Growing up, we were told that we have our mom’s eyes and our dad’s nose (or vice versa). In some families, special birthmarks, unusually shaped fingers, or eye color can get passed down from one generation to the next. There are also some cases when the entire appearance, from the face and hair to everything else, look strikingly similar.
After looking at these photos from family albums, we at The Elite Indian are once again convinced that genes don’t lie.
At the end of the article, you’ll find a bonus feature about the British royal family.
