Images captured decades apart have got Royal fans talking as they compare similarities between Prince William and his son Prince George’s first Wimbledon appearance with that of a photo of Princess Diana and a young Prince William.

The 8-year-old, and oldest child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, made his official Wimbledon debut on Sunday, July 10, as he joined his parents in the Royal Box to watch the thrilling match.

The images shared on Twitter, show a young Prince William, 9, taken 31 years ago, seated beside his mother, Princess Diana, as she explains what’s happening in the game alongside a photo of Prince George seated beside his father, explaining the game in a similar manner as his late mother.

Royal fans were quick to share their appreciation for the similarities on social media, noting the “great memories” the family is making.

The similarities between Princes don’t merely stop at appearances, the young Prince George is proving to be just as generous as his father after it was recently revealed he hosted a bake sale to raise money for charity during the global lockdowns.

As reported by Nine, Prince George’s bake sale was dedicated to Prince William’s patronage, Tusk, an organisation dedicated to “initiating and finding wildlife conservation programmes across Africa”, as described via their official website.

In an interview with GB News, Tusk Chief Executive, Charlie Mayhew, revealed the young Prince’s touching community efforts to help raise money for at-risk species.

“Prince George very sweetly did a little cake sale to raise money for Tusk during lockdown and wrote a very sweet card about it, clearly demonstrating his concern for Africa’s wildlife,” Mayhew said.

His father’s charitable initiatives were on full display recently, with Prince William taking to the streets of Westminster to sell Big Issue magazines in a touching “silent gesture”.
