Royal Baby Archie Looks Just Like His Dad Prince Harry & We Have Brand-New Pics to Prove It

In case you somehow missed it, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out today with their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka on their South African tour.

The 4-month-old royal was, of course, on his best behavior as he met the global figure and leader of the anti-apartheid movement. And after we got over the initial shock of an unexpected Archie sighting, we couldn’t help but notice that he looks an awful lot like Prince Harry when he was a baby. In fact, the resemblance between him and his father was striking as he sat comfortably dressed in blue and white overalls in his mother’s lap.

Need further proof? Here are side-by-side photos of 4-month-old Archie and 8-month-old Prince Harry.

On the left, you’ll see Princess Diana holding her son Prince Harry aboard the royal yacht Britannia during their royal tour of Italy. On the right, sits little Archie hobnobbing with world leaders.

The similarity in the shape of their eyes and noses are unmistakable. Then, of course, there’s their matching rotund cheeks and light hair. Actually, their outfits are even kind of similar. Trippy.

We’d be remiss not to mention, however, that Archie’s eyes also look a bit like his mom’s dark brown ones. Since he’s so young, his eye color isn’t yet permanent, but we’re curious to see if his eyes stay dark or lighten as he grows up.

Time will tell. All we can say is we’re loving this royal resemblance.
