Prince Philip and Prince Harry Were Basically Twins

How did we never notice this before?

We have a very important question for you: Do you recognize this man?

If your response is "Of course, Prince Harry..." you're close, but no cigar. It's actually his grandfather, Prince Philip. Shocking, right?


If you, too, are wondering why you've never noticed this striking resemblance, we're chalking it up to the fact that Prince Philip was usually clean shaven. Honestly, we never even realized he had a red beard until Chris Jackson resurfaced this picture from 1957 on Instagram. Meanwhile, Harry regularly rocks facial hair.


Jackson asked his followers whom they thought was in the photo, and let's just say confusion ensued. Our favorite theory: Someone asked if it was Harry doing "a spot of time travel." If only. But we have to admit, after discovering this similarity, it's impossible not to notice others. Is it just us, or do you think their smiles looked alike too?


And we can't forget about the fact that they've both been famous for their sense of humor. In fact, the Queen was warned not to marry Prince Philip because of his tendency to crack jokes. Clearly, these advisors were wrong.
