"George looks like Diana's side, Charlotte looks like The Queen, and Louis looks like Kate! Beautiful family," another remarked.

Of Prince Louis, one wrote: "Louis looks like Kate’s father. Oh my, the kids are getting so big now!"

Prince William and Kate have often spoken about who their kids take after and in January this year, as the father-of-three was shown an incredible cake featuring pictures of their family, the royal was left confused over one particular snap, not knowing if it was him or Charlotte.

Asking the woman, William queried: "Is that me? Doesn't it look like Charlotte?" To which an astonished Kate replied: "It looks so much like Charlotte." William then asked again: "Is that me?" Upon confirmation that the photo was indeed of him and not little Charlotte, he said: "Oh my goodness that looks just like Charlotte. It's incredible, I haven't seen that before. Very alike in similarity. Well done you, that's a lot of hard work. Mary Berry would be very impressed right now. Incredible."
