Prince George And Prince William Had A Matching Style Moment, 33 years Apart

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. In Prince George's newest portrait, which was released on his fifth birthday on Sunday, the young royal bears a striking resemblance to father Prince William when he was a boy.

The father-son duo share the same blonde locks and sweet smile but, most noticeably, they were dressed in practically identical white button-up shirts with blue piping on the collars and sleeves, which they wore with blue shorts.

Prince William wore his version of the outfit during his brother Prince Harry's christening in 1984 (below), and during a family trip to Venice, Italy in 1985 (above).

The young Duke of Cambridge was on the Royal Yacht Britannia with his parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and his baby brother. William was only about three years old at the time the photos were taken.

Prince George's photo is from Prince Louis' christening, which took place on 9 July at St. James’s Palace. Kensington Palace released the portrait on 22 July on behalf of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

This isn't the first time Prince George has paid tribute to his father's toddler style.

In 2015, he arrived to little sister Princess Charlotte's christening in a red and white embroidered top, red shorts, white socks, and black shoes. His father wore nearly the same look decades prior, while visiting his newborn brother at St. Mary's Hospital in 1984.
