George looks absolutely adorable. I love his smile. It's as if he's so pleased with himself for walking unaided :biggrin:. Such confidence comes from parents who show him nothing but love and support, and I'm sure William and Catherine do just that. Looking forward to the other two photos.

I see William mostly. George isn't an exact replica, of course, but he looks very much like his dad to me.

I see Katherine's dad spitting copy on George.

I agree 100% the shape of the face, eyes - all Mike Middleton.

I've always thought that Catherine takes after Mike, and Pippa after her mother.

George is more Middleton - I'd like to see a pic of Mike as a child but accept that won't happen.

George is the image of Michael Middleton.

And lefties rule, George, don't forget it!

Prince George: how 'Georgous' won our hearts

I did a really, really casual 'analysis' of little Georgie's features on another thread. I think the resemblance issue is all in the shape of the head and particularly the shape of the mouth. The nose, too.

Here's the results of my scouring around. :smile:

I've decided that his nose and mouth are from his mother, definitely not his father. The shape of his head and the shape of his eyes (with eyebrows) are from Kate and his grandfather Middleton. I think there is more Middleton in him than Windsor at this point - and may be why he looks so distinctive to the casual observer who is accustomed to seeing the Windsor royal babies.

I'm sure for those who tend him he flashes between resembling both parents in turn as babies do. :flowers: This is not a definitive pronouncement - just a bit of fun.

Here's 'our little Prince' -

Here is Charles as a toddler - he has a round head -

William as a toddler - he has a long head and a very different mouth - William very much represents the Spencer genes, I think. As an adult he looks very much like his Uncle Charles Spencer.

Here you can definitely see the different mouth -

Then Michael Middleton as a young man. For some maybe a long-shot, but I see Mr Middleton's eyes in William - and the round head - I could't find a toddler picture :tongue: -

I can't get the toddler picture of Kate as a stand-alone picture. It seems clear (to me) that, in the end, he resembles his mother. There is a delicacy with the mouth that seems to be Kate's 'donation', among much else.

Overall, I think George likely has William's robust frame - that is the same between the two as toddlers. George will probably be tall. He does look like a ginger but it is hard to tell at this point. My guess is he's going to be a handsome child and a good looking adult. One can already tell that he beams from being well-loved.

Now for a baby sister! :flowers:

I like "Georgous".
"Georgous" could be the Latin equivalent of the Prince's first name.


Archduchess Zelia 07-20-2014 11:49 PM

Georgous is wonderful indeed *and ever so suiting, he's such a beautiful little one. I quite like Georgesus as well :biggrin:

I agree. I really like this photo.

He's such a cutie. I think he looks a lot like William.

Aha! Thank you! I was wondering since I couldn't get a singular ID on the picture. It just showed up among Kate pictures. I will correct my posts if I still can. :flowers: (Later: I was able to change the signified picture in my link. My-oh-my but Princess Alexandra was a serious cutie as a baby!)

P.S. I still think George favors his mother's paternal side strongly - for all the reasons given. ;)

It really is hard to believe it's been a whole year since the world seemed to go slightly mad. Watching hundreds of journalists/cameramen/photographers standing outside a door for days while offering all the craziness via a 24/7 livestream was certainly pretty surreal.

Little George is adorable, though. I sense a lot of goodwill towards him even from people not at all interested in the RF.
