As for Harry - he was very much like Philip's father when he was younger and now is resembling his father more and more.
Yes, clearly the canard of Harry being a Hewlitt become more I obvious as he gets older.

Could someone please explain what is wrong with little Lady Louise's eyes? Can this problem be corrected?

I think she is receiving treatment, and because of that she's so much better, because when she was younger, her eyes were definately worse than they are now.

I imagine Lou wears an eye patch at school and home to strengthen her eye muscles.

Lady Louise has exotropia which is a condition that causes her eyes to turn inwards/outwards. It is caused by a weakness in her eye muscles and can affect the person's focusn. Louise rings her eyes at times with her hand to focus more. The condition can be correcte via surgery but it has been widely reported that Edward and Sophie chose not to but her eyes do appear to be slightly better.

Does it have anything to do with the fact that she was born six weeks early?

We don't actually know how premature Louise was. It was reported she was a month early/4 weeks early, thus she was born at 36 weeks gestation which isn't THAT premature. Her birth weight was considerably small for 36 weeks gestation though. Exotropia/Esotropia, otherwise known as strabismus and divergent squint's, are associated with prematurity but it is not necessarily the cause as many full term babies have the condition. It results when the muscles in the eyes weaken, and this can happen much earlier on in pregnancy. "Congenital exotropia presents in infants younger than 6 months. Children who are born premature are at higher risk of developing strabismus; however, congenital exotropia does not occur at a higher rate in premature children."Source.

Perhaps the placental abruption, which would have been an insult to the baby, (I do not mean that in a negative way - insult is the term used to describe anything during pregnancy that can cause hypoxia/reduced oxygen to an unborn baby), could have caused it but we'll never know. Louise is very lucky to be alive as sudden placental abruptions are very dangerous and reduce oxygen to the fetus drastically and can often result in death.

My brother's placenta separated at 30 weeks, and my mom was in labour for 30 hours after her water broke (or, rather, leaked); from 8:30 am on the Friday until just before 3:00 pm on the Saturday, when the doctors did a C-section. My dad was with her almost the whole time. Thankfully they both lived. My brother was in the NICU for almost 6 weeks weighing 3 lbs. 9 oz. at birth, and only needed oxygen the first day of his life. He was home before his original due date of April 3, 1996. He's now 17 and is finishing up grade 11, with over a 90 percent average. His favourite subjects are English and Latin. At 6 foot 1, he's taller than both our parents (Our dad used to be 5 foot 9, but he's shrinking) and it's likely he'll keep growing for another year or so.

It depends on the separation of the placenta. Partial separation, which is likely what happened to your brother at 30 weeks, is ok and the unborn baby compromises for it as they are designed to do. In Sophie's case the abruption was likely an immediate abruption resulting in a lot of blood loss and severe abdominal cramps, which is why they had to do an emergency c section under general anaesthetic. They likely scanned Sophie and saw the separation of the placenta and the baby's heartrate was likely very slow. They perhaps noticed Sophie's blood pressure being very, very high which is a cause for placental abruptions. I say this because it all happened in a very short period - there was no hanging around waiting to see if the CTG (which is the machine used to monitor baby's heartbeats during labour) got any better etc. I am a midwife and we see partial abruptions quite a lot (which is sometimes why when a woman's waters break they are pink/blood stained), but baby's compromise for themselves and their oxygen and pH levels are often alright. Baby's are often very anaemic (low iron levels) after birth due to the large blood loss to themselves, but their oxygen levels are at times alright. Abruptions are just more dangerous if they happen suddenly and come away completely.

Adding a few to this:

Zara: Princess Anne without a doubt!
Louise: Prince Edward, right down to her little gapped teeth.
James: I think he looks quite like Charles as a young boy, particularly as a toddler.

IMO, Lord Frederick Windsor and King Edward VII have the same eyes.

Regarding other members of the BRF: I see a lot of Prince Edward in Lady Louise, whilst her brother, Viscount Severn looks a bit like Prince Edward did when he was a child. I also think that Prince Harry looks a lot like Prince Phillip, whilst I think that Prince William looks like his cousin, Peter Phillips. I've always thought that the Viscount Linley and his daughter Margarita bear a strong resemblance to Princess Margaret. Margarita also reminds me of her aunt, Lady Sarah Chatto. I'm not quite sure who her brother Charles looks like. Here are some comparisons I found online of The Queen Mother, Princess Eugenie, Queen Victoria and Princess Beatrice:

The Queen Mother and Princess Beatrice:
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/...72_634x432.jpg

I don't really see a strong resemblance here, but their eyes are similar.

Princess Beatrice and Queen Victoria:
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/...41_634x355.jpg
http://i739.photobucket.com/albums/x...g?t=1256264313

I see more resemblance between them in the first picture; their eyes and hair are very similar (except Victoria's hair was darker).

I think Lord Linley, Lady Sarah and Lady Margarita all look like Anthony Armstrong-Jones. It's the jaw line and bone structure; they're all Lord Anthony imo.

I agree, David and Sarah both very much take after their father (and Margarita almost is a carbon copy of her aunt).

After seeing more pictures, I also see a resemblance to Lord Snowdon in Margarita. But I think she looks like her father the most:

I've always been of the opinion that Prince William looked like Diana, but of late he is beginning to look exactly like the Earl of Wessex.

Princess Beatrice and Queen Victoria have the same Hanoverian eyes, as do King Edward VII and many others.

To me Princess Eugenie looks like her father Prince Andrew

Zara Philips like Princess Anne

Prince Harry like Prince Philip and sometimes like the Earl Spencer too.

Lady Louise like the Queen

The Queen like Queen Mary

Lady Gabriella Windsor reminds me of Queen Alexandra ( nobody else thinks they do!)

Prince Michael like Tsar Nicholas II of Russia

Lord Frederick Windsor looks like the old Hanoverian men - especially the eyes

I think Edward mostly looks like his mother. Especially in those photos!

I think little Mia looks quite a lot like her mum actually, but it's difficult to tell when they're so small and we haven't got a picture of baby Mike to compare with.

I think Daniel and Victoria resemble each other so if their daughter resembles one she also resembles the other.
