Allen attributes the canopic coffins to Pharaoh Neferneferuaten see footnote 66 in:

King Neferneferuaten is probably Nefertiti, Meritaten, or Neferneferuaten (daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti). So which one does the face on the coffinettes look like?

Considering how different each was depicted in different works I would say we really do not know what Nefertiti, Meritaten or Neferneferuaten looked like.

Meritaten is depicted like this:


and like this:



and maybe even like this



Doesn't really paint on coherent picture to me.

And I don't think we have a whole lot of images of Neferneferuaten-tasherit. Definitely not at a slightly older age?
