This 1957 Photo of a Royal Relative Looks Eerily Like Prince Harry

Posted on

 

Royal double take!

A vintage photo of Prince Philip on the cover of Paris Match in 1957 is giving major Prince Harry vibes!

Philip, who was around 36 years old at the time of the photo, is the spitting image of his grandson in the striking cover shot, which was posted on Instagram by Getty Images Royal Photographer Chris Jackson.

With their matching pale blue eyes, red beards and mischievous smiles, there’s no denying the family resemblance between the two royals.

And the similarities don’t stop at their good looks. They both share a sense of duty. Prince Philip joined the Royal Navy in 1939 and served during WWII.

Prince Harry served in the Army for 10 years and was deployed twice to Afghanistan. He has since been a vocal champion for active and veteran military members through a variety of efforts, including his Paralympic-style Invictus Games.

The duo also shares a wicked sense of humor. Prince Harry’s playful personality is always on display. And Prince Philip — whose tongue is sharp as ever! — is known for cracking jokes.
