When watching any episode of Netflix‘s The Crown, it’s next to impossible not to draw comparisons from the storylines to the rumors and news we hear about the current-day royals. How could you not think about Prince William and Prince Harry‘s relationship when watching the tension between Queen Elizabeth and her younger sister, Princess Margaret over trying to be a good sister and a good monarch? And it’s only natural to feel like you “know” Prince Charles a bit better after watching a fictionalized version of his younger years, especially in the show’s third season.
But we’re guessing you might not have caught this very subtle fashion nod to Prince George in season three. In episode seven, “Moondust,” the royal family (minus Prince Charles) is seen walking to church. In the scene, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s youngest child, Prince Edward, is seen wearing a grey coat that looks almost exactly like the one Prince George wore to Christmas Day church services with his family in 2016.
Take a look for yourself: Here’s Prince Edward in the scene, recreating a day in 1969.
The Duchess of Cambridge is famous for dressing her oldest son (and the heir to the throne) in a classic English style that often nods to his dad and his uncle, Prince Harry. Here they are in similar looks for a christening: young William at Harry’s and George at Prince Louis’s.
Look at these adorable royals in almost identical outfits. William is leaving the hospital after first meeting his baby brother and George is at Charlotte’s christening.
They’ve even had similar father/son moments on the Buckingham Palace balcony during Trooping the Colour.
Long live the tradition of royal twinning—both in the (semi) fictionalized world of The Crown and IRL.
