Prince Harry and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet looks identical to Princess Eugenie as a baby

The similarities between the children of Prince Harry and Meghan, Archie, and Lilibet, as well as Princess Eugenie’s son, August Brooksbank, demonstrate the resemblance between different generations of the royal family.

But there are other family similarities as well. The similarity between Princess Eugenie’s infant self and one-year-old Lilibet has also been noted by royal observers.

When Meghan and Harry shared a cute photo of their daughter to celebrate her first birthday in June of last year, people started noticing the similarities.

Lilibet is pictured in a blue dress with a floral headband in her auburn hair in the adorable photo, which was taken in the garden of the Sussexes’ Windsor residence, Frogmore Cottage. The child also shares the same red hair as Eugenie, a cousin of her father Harry, and they look remarkably alike at the same age.

Since they stepped back from their royal duties, the Princess has traveled to the US to visit the Sussexes because she and Harry have a close bond that dates back to their early years.

The Netflix documentary series about Harry and Meghan included scenes of Eugenie playing with Archie on the beach and watching the Super Bowl with the Duke.

Eugenie was among the first members of the royal family to learn about Harry’s romance with American actress Meghan Markle, as described in his book Spare.

The kids of Harry and Eugenie are also close in age; Lilibet was born four months before three-year-old Archie and August.
