From the minute young Archie was born, the world was curious which of his parents’ features he would inherit. Now, we’re learning Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie has red hair like his dad, and wow, we’re going to need to see some pictures.
With the family recently returning from a dreamy vacation in Ibiza, they’re now in preparations for their first family tour, during which they’ll be showing off Archie to the world. The latest issue of People magazine reveals that Archie is already sprouting a recognizably royal feature: Prince Harry’s flaming red hair. According to an unnamed source: “He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He’s really adorable.” We don’t doubt it!
Meghan and Harry have shown themselves to be incredibly modern parents who value their child’s privacy, keeping both his birth and his christening private events, despite the public’s protests. They are of course aware of the public’s interest in him, so they’ve shown off the baby during select royal photo opportunities, and even brought him to Prince William’s charity polo match last month, where Archie bonded with doting cousins Prince George and Princess Charlotte. He also got in a little bonding time with their little brother Prince Louis.

The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the Commonwealth and beyond. This will be their first official tour as a family!
It’s no surprise that Archie would get his dad’s hair, though it’s been a question on everyone’s minds since the couple announced his arrival. Photos of the baby haven’t shown him with hair yet, but we hope it’s only a matter of time before we get to see him in all his red-haired glory.
