The first photos of Duchess Meghan (née Markle) and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, in South Africa debuted on Wednesday, September 25, and fans couldn’t help but notice that the 4-month-old looks exactly like his dad. Clearly, those royal genes are strong!
While it’s too early to tell, it looks like as of now, Archie’s hair will a bit darker than Harry’s. Besides that, they are basically the same person when looking at photos of them both from around the same age. Fans couldn’t help but make comparisons. “How much does baby Archie look like Prince Harry as a baby? I cannot cope with the cuteness,” tweeted one person. “Archie and Harry are twins,” wrote a second fan. “May I now present to you all, King Archie, Harry’s accomplishment in cloning himself,” a third fan tweeted. Even Ellen DeGeneres, who recently met the royal family — seems to agree! “He looks like Harry,” the comedian, 61, revealed on her show in early September.
Besides looking identical, Harry and Archie seem to have more in common. The two already have a special bond and enjoy playing together. According to a source who spoke exclusively to Life & Style, Archie “giggles away when Harry plays Peek-a-boo with him.” How adorable! Don’t worry, though. Archie still has some qualities that he possibly got from his mama. Harry has always been known to be outgoing and funny. Meanwhile, the former actress is more reserved and so far, their son seems to take on after her. Evidently, Meghan loves it. “She feels blessed to have such a happy, calm baby,” another source told Life & Style. “Motherhood is the best thing that’s ever happened to Meghan. That, and marrying Harry.”
Ever since giving birth to Archie in May, Meghan has been focusing on balancing work and her family life, according to another insider. We think she’s doing a great job, though! For instance, during a recent meeting with SmartWorks — the charity she’s collaborating with to help women properly dress in the workplace — Meg had to leave early to attend her mommy duties. “I’ve got to get back to the baby, it’s feed time,” the duchess was overheard telling a group of women. She can do it all!
