People gushed over how adorable the shy young prince looked as he nervously held his daddy’s hand and walked toward his new classroom. Most everyone can relate to those first day of school jitters!

But many royal watchers noticed something else about the photo that made them misty-eyed. It was very reminiscent of one taken 30 years ago, except that one was of William and his mother, Princess Diana, as she walked him to school.

It’s not hard to see the resemblance between the two photos or the people in them.

We’re sure Diana would have loved to be there to see her eldest grandchild head out to his first day of school. Sadly, she will never get that chance, but her legacy is being carried on through her son.

It is clear the efforts Diana made to give William and Harry as normal of an upbringing as possible had their desired effect – William is now making those same efforts with his own children.
