Twitter user started circulating a series of intimate Middleton family photos from Kate's special day. The pictures show a baby Kate in a flowing, white christening gown, being doted on by pretty much every member of her family.

In the adorable photos, it's clear to see that Kate's eyes look exactly the same today as they did when she was an infant. Baby Kate also a bears striking resemblance to her oldest son, Prince George, who has become known for making the most adorable pouty faces in public.
