Archie Mountbatten-Windsor looked adorable in a hat that looked just like one worn by his father Prince Harry as the Sussexes arrived in South Africa this morning.  

The five-month-old royal was wrapped up in a navy baby grow and a cream bobble hat as he was carried down the airplane steps by his mother the Duchess of Sussex.

Eagle-eyed royal fans were quick to point out that Archie’s hat looked strikingly similar to one worn by Prince Harry as a baby. 

The then six-month-old Prince looked sweet in a head-to-toe knitted cream outfit as he was carried off the plane at Aberdeen airport by his mother Princess Diana in March 1985.

Archie was wrapped up in a navy padded baby grow and a sweet cream knitted bobble hat as he was carried down the airplane steps by his mother the Duchess of Sussex on their arrival in Cape Town today. The Sussexes are kicking off the first leg of their 10-day royal tour

The apparent tribute was praised by fans, who said it brought back ‘great memories’ of Prince Harry as a child. 

One wrote: ‘Love when they channel past looks!’ Another posted: ‘So alike in these pics!’ 

Noticing the similarities extended beyond their wardrobes, another royal watcher added: ‘Archie is 100% his father’. 

The Sussexes arrived 40 minutes late into Cape Town this morning after taking a British Airways overnight flight from London.

Eagle-eyed royal fans were quick to point out that Archie’s hat looked strikingly similar to one worn by Prince Harry as a baby – and others said they also looked alike physically 

While the couple opted to forgo a formal welcome, photos of their arrival have emerged – offering royal watchers their first glimpse of Archie on the tour. 

Beaming Meghan, 38, was pictured carrying four-month-old Archie, who sported an adorable bobble hat for the occasion. 

Harry, 34, yesterday said they ‘can’t wait’ to introduce their son to Africa. They added that the 10-day tour is likely to be ‘more lively’ then usual with baby Archie joining them for the first time.

The Sussexes are set to undertake their first official tour as a family of three, starting and ending their trip with engagements in impoverished townships in Cape Town and Johannesburg. 

In between Harry will visit Botswana, Angola and Malawi, leaving his wife and young son in Cape Town for five days as the small propeller plane he will be travelling isn’t child friendly. 

The family will be reunited in Johannesburg for the last leg on their trip.
