Prince Harry shares a striking resemblance to his son, Prince Archie, in a never-before-seen family snap.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child, Archie in May 2019, just over a year after their lavish fairy tale wedding in Windsor.

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announced they were leaving the Royal Family less than eight months later and shocked the world when they decided to relocate to the US to start a new life with their son.

In June 2021, they became a family of four as they welcomed their adorable baby girl Lilibet, who was named after Harry's late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, the Mirror reports.

Since quitting the Firm in early 2020, the former royal couple have tried to keep their children out of the spotlight but eagle-eyed fans have recently spotted a rare snap of little Archie which looks an awful lot like Prince Harry.

During the opening credits of the Sussexes' Netlix docuseries Harry & Meghan, a sweet snap of Harry and Archie playing together appears with the father-son duo looking almost identical.

Flashing an adorable grin at mum Meghan who was behind the camera, Harry can be seen laughing in the background with the exact same grin.

Many royal fans have said in the past that the little prince bears a remarkable resemblance to his mother in the past but others have now argued that the youngster is actually the spitting image of his father with his fiery red hair.

One person said on X: “Archie looks so much like Meghan. Lilibet looks like Harry and the Spencer's, with a touch of Meghan.”

While another disagreed: “People say he looks like Meghan but I see baby Harry in Archie.”

The duke has previously opened about the huge impact his son had on his life and revealed he felt a close connection with his late mother, Princess Diana, when Archie arrived.

The 39-year-old said he could feel his mother's "presence" as he navigated his way through parenthood.

He explained: "I have no doubt that my mom would be incredibly proud of me. I'm living the life that she wanted to live for herself, living the life that she wanted us to be able to live.

"So not only do I know that she's incredibly proud of me, but that she's helped me get here."

Back in 2021, Harry revealed Archie's unusual first word which was "crocodile" as he told James Corden that his son was just like him.

He said: “My son is now over a year and a half, he is hysterical, he's got the most amazing personality, he's already putting two, three words together, he's already singing songs. His first word was 'crocodile', three syllables.”

Harry opened up on more personal details of his eldest child's upbringing during a speech at the Invictus Games in 2022 as he revealed the ambitious youngster wanted to be a helicopter pilot, just like Harry, when he was older.

He said: “When I talk to my son Archie about what he wants to be when he grows up, some days it's an astronaut, other days it's a pilot - a helicopter pilot obviously.

"But what I remind him is that no matter what you want to be when you grow up, it's your character that matters most, and nothing would make his mum and me prouder than to see him have the character of what we see before us today.”
