Grandmother Cynthia came first . . . ergo it is Diana that resembles her . . .
It's still a nice picture though.https://www.purewow.com/n...er-princess-diana-grandma
Strong genes aren't the only thing that Princess Diana inherited from her grandmother.https://www.instagram.com...05-425b-9aba-a5ea713cc7f7
Eight months after her brother, Charles Spencer, posted a charcoal sketch of Cynthia Spencer, who looked like a carbon copy of the Princess of Wales, the 57-year-old writer shared a vintage snap of their grandmother, and it's hard to miss the infamous head tilt—one of Diana's most popular go-to poses. Spencer wrote in the caption, "My grandparents enjoying their tea ‘al fresco’ at Althorp, in 1944. Photograph taken by my father whilst on leave from military training."
I know we've discussed genetics bearing on longevity but I am fascinated by strong family resemblances. Part of the genealogy bug, I think. I have a second cousin who is the spitting image of our great grandmother, I look very much like my fathers sister, and my brother is a throwback all the way to a great great grandfather - which was only discovered whilst browsing a bookshop in Gettysburg specializing in military history. I found a history of said gg grandfathers regiment in the Civil War. Checked the index, and found his photo. Bought the book, of course!
