It is hard to ignore the striking similarities between photos of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, and snaps taken of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
In 1983, Charles and Diana became the first royal couple to take their 9-month-old son, Prince William, on a tour abroad of Australia and New Zealand.

When Kate and Will struck out on their first royal tour with their 9-month-old son Prince George, it became apparent that the duo is borrowing the playbook from Will's parents, from their itineraries to their outfits.
