Prince William and Kate Middleton got back to work yesterday amid all the drama surrounding Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s decision to step down from their roles as senior members of the royal family. The couple traveled to Bradford in the U.K., where they made lassis at a Pakistani restaurant, greeted huge crowds, and visited the town’s City Hall, as well as a community center.
They also got to meet Siama Ali, the Cup Caker Bradford, who created an elaborate cake in honor of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. “This amazing lady Siama Ali from Bradford spent three days baking these amazing cup cakes & main ? to depict Kate & William’s childhood, meet, engagement, wedding & children. Lovely explainer from her & she is Cup Caker Bradford if you want to check her out!,” royal reporter Emily Andrews tweeted.
In a particularly adorable moment, Prince William pointed to one of the edible photos and said, “Is that me? Because that looks just like Charlotte. That is incredible.” Middleton agreed, adding, “It looks so much like Charlotte.” They also referred to the princess by her sweet nickname, “Lottie.”
The Windsor genes are very strong in Princess Charlotte. We can’t see the exact photo used on the cake, but just check out the resemblance between a young William and Charlotte, below. She is definitely a (very cute) spitting image of her dad.
But seriously, how cool would it be for someone to create a “This Is Your Life” cake marking all the significant times from your childhood to having your very own children?
Even for a royal, that sounds incredible, and it’s making us nostalgic for moments like the Cambridges’ engagement announcement and the first time they introduced Prince George to the world.
Those were definitely less complicated days, right? What a time to be alive!
