Meet the 10 months old who is the spitting image of Prince George

    A baby boy has left members of the public doing a double take because of his striking resemblance to Prince George. Alfie Simmons-Ronco, ten months, has the same blond hair and brown eyes as the third-in-line to the throne, and even shares George's cheeky personality too. Speaking to HELLO! Online, Alfie's mum Fabiana Ronco said she first noticed the resemblance when strangers began to approach her on the street to tell her how much her son looked like the two-year-old Prince.
