise, she really has the Windsor-Look. There is a type of girl/woman in this family which has similar features, to those you listed I would pick Zara Philips and Lady Gabriella Windsor as well. It is often the case, that people resemble their grandparents much more than their parents.

I think that James looks more like Sophie's side of the family.

Totally agree. And I see a lot of resemblance of Queen Elizabeth II to Queen Mary especially in the eyes.

To me William and Harry have nothing from Queen Mary! The close together eyes came from the Bowes-Lyons I suppose as well from the Battenbergs.

Thank you very much for the article, Emeralds and Opals!

Chidren are a reflection of their parents and relatives.
This statement is time-proved.

I've always thought the Princess's of York had an uncanny resemblance to the Queen Mother and Queen Victoria but it was interesting to see Edwards resemblance to his grandfather and so on. Though they take the mickey with some of them

I do agree that the Princesses of York do have similarities to their female ancestors but so do the Princes of Wales look like their male ancestors (interesting to see how much Harry is shown to resemble Charles' ancestors isn't it?)

I can't get over what a beautiful child Lady Louise has grown into.


The only one of those that was a "wow!" for me was Prince William and King Edward I. It's amazing to see how far back some of those familial traits go.
