An interesting theory on the topic is based on the Duke of Cambridge and Rose's similar facial features. Is it possible that the pair find each other attractive subconsciously due to the resemblance they share?

One study discovered that the longer a couple stays together, the more likely they are to start to look alike. Psychologist Robert Zanjonc came to this conclusion after analyzing pictures of couples taken when they were newlyweds and compared them to photos taken 25 years later.

But what about an already existing resemblance? Do they also factor into our choices in romantic partners?

A report published on PsychologyToday found that it's not actually that surprising to find ourselves attracted to people who share the same physical features that we do. Subjects in the research were shown pictures of strangers and photos of themselves morphed with the photos of those strangers. They found that they were more attracted to the pictures in which their faces have been morphed.

In other words, they subconsciously recognized a familiar image of themselves in those strangers' photos and were more drawn to it.

Would you like some more evidence? As it turns out, there are celebrity couples whose eery resemblance to each other may confirm this theory.
