An 11-month-old has won a competition to find the royal baby’s lookalike.

Freddie Minnis from Essex beat “hundreds of hopefuls” to land the title of “professional lookalike” for Prince George.

Just shy of his first birthday, the son of Prince William and Kate Middleton has already graced the cover of Vanity Fair- we expect big things from this chap, secretly hoping he takes after his mischievous uncle Harry.

Freddie, who was born just four days before the prince, was picked as part of a nationwide competition run by My1stYears.com to find the first professional Prince George look-a-like.

The youngster has already done his first day’s work, modelling novelty babygros for the aptly named Crown Collection, launched just in time for Prince George’s first birthday tomorrow.

Freddie’s mother Carleysaid that, during the Australia/New Zealand tour, family friends began commenting on her son’s resemblance to George, not only in terms of his looks but also his personality, as he “adores animals” and is “happy and laid back.”

Carly added that just like George, “If Freddie isn’t doing what he wants, he has a very cute pouty, sulky face’.
