Prince William can’t turn back time and show his mother, the late Princess Diana, his newborn son, but he certainly looked a lot like her on July 23 when he showed the Prince of Cambridge to the world.
Diana had an ethereal quality about her that photographers captured as she and Prince Charles posed with William after his birth. And that same quality was captured in photos of Prince William on Tuesday as he held his son in his arms and looked at him with great love.
The look of love that passed between him and his wife Catherine, the former Kate Middleton, spoke volumes too. And the future king of England said that he was overcome with emotion about the birth of his son, but so was his wife.
CBS News reported on July 24 that when the royal couple debuted the royal baby yesterday they were compared to William’s parents when they debuted him in the 80s. And while a lot has changed since then, not so much has changed that you can’t see this mother and father also adore their son.
