Fifteen years ago, Prince William came to wear a beard, something really atypical, since he always shaves for official events.
The more casual look that the Prince of Wales has shown made some Internet users react and they were quick to point out that he resembled several of his ancestors.
Pictures of Prince William with a beard
Prince William was photographed in 2008 when he attended with the whole royal family to the morning service on Christmas Day at Sandringham Church, for that occasion the eldest son of King Charles was seen with a beard of several days.
His appearance was reminiscent of that of his father, Charles III, who in 1975 also wore a beard when he did naval exercises in Alaska.
Many have considered him to bear a strong resemblance to other members of his family lineage, such as his great-great-grandfather, King George V.
Some suggested that the bearded Prince William resembled King Edward VII when he was younger in the 1860s.
There is no doubt that Prince William with a beard looks very different and for many this look suits him, but it does not seem to be a style he will repeat as his brother Harry, the Duke of Sussex has been wearing a beard for years.
