Is it just me, or there is a strong resemblance between Crown Prince Wilhelm and Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales?

I definitely see the similarities to the PoW but when I first glanced at this photo, I was thinking Edward VIII was in the pic.

The man on the left--the Crown Prince?--definitely looks like Edward VIII. Something about the eyes and the expression.

I find it's the same with Harry. Sometimes he'll say something and the expression will be so much like Diana's.

This is interesting topic.. you can trace facial shapes back to Victoria & Albert, and that is the point when things get a bit confusing 'cause we dont have much of early Alberts pictures.
It looks like there was three distinct types of bone structures in the family.
First belongs to queen Victoria. Sharply defined, streight lines on oval to round fale.




Second belongs to queen Alexanra, and its lines are softer shaped, rounder eyes with much longer face..and different jaw line.




Third belongs to queen Mary, it is also long type of face.. only different from that of Alexandra, her brow line is clear, sharper defind.



in the next few posts I'll try to just ilustrate this bone structure travel trough time and family..up to point where Elzabeth Bowes-Lyon comes in to play.

I dunno about Edward VIII being in the category with Victoria. I think his bone structure is much more similar to Alexandra's than either Victoria or Mary. What really sticks out to me is his nose has a slight upward tilt that neither Victoria nor Mary had. Also, his eyes are not the deeply set type that Victoria and many of her descendants have. They are similar to Alexandra's. Edward VIII is really just a later, male version of Alexandra in so many ways.

I see what you mean...but Alexandra is soft
Edvard VIII slight upward tilt, woud not be possible without Victoria's sharp streight lines, nor clear facial structures of Edvard VIII, George VI and even George Duke of Kent...its her streightnes that shows here combined in different ways with Alexandras softnes
(but George VI had a lot of Queen Mary in him)

There was a picture I saw the other day of a younger Prince Phillip (maybe in his 30s/early 40s) & literally facially Prince Harry is the spitting image. I'm going to have to retrack down where that picture is because it was like seeing Harry in 10-20years time.

Harry as a child was the spitting image of Philip's father to me. William also always reminded me of Philip and the photos of Philip as a boy, teenager and young man.

I think people forget that the blonde hair of William is more likely to have come from his blond haired paternal grandfather rather than his bottle-blonded mother. I also think that people forget just how handsome Philip was as a young man and want to attribute any good - looks, actions etc that the princes do to their mother and so don't look beyond her to look for other things.

The older the princes get the more they resemble Charles and Philip to me but I have always seen more of that side of the family than Diana's anyway. The Danish genes from the dual descent from Christian IX of Denmark through Queen Alexandra and King George I of the Hellenes, with the strong Mountbatten genes as well are the ones I see most in these two.

However Andrew's girls, particularly Beatrice, have the strong Hanoverian genes - again through two lines of descent - from Edward VII and Princess Alice.

Add common lines of descent from James I of England and VI of Scotland through lots of lines, including Diana's and it becomes even easier to understand the similarities to other royals as Diana was descended through various lines from James I and VI (being a descendent of Charles I through a number of his illegitimate children) while both the Queen and Philip have a number of lines of descent back to James though his daughter Elizabeth (the mother of the Electress Sophia of Hanover).

Especially when HM was a child.
The Queen has noted several times that Princess Anne is a copy of her father

Great job, Uncas! They definitely all share a strong resemblance, the eyes in particular, through Queen Alexandra! I actually think those four are the most interesting and beautiful faces within the Windsor family of the past 100 years.

The strong resemblances within the Windsor family are absolutely fascinating (yes, they are a family of course, but it's quite rare that you resemble a great-uncle or great-grandmother for example so much, IMO). Lady Gabriella Windsor looks very much like her aunt Alexandra but as well like her great-aunt Mary, Viscountess Lascelles and also a bit like Queen Alexandra. Young Princess Anne, Zara Phillips and Lady Louise resemble each other, too (I think they're all a bit a mixture of Queen Mary and Queen Alexandra, except for Anne who rather inherited some features of her father's family also).

Harry resembles his grandfather a lot, but the older he gets the more of Charles I see in Harry. I think it is more the way he looks at times than any actual facial features.

Around the eyebrows Harry looks very much like Charles to me.

Princess Anne looks a great deal like George III. She is a Hanover, unfortunately, for her.

Princess Anne looks like the Countess of Harewood to me.

As for Prince Harry, I see Philip in the eyes, according to those pictures, but no Prince Charles in him. Then again plenty of people have those eyes and they are not royal so who knows. He just seems really Spencer to me, to the point where there is no real Windsor. William does look a lot like Prince Philip when he was young especially around the time Philip got engaged to Elizabeth.

Then again we all see different things. Thanks for the photo montage it did help me see why people compare Harry and Philip together.
