Prince William Recreates Kate Middleton's Childhood Photo, Wins The Internet

Close

Prince William captured hearts by recreating an old photo of wife Kate Middleton. The royal heartthrob sends Twitter into a right tizzy with the shot.

Taking A Moment

Prince William is currently doing the rounds in the Middle East all by himself, because Middleton is still technically on maternity leave following the birth of Prince Louis just a couple months ago.

He made a pit stop in Jordan on Sunday to meet with Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, along with Syrian refugee children who are currently partaking in UNICEF programs in the region, local young entrepreneurs, and, naturally, members of the British Embassy.

Prior to kicking off the next leg of his trip, which takes in Israel and Palestine, the Duke of Cambridge visited the archaeological site Jerash. As it happens, his wife had visited that very same location 30 years prior, while her family was stationed in Jordan for a three-year stint.

Prince William found the exact spot then-4-year-old Kate, her sister Pippa, and their father, Michael, sat to strike a similar pose. Middleton's father was working for British Airways in Amman at the time.

Sending Twitter Into A Spin

Kensington Palace tweeted the photos with a shot-by-shot recreation of the photo from Middleton's childhood.

"The Duke of Cambridge visits Jerash, the same site that The Duchess of Cambridge visited, aged 4, with her sister and father when the family lived in Jordan," read the accompanying tweet.

Twitter, unsurprisingly, went into an immediate meltdown, with fans swooning over the Prince's romantic gesture.

Doing Some Important Work

There were several other posts from the palace's account, noting the Duke's work with young Jordanians, and when he gave a speech celebrating the Queen's birthday and commemorating her 1984 visit to the country.

The Duchess, meanwhile, is sorry she can't accompany her hubby on the trip. As per PEOPLE, Prince William explained at a party that Middleton is bummed she couldn't make it.

"[She] is very sorry she cannot be here with me so soon after the birth of our son Louis, but her family remembers very fondly the almost three years she spent here as a child," he said.

The next stop on the Duke's trip, which began June 24, is Jerusalem, making him the first member of the British royal family to visit Israel on behalf of the British government.
