This is said a lot but IMO its a bit like Beatrice. In Williams case all people want to see is his mother. As he has got older I can see a real resemblance to Prince Phillip. Yes, a lot of his mannerisms are his mothers but in actual looks - he is very much a Mountbatten-Windsor.

The resemblance between Queen Elizabeth II and her grandmother Queen Mary is amazing.

I am glad that someone else thinks this.

I can remember seeing a photo of William aged about 15, just before or after Diana died, and I commented then on just how much he reminded me of the photo I have seen of Philip aged about 15. I think it was the photo of him in Macbeth but to me then the resemblance was very real.

I can see some of his mother in him but to me he is more and more resembling his paternal grandfather.

Family Resemblences

Hello my name is Scott and this is my first post on this board.

I think that Queen Elizabeth is the spitting image of her father , but especially of grandmother Queen Mary.

I agree too. I first noticed their resemblance when I saw a picture of Philip in the Macbeth play.

I have always felt Queen Elizabeth is the double of her grandmother Queen Mary, especially as she has got older.

Arrow Queen Elizabeth II = Queen Mary

Hello Everyone,

Yes, I have thought for many years that The Queen resembled her grandmother.
I remember seeing pictures of Queen Mary when she was young and engaged to The Duke of York. She looks just like Princess Elizabeth then, very pretty.

The Queen was just here in Alberta to attend our centennary celebrations and I attended a banquet for her. I was at table 12 and so got to see her up close. She was wearing a Russian Fringe tiara and with her grey hair several times I thought it was Queen Mary up there sitting on the dias. Incredible!!!!!!!

Regards,
Larry

Family Resemblances

I've often thought Queen Mary passed on some rather strong genes to her children and grandchildren, and that Peter Phillips and Prince William look very much alike (especially in the mouth and the way they carry themselves). Sometimes it's hard to forget in all of our scrutiny of the royal that they are after all a large extended family and we get to watch the way they grow, change, and age.

I think Queen Victoria passsed some strong genes. All her sons looked alike. King George V with Czar Nicholas II looked very similiar. The British royal family is not great looking I think. Except Diana's sons.

How about, Zara?, Ella?, Queen Elizabeth as a young lady?
Edward young...
Anne young...

Resemblences

I think almost all of the Queen's children bear a VERY strong resemblence to their father, with the exception of Andrew, he looks more like his mother than the other three, although a few times I have seen pictures of Anne where she looks a lot like her mother.

Its kinda cool.

Queen Elizabeth bears some resemblence to the late Queen Mary. They have the same facial features wouldn't you say?

The resemblance between Nicholas II and George V was uncanny.

Not a total surprise considering that they were first cousins, through their mothers being sisters.

Personally I have always thought that William and Peter Philips have a lot of a young Prince Philip about them.

When I was in London in 2002 there was an exhibition of paintings and photos of the Queen's official visits to the City of London during her reign and one of the paintings that I enjoyed seeing was the painting of her return in 1977 from the Commonwealth Jubilee Tour. As I identified the various figures I was surprised to see Prince Harry in the painting - I went back and checked - it was in fact a 13 year old Prince Edward!!!

They do!
I've often thought that Elizabeth learned many mannarisms from her grandmother, facial expressions included.

I think a lot of close resemblances in the royal family have to do with recessive genes, just like in the Hapsburgs. The blue-eyed blonde, recessive chin, large ears, and pale-skinned look seem to be typical of inbreeding among a small gene pool where the recessive genes are expressed more often because they're reinforced by the many years when relatives married and produced children.

I've seen these uncannily close resemblances among cousins and second cousins before, and it always seems to be pale blue-eyed blondes from families which come from small towns and so probably also were breeding from a small gene pool for many years up until the not too distant past.
