Prince William, Kate Middleton & Prince George Doppelgangers Pose In Bathtub
Prince William and Kate Middleton’s firstborn son Prince George was christened yesterday at St. James’ Palace, but appeared to be taking a different sort of bath with his parents in a family photo staged by look-a-likes.
Photographer Alison Jackson found two actors that resembled the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge remarkably well, set them up in elaborate sets and gave them a baby to serve as the three-month-old Prince George, reported People magazine. In one photograph, the faux royal family shares a bubble bath. In another, Kate encouragingly watches on as William changes George's diaper. A third photo shows the Queen of England snapping a picture of her grandson and his wife holding the infant as he sports a mini King’s crown.
"Jackson raises questions about whether we can believe what we see when we live in a mediated world of screens, imagery and Internet," Jackson’s website bio reads. "She comments on our voyeurism, on the power and seductive nature of imagery, and on our need to believe."
Speaking to Jackson’s notion of the public’s voyeuristic tendencies, especially when it comes to celebrity, royal supports sat outside St. James’ Palace on Wednesday with the hope of catching a glimpse of the young royal family, reported CNN. Inside the chapel, The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. Justin Welby addressed the magnified significance of the infant prince’s baptism, as he provides a window into the future of the monarchy for the British people.
While the royals are a favorite subject of Jackson’s, she’s also employed look-a-likes to stage a bath featuring American entertainment celebs – Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and their baby girl North West.
