London - "Just like his father Wills," an official Palace palm reader commented as zoom lens close-ups of Baby Cambridge's mitts went viral on the net today.
Decoding of nascent tracks on the infant's hands has revealed the same muddled crisscross mess as William's in what royal chiromancers have described as signs of a classic wannabe.
"The babe's also got what we call 'gold-digger's thumbs," the fortuneteller added, "it's almost a carbon copy of his mother Kate's own greedy digits."
Other tell-tale signs are said to include the classic 'simian crease' first spotted on Cambridge Junior's paternal grandfather Tony Blair's hands at his 2001 Camp David summit with George W Bush.
The indentation forms through the fusing of a hand's head and heart lines in what palmists reckons shows a throwback aspect connected to human evolution from great apes.
Expect more details to emerge later on the Palace website.
