We have proof! A genetic specialist tells the royal couple will have a beautiful brood!

When you think of Prince William and Kate Middleton, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For us, it’s how beautiful their babies would be! We asked geneticist Dr. Heinz-Josef Lenz what he thought the happy couple’s kids would look like — and he had nothing but amazing things to say!

“There is a very good chance that they will have very good looking children,” Dr. Lenz tells “Based on how the genes are inherited, half will come from the mother and the other half will come from the father, and it will depend on whose genes are more recessive and whose genes are more dominant. Example being, blond hair is more of a recessive gene.”

So, William’s blond hair might not be passed down, but at least we know Wills and Kate’s kids will have long, luscious brunette locks!

“When it comes down to it, if the parents are good looking, the kids are good looking!” Dr. Lenz adds. So we have no doubt that the royal couple’s babies will be nothing short of gorgeous!

And you never know — maybe Uncle Harry‘s red hair will be passed down to his future niece or nephew!
