Prince Harry in Uniform Truly Looks Just Like Prince Philip in Uniform in 1957 Photo


As the world remembers Prince Philip, more and more pictures from his life are being shared and remembered. These pictures sometimes show us things we didn’t expect. For example, one photo shared on Instagram makes it clear that Prince Harry and Prince Philip look a lot alike.

Chris Jackson is the royal photographer for Getty Images. Recently, he remembered a photo he had seen of Prince Philip and decided to share it on Instagram. He wrote, “I was reminded today of this incredible vintage @parismatch_magazine from 1957 I acquired a few years ago. I was blown away the minute I spotted it. It always reminds me of the unique, historic reference points that Royal photography provides. The front cover features a fantastically suave Prince Philip on tour with The Queen.”

If we didn’t know this was a photo of Prince Philip from 1957, we might mistake it for a photo of Prince Harry in uniform. The red beard. The blue eyes. The smile. They really do look a lot alike in uniform.

Almost every person who commented on Jackson’s post pointed out the resemblence between Philip and Harry. One comment reads, “Totally did a double take thinking it was Harry.”

Another person wrote, “I’ve always thought Harry resembles this grandfather, and this photo is proof why.”

Like his grandfather, Prince Harry served in the British Army, and in 2017, he succeeded his grandfather as Captain General of the Royal Marines, a title he gave up when stepping down as a senior member of the royal family.

Do you think Prince Harry and Prince Philip look a lot alike?
