A still image of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s son, Archie, had social media users buzzing. The royal fans spotted a shocking resemblance between the child and its mother.


This month, Duchess Meghan, 39, and Prince Harry’s documentary with Oprah Winfrey, “The Me You Can’t See,” aired for the first time. In one of the clips, the royal couple’s child, Archie, 2, featured.

He appeared in a still playing on a swing on the AppleTV+ documentary. A tweet started making the rounds on social media when a resemblance was picked up between Archie and his mother.

The post featured Archie’s still, plus a close-up photo of Meghan. The image of the former “Suits” actress was taken when she was just a toddler, and it left fans in awe with someone writing:

"Yesss very much like Meghan... Handsome.”


Meghan’s original picture showed her smiling while standing on her half-sister, Samantha Markle’s lap. She and her son were the spitting images of each other and even had the same eyes as children, and another fan noted:

“I have always said that Archie looks like his mother from the 1st time we saw him at the photo call. He's a mini- Meghan with his curly and wavy hair.”


Little Archie was welcomed into the world on May 6, 2019, and recently celebrated his second birthday. His parents’ fans really thought he’d always looked like his mother from the get-go.

Besides fans seeing snippets of little Archie in the new documentary, they also got to see glimpses of Meghan.

In “The Me You Can’t See,” Harry spoke candidly about mental health issues and, once again, touched on his own upbringing. He explained that he’d stepped down from his senior royal role to protect his wife and child.


The trailer for Harry, 36, and Meghan’s documentary was released on May 17, 2021. Speaking about Archie in the series, the Duke of Sussex revealed that one of his son’s first words was “grandma.”

Harry explained that he made sure his mother’s memory lived on in his son by putting a photo of Princess Diana in Archie’s Montecito home nursery. Diana died in Paris in 1997 from a car crash.


The Duke shared how his son’s first words were “mama” and “papa,” followed by “grandma” for Grandma Diana. He said it was a sweet thing, but it made him sad because his mother should still be around.
