Much is made of the strong resemblances within the royal family - but one photo had even Prince William doing a double take.

The Prince of Wales suffered a case of mistaken identity in 2020 when he paid a visit to the Khidmat Centres in Bradford with his wife, Princess Kate.

The couple were presented with cupcakes baring beautiful photos of the royal couple to mark their important milestones, including their wedding day and the births of their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. But it was when Prince William bent down for a closer inspection that he became confused.

In this video you can find out what what the shocked Prince said next and which famous cook he namechecked.

It comes after Princess Kate sparked identity confusion just last week when she shared a childhood photo as part of her Shaping Us campaign.

Kate posted a photograph showing her in the arms of her father, Michael Middleton, reaching out and touching his face with her hands. and while many royal fans doted over the adorable photograph, several were baffled.
