Um, this is a new one! The Internet can’t stop talking about Kate Middleton‘s knee… and it’s not because of its tan or tone. No, instead it’s because of its resemblance to the cartoon Casper the Friendly Ghost. According to The Sun, users on reddit first pointed out the resemblance and the Internet has been blowing up ever since.

But don’t take our word for it… see for yourself in the photo below in question. It’s actually hard to deny that the Duchess of Cambridge’s left knee does resemble the cartoon character. We can’t believe we’ve never noticed this before!

Now, we’re sure the royal didn’t expect this kind of attention when she attended a new exhibit opening at London’s V&A museum earlier this summer. But, the Internet can’t be stopped. In fact, there is an entire thread titled, “Baby Face Knees” that is dedicated to finding faces in celebrities’ kneecaps. Who knew?

In case you need more convincing, just check out Casper below. The resemblance is uncanny…

And since the news broke about the Duchess’ knee, fans have had some strong opinions about it. The Royal Family has yet to speak out about the buzz over her knee — and we doubt they will — but that doesn’t mean the excitement will die down anytime soon.

The royal is famous for her classic beauty, charming style, and the effortless way she handles high-profile events. But, will her kneecaps now also become a part of her legacy? Honestly, nothing is impossible in the age of social media but we’re thinking the fuss will eventually blow over. Just not before we get a few more laughs in, though!
