There’s no doubt that great genes run in this royal family and we have the photo to prove it.
Wearing military-inspired Alexander McQueen couture, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton visited Bletchley Park June 18 to mark its official opening as a museum. E! Online is reporting that Bletchley Park, which underwent a $13.6 renovation, is “where computer scientist Alan Turning famously cracked the Enigma code, which Nazi Germany used to encrypt secret messages in 1941.”
“This helped Britain and the Allies win the war four years later,” the celebrity news site reports. The incident is set to be turned into a movie starring actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
But the most surprising fact of all? Middleton’s grandmother, Valerie Glassborow, helped intercept enemy signals for Britain where she worked during the war. Valerie died in 2006 at the age of 82. A photo of the 32-year-old’s granny was tweeted by Clarence House, which represents Middleton’s immediate royal family and the likeness is incredible.
Like her famous granddaughter, Valerie’s hair was perfectly coiffed and she revealed those recognizable eyes and smile.
Even 90-year-old Lady Marion Body, who, according to E!, worked with Valerie at the site during the war, commented there was a likeness between the Duchess and her grandmother.
“Yes, the eyes,” remarked Body.
