King Charles Striking Resemblance To Surprising Royal Relative

A young King Edward VII, the eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, looked remarkably similar to his great-great-grandson King Charles in his 30s, as seen in the striking image.

Both men ascended the throne later in life following the deaths of their monarch mothers, Queen Victoria and Queen Elizabeth II, respectively.

According to the Historic Royal Palaces official website, Edward was exceptionally well-traveled and had a passion for art.

“In 1892, after the tragic death of his son, the Duke of Clarence, Edward commissioned Alfred Gilbert to create the Art Nouveau tomb at Windsor.

“This extraordinary tour-de-force of whiplash metal forms and sculpted figures is a fine memorial, located in the Albert Memorial Chapel, at St George’s Chapel, though it rather dominates in size and scale.”

Edward also gifted Fabergé eggs to his wife, Queen Alexandra of Denmark, who had been introduced to Fabergé by her sister, Marie Fedorovna, the Tsarina of Russia from 1881.

Edward was responsible for numerous refurbishments to both Buckingham Palace and Sandringham. One of his most famous commissions at Sandringham was a collection of model animals.

“Craftsmen came to Sandringham and made wax models of the animals and then the models were sent to Moscow where they were carved in different hard stones in the workshop of Henrik Wigström. They were kept in stock by Fabergé London and purchased over the years by family and friends. The Royal Collection now has more than 200 of them,” the website explains.
