The Daily Caller noticed some peculiar similarities between England’s royal family and the Clinton family.
The Daily Caller said the Clinton’s were “channeling the royal family” when they presented their daughter Chelsea, son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky, and daughter Aidan to the world. All the while, Bill and Hillary Clinton were standing alongside the young couple and their newborn.
The comparison between the moment Kate Middleton, husband Prince William, and newborn son William was presented to the world (2015) and the Clinton’s baby announcement (2016) may be coincidental to some, and carefully planned to others.
Upon leaving the hospital, the photo taken showed Chelsea Clinton dressed like Middleton, wearing a flowery sun dress. Mezvinsky was wearing a button-down, stiff collared shirt covered by a plain v-neck sweater and slacks, the same type of clothing Prince William was wearing when they, too, exited the hospital.
Both the royal family and the Clinton’s newborns were wrapped in white blankets, although baby Aidan’s head was not covered like young William’s was, which may be the only noticeable difference between the two photos. Also, both new mothers were holding their newborns in their right arms.
While The Daily Caller contended “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” it is an election year after all, which may lead some to wonder if the event was planned to give Hillary Clinton a more stately appearance.
Social media noticed, too.
If you don’t make a grand exit when you leave the hospital, did you really have a baby? https://t.co/AoAsYxPDMG

But commoners also noticed a difference of their own.
