(Time) - Never mind the expectation surrounding the eventual birth of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s baby this summer. Photos have already emerged of what Prince William and Kate Middleton’s offspring will supposedly look like.

The person the world has to thank for undertaking such sterling work is South Africa-based geneticist Suretha Erasmus. According to the Daily Mail, she works with families “to help them understand and make decisions about genetic conditions” (though we assume that Erasmus has not had any actual dealings with the Royal couple).

According to Erasmus, who put together Identi-Kit style images of the royal heir from early childhood through to his or her teen years, a female heir will inherit her mother’s full eyelashes and clearly defined brows, and get her blue eyes from her father (and, incidentally, from her grandmother Princess Diana). It’s also been mooted that the teenage girl in the above photo also looks like Prince William’s first cousins Eugenie and Beatrice.

A boy would take after William, especially in his teenage years, with strong teeth and jawline. And when you consider that William takes after his late mother in the looks department, there’s a good chance that his son would do too. But no matter what the sex, the Mail reports that Erasmus doesn’t think the child will have Diana’s famous blond hair. How reassuring that not everything has already been decided.
