Royal fans stunned by Prince William’s resemblance to Diana in sweet video comparing mother and son

Royal fans have dubbed Prince William the ‘spitting image’ of Diana after a sweet video montage of the mother and son went viral. 

TikTok account @AngelSkyFire shared a clip comparing the late Princess with her son the Prince of Wales, captioning the video: ‘Prince William looks so much like his mother Princess Diana.’

Many social media users were amazed by the similarities between the two royals, with one writing: ‘Never realised he also did that famous Diana eye move!’ 

The viral video – which has amassed over 4.5m views – opens with a clip of Prince William holding his godson Prince Constantine Alexios of Greece and Denmark during his 1999 christening. 

The video then jumps to a clip of Princess Diana during a royal engagement believed to be in the 1990s. The late mother-of-two is captured on video pulling the same expression as her son

The Prince of Wales – who was only 17 at the time – is seen holding baby Constantine and keeping his head bowed.

While listening to the Greek Orthodox priest during the ceremony, Prince William is caught on camera glancing down at the floor for a split second before then restoring his gaze – which royal fans have dubbed the ‘Spencer look’.

The TikTok then jumps to a clip of Princess Diana pulling the same expression and laughing during a royal engagement in the 1990s. 

Next, the royal fan highlighted a moment during the 2018 Royal Air Force service at Westminster Abbey.

While sitting in the front row next to Kate Middleton, the then-Duke of Cambridge was filmed struggling to contain a smile as his uncle Prince Edward reportedly told someone in the ceremony to kneel down.

The TikToker then followed this up with a clip of Princess Diana flashing the same smile as she posed for photos during another royal engagement.

The clip has amassed over 357,000 ‘likes’ since it was uploaded last month and fans went wild over the resemblance between the late royal and her son.

One commented: ‘Like mother, like son!’

Another commented: ‘Looks like his mother completely!’ 

‘He’s so much like his mother,’ another added. 

‘He has her eyes,’ a fourth asserted.

Earlier this year, the Prince of Wales was photographed smiling slightly as he left Westminster Hall in the back of a car following the vigil for the Queen. 

The photograph led to comparisons between the prince, 40, and his mother Diana at an engagement shortly before her death in 1997.

Side-by-side photos show the striking likeness between mother and son.

One tweeted: ‘Prince of Wales leaving Westminster Hall after standing guard at Queen’s coffin for 15 minutes. William’s facial so similar to his late mother, Princess Diana.’ 

Meanwhile, royal fans have also claimed Princess Charlotte is starting to show a resemblance to her grandmother too. 

Ahead of the Euro2022 final in August, the father-of-three posted a video with Princess Charlotte to share their support for the Lionesses.

Royal fans went wild over how much Princess Charlotte looks like her late grandmother Princess Diana in a video from earlier this year (left, Diana in 1970, aged nine, and right, Charlotte) 

‘We both want to wish the lionesses the best of luck tonight, you’ve done amazingly well in the competition and we’re rooting for you all the way!’ Will exclaimed, before Charlotte chipped in: ‘Good luck, I hope you win. Bye!’

Royal fans rushed to point out the family resemblances, noting how similar Princess Charlotte looks to Diana.

One commented: ‘Charlotte is starting to look just like Princess Diana.’

Another wrote: ‘Princess Charlotte = Princess Diana’s looks + Kate’s idiosyncrasy.’
