Royal baby's striking resemblance to Prince George and Princess Charlotte

Kate Middleton and Prince William’s third royal baby has arrived and he looks nearly identical to his adorable siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, when they were born.

The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge gave excited fans their first glimpse of the as yet unnamed bub, when they stepped out onto the pavement outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s hospital last night.

And as photographs trickled through of close ups of the hours-old baby, people couldn’t get over just how much he looks like the royal couple’s other kids.

Muffled up in a precious white knit hat and a matching white shawl, which are reportedly by design house GH Hurt and Son Ltd, the baby looked totally unperturbed by the hundreds of waiting photographers and screaming fans.

Just like Prince George back in 2013, the little bub held his tiny hands up above the blanket as his doting mum smiled down at him.

However, from looking at these photos, it’s clear that while the baby may have Prince George’s button nose, he’s the spitting image of his sister, Princess Charlotte, who was born in 2015.

Just like her younger brother, Princess Charlotte was also swaddled in a blanket by GH Hurt and Son Ltd and a little bonnet hat which tied underneath her chin.

Indeed, the two-year-old seemed ecstatic today when she was pictured holding hands with her father, Prince William, as he brought her in to meet her new brother.

Beaming from ear-to-ear, Princess Charlotte waved like a pro as she skipped into the Lindo Wing.

Meanwhile, Prince George, who was dressed in his school uniform, seemed shy as he kept his head down outside the wing.
