Prince William young pictures: What did the Prince of Wales look like as a child? | The Sun
PRINCE WILLIAM has three adorable children with his wife, the Princess of Wales, and fans can't help but point out how similar the royals look to childhood pictures of their father.
The heir to the UK throne is eldest son of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana and, thanks to him being in the spotlight right from his birth, we are able to track just how much Prince William has changed since he was a child – and how his old pictures compare to those of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
What did Prince William look like when he was a child?
King Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales welcomed their first child together, Prince William, on June 21, 1982.
The future king had many features of his mother when he was born, boasting blonde hair, blue eyes and rosy cheeks.
Many royal family fans have spotted that William's childhood pictures look uncannily like those of his own first-born, Prince George, and second child, Princess Charlotte.
The Prince's third child, son Louis, looks more similar to his wife Kate Middleton – a fact the Princess of Wales is said to "love".
A friend told the People in 2020: "Everyone always comments on how Louis is the spitting image of Kate.
"She loves it and thinks it's very sweet, she often jokes that he's the only one of her kids who actually looks like her!"
As William entered his late teens and early 20s, he could truly turn heads – and not just because of his royal status.
Prince William had a full head of blonde hair as a child and teen, though in his twenties, signs that his har was thinning became apparent.
