Royal fans have revealed how Prince George has a striking resemblance to his late grandmother Princess Diana in a new picture.

Prince George, who recently attended the final of the European Championships at Wembley Stadium in London, looked adorable in the latest picture taken by his mother, Kate Middleton, to mark his eighth birthday.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared the portrait on Instagram and royal fans commented on the likeness between the young royal and his late grandmother, Princess Diana, who died in 1997.

One penned: "My gosh you can see William, Catherine and Diana in this photo."

"Oh my goodness look how much he resembles his Dad..and grandmother. Happy Birthday, young Prince," another added.

A third added: "Happy Birthday to Prince George. Like father like son, the resemblance is remarkable! Have a colossal day, many more to come!!"

The third in line to the throne wore a navy polo shirt with orange stripes and a pair of navy shorts as he was all smiles in the countryside and appeared to be sat on the bonnet of a Land Rover Defender.

Along with the sweet picture, a short statement said: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to share a new photograph of Prince George ahead of his eighth birthday tomorrow.

"The photograph was taken earlier this month in Norfolk by The Duchess."

Mum-of-three Kate has found a true hobby in photography as she often shares private candid snaps of her children for special moments and occasions in royal life.

Last year to celebrate his seventh birthday, the Duchess posted a beautiful picture of her son on a countryside walk as he donned a camouflage T-shirt.

Royal fans love the opportunity to get an insight into the Cambridges’ lives without the official pomp and circumstance.

Meanwhile the picture also paid tribute to the late Prince Philip with George photographed on the bonnet of a Land Rover which was a car loved by the Duke of Edinburgh.

The great-grandfather of Prince George was transported to St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in a Land Rover hearse, which he designed himself, which was "inspired by tongue-in-cheek joke he shared with the Queen".

The Land Rover was made at the manufacturers' factory in Solihull in 2003, with Prince Philip requesting a repaint in military green and designing the open top rear, with special "stops" in place to secure the coffin.
