The phrase "like father, like son" has been around forever, and it definitely applies when it comes to Prince Harry and his son, Archie. Over the past year (has it seriously been that long?!) we've gotten to see Harry and Meghan Markle become parents for the first time, and in the process, we've seen Archie grow up through the glimpses of him they've chosen to share and the details about his personality that have made their way into the press. From everything we've seen, and what we know about this little guy, it's pretty clear that he already takes after his father in so many ways, and we have a feeling they'll only become more alike as he gets older.

Of course, we're sure that there are traits he's picking up from his mom, too. From what we've heard, Archie is a pretty friendly baby, and we've seen how kind Meghan is to everyone she meets. We can tell the ways he takes after her in his looks, too, but so far, it seems he definitely favors Harry more. He may not have much hair, but we can already tell that it's red just like his dad's, and that their baby pictures are practically identical.

Archie hasn't even been on Earth for a full year yet, but there are already so many ways we can tell that Archie is taking after his father. Read on to see how incredibly alike this father and son duo really are. They may be spending less time in the spotlight (and a lot more time in Canada) these days, but we can't wait for more photos and updates so we can see how he continues to grow and who he takes after as he becomes a big kid.

He's lucky to have Harry and Meghan as his parents, and he and his dad will probably end up best buds in the future. Their relationship is already so sweet! 

  • Red Hair

    One of the most striking similarities between Harry and Archie is the fact that they both have red hair -- which pretty cool since we would have assumed that Archie might have inherited Meghan's darker locks! "He's a happy baby," a source close to the royal family told People last year. "He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He's really adorable."

  • Facial Features

    Of course, just looking at him, we can totally see where he takes after both of his parents ... but at this point, we'd say that Archie definitely looks a bit more like his dad than his mom -- although that could totally change as he gets older. Like we said before, Archie has his dad's hair, and it already looks like he might have his dad's eyes, too. He's going to be one handsome guy! 

  • The 'Royal Look'


    Not every baby is born into royalty, but it's like Archie was made for this. We haven't seen too many photos of this little guy so far (after all, he hasn't even turned a year old yet), but many of the ones we have seen were taken at his christening in 2019. On that day, in his very fancy gown, he looked perfectly regal -- just like all the royals who have come before him, including his dad.

  • Regular Guy


    As Prince Harry has proven by the way he stepped down from being a senior royal in favor of a quieter life traveling between the UK and North America and more privacy, it seems like at heart, he's a pretty regular dude. And so far, Archie is the same. He might know how to bring it when he dresses up for a special occasion, but we get the vibe that he wants to live life as normally as possible, especially since he doesn't have a royal title.

  • Canada Love


    Meghan and Harry haven't shared too many details about what their lives are like in Canada quite yet. After all, they haven't been there that long, and of course, they want more privacy than ever before. But judging by this photo that the couple shared of Archie and Harry to celebrate the new year, it looks like Archie's fitting in perfectly, just like his dad. 

    He was made for a winter wardrobe! 

  • Mr. Flirt

    We've always seen Prince Harry as somewhat of a flirt, and according to what happened when Meghan and Archie met Desmond Tutu and his daughter, it seems like Archie is following in his footsteps in that department. "He likes to flirt," Meghan admitted during their meeting, according to Us Weekly. 

    Yep, that sounds like something he must have inherited from his dad!
