Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are now very familiar faces. But before any of them were born, the world was desperate to know what Prince William and Kate Middleton's children might look like.

Taking one for the team, genetic counsellor Suretha Erasamus predicted what a mesh of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge might look like in girl and boy baby form in the months leading up to Prince George's birth.

And, well, it was too good not to share - now we've got the benefit of hindsight.

Based on Erasamus' insights, Theuns Kruger drew up six photo fits of what William and Kate's offspring might look like; he imagined a female baby and a male baby, as well as four suggestions of how their children might look as young adults (male with blonde hair, male with brown hair, female with blonde hair, and female with brown hair).

The illustrations predicted the children might share characteristics with the facial features of their grandmother, Princess Diana, based on Prince William's strong resemblance to his mother.

And while it's pretty safe to say neither George, Charlotte or Louis look or looked anything like the babies in these impressions, it's funny to see what they might have looked like in a parallel universe...

Yeah. We told you they weren't exactly... accurate.

Out of interest, here's what the artist predicted Kate and William's kids to look like as young adults. To me, the female impressions pretty much just look like Kate Middleton with a different haircut, and the male impressions just look like Prince William with a different haircut, but you never know how Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis might develop...

Based on this, I can't wait to see what the future brings for the Cambridge kids.
