Prince Harry has been getting people talking again – but for a different reason this time.

  • Prince Harry fans have spotted something adorable in a new royal photo.
  • Prince Andrew took to his Instagram page to share the sweet snap.
  • This royal news comes after the Duchess of York made an exciting announcement.

Prince Harry has been getting royal fans talking a lot over the last couple of years.

First back in November of 2016 with the introduction of his then-girlfriend, now Duchess Meghan.

Then a year later when the couple announced their engagement.

And of course the last year and a half has seen the Prince’s wedding to the former actress and the birth of the couple’s first child Master Archie Harrison.

But now the Duke of Sussex has got royal fans in a tizzy for a completely different reason – and it’s all to with his dad.

Earlier this week saw the duke’s uncle, Prince Andrew, take to Instagram to share a sweet post commemorating the Queen Mother’s birthday.

Alongside a black and white snap of the Queen Mother surrounded by her grandchildren on her 60th birthday, a caption read: ‘#OTD in 1900, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother was born.

And while some royal enthusiasts remembered the royal, who passed away back in 2002 at the age of 101, many were taken how similar a young Prince Charles looked to his son Prince Harry.

‘Look at Prince Charles,’ wrote one fan, ‘he looks like Prince Harry in this photo!’
