Prince Harry and Prince William can be seen looking seriously similar to their children in an unearthed image taken of them as little boys.  

Having been in the royal spotlight since they were born, there are no shortage of adorable childhood photographs of Prince William and Prince Harry. 

The Queen's grandsons, who are two of Her Majesty's eight beloved grandchildren, are now grown up and fathers to their own sweet broods—and the family likeness between Harry and William and their little ones is often made clear when snaps of the royal children are released.

Royal fans often point out just how much William and Kate Middleton's Cambridge children are the spitting image of their dad, while Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie causes a stir with his likeness to the Duke of Sussex every time a new photo is shared.

And in an unearthed photograph of Prince William and Prince Harry, taken when they were just three and five, the brothers bear a serious resemblance to Archie and Princess Charlotte particularly.

In the sweet image, the young Princes can be seen giving a royal salute while sitting on a police motorbike during a visit to the police force in Windsor.

While Archie, who will be three in May, and Princess Charlotte, six, often look just like their moms, Meghan and Kate, the royal tots are the spitting image of their dads as children, if this nostalgic picture is anything go by.

Even Prince William himself once mistook a photo of him as a child for a snap of little Charlotte in a sweet moment during a royal visit in January 2020. 

During a royal visit to Bradford, William and Kate paid a visit to Khidmat community center and were treated to a lavish array of cakes, decorated with Cambridge family photos.

Upon spotting an old snapshot of him on the cake, the future King, who lives at Kensington Palace with Kate, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, exclaimed in disbelief, asking, "Is that me? That looks just like Charlotte. Oh my goodness!"
