One wrote: ‘I can see the resemblance. Louise looks like a royal from another century.’

Another commented: ‘She does look like Queen Mary. Unbelievable.’

Others added that the pair were ‘twins’ with Lady Louise being a ‘carbon copy’.

Many were keen to point out shared features between the two including the shape of their chin, lips and nose. 

Lady Louise, who has a younger brother, James, Viscount Severn, 12, is the daughter of the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

Queen Mary of Teck is her great great grandmother. She married George V, her dead fiance’s brother, who reigned from 1910 to 1936 before the couple went on to have six children.

As Queen Consort from 1910, she supported her husband through the First World War, his ill health, and major political changes arising from the aftermath of the war. 

After George’s death in 1936, she became Queen Mother when her eldest son, Edward VIII, ascended the throne – however he abdicated later the same year in order to marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. 

Her second eldest son George VI, who had married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, now known as The Queen Mother, in 1923, took the throne in December 1936. His eldest daughter is the Queen.

George VI was beset by smoking-related health problems in the later years of his reign and died of coronary thrombosis in 1952.
