Giggling and smiling, the first thing royal fans noticed about Archie Harrison is that he looks EXACTLY like his dad –right down to the tuffs of red hair on his little head. Being a new parent is exhausting, but despite the other drama they’re dealing with as modern royals –Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex are absolutely delighted with their little one.
