    Prince Harry is one of the most talked about people in the world, from his marriage to Meghan Markle and his sweet comments about his newborn son baby Archie to their move to Frogmore Cottage and the rumoured royal feud.

    Despite almost everything Harry does making viral news, the 34-year-old made headlines this week for a different reason, and it’s all to do with his father, Prince Charles.

    The Duke of York posted a photo to his Instagram account this week to commemorate the Queen Mother’s birthday, with the snap being a black and white throwback shot of the Queen Mother laughing alongside Prince Charles, Princess Anne and the Duke himself, Prince Andrew.

    ‘In 1960, to celebrate [the Queen Mother’s] 60th Birthday, this photo was taken at Clarence House, and features a 6-month-old Prince Andrew sitting on her knee, Prince Charles, Princess Anne and a Corgi,’ reads the caption. ‘Until the accession of Prince Albert, The Duke of York as King George VI in 1936, Queen Elizabeth was The Duchess of York.⁣’

    But it wasn’t the caption that went viral or even the identification of the corgi photographed, instead it was Prince Charles, who commenters were quick to point out looked the spitting image of a young Prince Harry.

    ‘Wow. I see Prince Harry in Charles… amazing’, commented one user, while another posted: ‘That is Prince Harry’s twin. This could be Prince Harry, he looks just like his dad’.

    This isn’t the first time that royal photographs have gone viral for the resemblance to Prince Harry with another throwback photo of Prince Charles earlier this year having a similar effect.

    ‘I don’t see how anyone can think Prince harry doesn’t look like The Prince of Wales,’ wrote one user, while another posted that the two were ‘so alike’.

    We can’t ‘unsee’ it.
