Prince Fushimi
 
I know only of Prince Fushimi having twin daughters, Atsuko and Tomoko who looked exactly the same.

Their pic can be found here : Prince Fushimi Hiroyasu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Do identical cousins count? ;) I could marvel forever about Britain's George V and Russia's Nicholas II. That resemblance always gives me chills. They were like the Patty Duke Show of royalty.

I can't think of any identical royal twins. There are royal twins like in the Belgian royal family, but I can't think of identical ones.
The brother of Diana, Princess of Wales has identical twin daughters, but obviously they're not royal. It's the closest thing I can think of, though.

Yeah, they were born 27 March 1997. They are beautiful girls.
See wonderful pictures of the girls and their mother in Palma de Mallorca with the Spanish royals. Also one from Hola.

Oh my god! They look so similar. If I look more, I see some differences, but first I thought they looked like clones, creepy somehow, just the same picture twice, as they are also wearing the same and having the exact same hair! Does anybody know what happened to them? Tomoko died in 1947? Is Atsuko is still alive or is her death date not known?

How on earth do those children end up looking so Northern European? They are all blonde and pale complexioned... They look more like they should be a scandinavian princess than a jordanian one, I think.

How is it that the Jordanian royal family has blondies? I thought that blonde was a recessive gene, and where/from whom did they get it?

There grandmother, princess Muna, Princess Muna al-Hussein - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
was British, so maybe it is from there. I mean, King Abdullah also has blue eyes...
I don`t know about being recessive, it is probably more complex as always...
So many black-haired people in my family got blond children...

auntie 09-07-2007 01:46 AM

Yes, my hubby and I have 2 out of 3 blond blue eyed children, and I have dark bown hair and brown eyes, and my husband is hazel green eyed and auburn haired (our other child is like that!), but both grandfathers are very fair! Also look at Princess Alia, she doesn't seem to be typically middle eastern looking, I think she is Syrian, and many Syrians are European looking. (look at president Assad!)

Yeah, could be from Muna, the fair skin and eyes, but also Alia has fair complexion and sort of blond hair. Yes, King Abdullah has the most wonderful blue eyes doesn't he? :wub: He and Queen Rania are so beautiful together, and their children, my god! :angel:

I don't think they're identical, though.

Princess Atsuko was married to Count Kiyosu and died young in 1936. I have read somewhere that one of this count's children was arrested for burglary, but I do not know whether the burglar is Princess Atsuko's child. Count Kiyosu had two wives.

Sadly nobody in their family lived for long. Anyways, Princess Tomoko married (Hirohito's wife) Empress Nagako's eldest brother, Prince Kuni Asaakira. They had eight children! Princesses Masako, Asako, Michiko, Hideko, Noriko and Princes Kuniaki, Asatake, Asahiro. Prince Kuniaki is the current head of the Kuni-no-miya family.

I bet their hair will darken to the color of their mother's. My brother and I both had near platinum blond hair, deep blue eyes, and really tan skin as youngsters. Now, however, we have golden brown hair, green eyes, and really pale skin. Hahaha Of course, the sun was somewhat responsible for the extreme bleaching of our hair and completely responsible for our darker skin. Our father has really dark brown hair, almost black, kinda pasty pale skin, and blue eyes while our mother has curly strawberry-blond hair, kinda ruddy freckled skin, and brown eyes. So... genetics is really cool and mysterious.

Darn it! I wanted to be the first to mention the Karajordjevic boys! graar! But no, Prince Filip and Prince Aleksandar are fraternal. They were born in Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, USA... which just happens to be in the same county (Fairfax County) I grew up in~~ I grew up in the Town of Herndon! yaay I've been to that hospital a few times.:cool: oh and their brother, Petar, went to preschool a few minutes from my house. I like Prince Aleksandar~<3 =^^=

In fact, Middle Eastern people is not all dark, as people seems to think. I have a great Anthropology book where kinds of Arabics types are mentioned and t spokes about blonde ones (It is a book from 1860...so, no European mix there!). But he more common besides dark haired and eyed ones are red haired Middle-Eastern people . They could have hazel eyes or blue eyes or green eyes. I had a classmate whose name was Saud (she claimed to have a link with Saudi Royal House) and was Arab from both sides of her family...Well: she was deeply red-haired and blue eyed. We had other classmate from Germanic roots...who was darker than her! :biggrin: Thinks are not always Mathematics in this life...

The Countesses Josephine and Camilla of Rosenborg are (as far as I remember) identical twins.

Are the twin boys of Georg Friedrich of Prussia and Sophie of Isenburg identical? Don't remember if that was ever mentioned?
