I came across these pictures from Google Images of the Fermoy twins who were exactly clones of each other!! One of them was the 4th Baron Fermoy, maternal grandfather of Princess Diana.
On the right was the future 4th Baron Fermoy (named Maurice), according to a caption below that picture via Google Images. His amazing identical twin brother named Francis was on the left here in the picture.
Next one here, it does not say which was which brother....Maurice or Francis Fermoy.
There was a set of twins in the Fermoy family after them through the 4th Baron's older daughter, namely Antonia and Joanna Berry (Diana's maternal first cousins), but there is one set of identical twins coming from the Fermoys in the Spencer family in the form of the 9th Earl Spencer's twin daughters, Lady Eliza and Lady Amelia Spencer. Eliza and Amelia descend from the 4th Baron Fermoy through Frances Burke Roche Spencer Shand-Kydd (Diana's mother).
I wonder if there will be another set of identical twins showing up somewhere in the future.
