New furor in the UK! Prince William is following in his father’s footsteps – by marrying a woman who’s the mirror image of his childhood nanny!

The 28-year-old royal’s fiance Kate Middleton bears an uncanny resemblance to his nanny, Tiggy Legge-Bourke, while his father Prince Charles‘ wife Camilla Parker Bowles looks strikingly similar to his nanny, Mabel Anderson.

William, who recently announced his engagement to Kate, has been close to Tiggy since she became his nanny in 1993 when the prince was 11.

It was a time of turmoil for Wills as his beloved mother Princess Diana had recently separated from his father.

Tiggy’s love helped him get through those difficult days.

The future king’s fiancee Kate has the same shiny brown hair, toothy smile and even a similarly shaped chin and nose as a young Tiggy!

Meanwhile, Charles’ nanny and his wife also share eerily similar facial features, including shallow eyelids and smiles that look more like upside-down frowns.

Adding to the Camilla-Mabel parallels, Charles met Camilla when she was 23 – the same age as Mabel when she started looking after him!
