The Duchess of Sussex's cousin Shawn Johnson shared the new picture

Meghan Markle is identical to son Prince Archie as a baby in unseen photo

Infants frequently resemble their parents, and a recent image of the Duchess of Sussex as a baby highlights how much the royal mother and her four-year-old son Prince Archie resemble each other.

The adorable photo shows Meghan as a baby, dressed in a black hoodie and smiling at the camera.

With a quick glance, the mother and son appear to be identical because the former Suits actress shared Archie’s dark brown eyes and similar facial features.

Shawn Johnson, 43, who is cousin to Meghan and wife of Prince Harry, shared the picture with DailyMail.com. Johnson talked to the website about his early years spent with Meghan.

“She was always really looking after us and making sure that we’re all doing fine,” Shawn said, describing Meghan as “sweet” and “kind”.

Like his cousin Meghan, Shawn is an embroiderer and graphic designer who lives in California. However, he told the paper that he hasn’t seen Meghan in nearly twenty years. Shawn is the son of Joseph Johnson, Meghan’s maternal uncle.

Seeing a new picture of Meghan as a child is both adorable and unusual because she and Harry don’t often share childhood photos on social media or in public. The resemblance between her son and his well-known mother is astounding.

Prince Archie, who is sixth in line of succession to the British throne, was born on May 9, 2021, at Portland Hospital in London.

Though Archie’s birth name was Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, he was referred to as Prince Archie in official contexts after his grandfather, King Charles, became the heir to the British throne.

In addition, The Times recently revealed that, in an effort to unify the family under a single surname, Prince Harry and Meghan changed the names of their children to Archie and Lilibet Sussex.

During the 2023 Invictus Games, Prince Harry told the audience a unique story about his son: “When I ask my son Archie what he wants to be when he grows up, he tells me that he wants to be an astronaut some days and a pilot, obviously, other days. However, I remind him that your character is what really counts, regardless of what you want to be when you grow up.”
