Unearthed photographs of young Prince William at Prince Andrew's wedding to Sarah Ferguson in 1986 show that his youngest son, Prince Louis, takes after him. 


When Prince Andrew and Duchess Sarah Ferguson tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in July 1986, four-year-old Prince William played the part of an utterly adorable page boy. 

Dressed in a sweet sailor suit, William was photographed looking super cute during the ceremony in the abbey, standing on the Buckingham Palace balcony and waving during the wedding carriage procession. 

Prince Louis' Platinum Jubilee moments left the world in awe of his hilariously cheeky nature and the snaps of him from over the big weekend are reminiscent of William as a little prince.

Prince Louis sat beside his older siblings, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, as he perfected his royal wave as The Firm gathered to celebrate the Queen's 70th year on the throne. 

Wearing a sailor outfit, similar to Prince William's 1986 ensemble, Louis, who marked his fourth birthday in April, looked out to the crowds of royal fans gathering to catch a glimpse of the Cambridge kids on their rare official outing.

While it appears that Prince Louis is the spitting image of Prince William when he was a little boy, it's been claimed that Kate Middleton thinks that Louis is the only one of her three children that look like her. 

One of Kate's close friends is believed to have shared details of the special bond she feels she and Louis share, with the insider telling People, "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!”
