Seeing double! Prince Harry must have been surprised recently, as he came across a young boy who looked just like a little version of himself.
On Thursday, May 30, the 34-year-old attended the opening match of the ICC Cricket World Cup at the Oval in London, and had quite the good time. Before the big game between England and South Africa, the Duke of Sussex had the pleasure of meeting a group of eager kids who had been selected as Anthem Children from the Cricket World Cup youth engagement program – and one boy could definitely be a mini-me of the royal.
While all of the kids wore blue baseball caps and matching tees, “Little Harry” stood out with his freckles and red hair.
The Sussex Instagram also shared a photo of Mini-Harry, perhaps knowing full well that he looked just like Prince William‘s brother. “That one little red head looks like a younger Harry. Cute little man,” one fan said in the comments section.
Harry, who isn’t taking paternity leave after his first child with Meghan Markle arrived on May 6, also took some time to give a lovely speech about the history of the tournament. “The first ever Cricket World Cup took place in England in 1975, and I am delighted that the UK will once again play host to this wonderful global event featuring 10 incredible teams, who thanks to the UK’s diversity will feel like they are playing to a home crowd at every game,” he said. “Cities will come alive across the next six weeks as World Cup fever sweeps the nation once more.”
The new dad added, “Good luck to all the teams and thank you to everyone who has played a part in making this tournament happen. Trust me, you won’t want to miss any of it. I am now honored to declare the men’s World Cup of 2019 open.”
The ICC Cricket World Cup runs from May 30 until July 14 — this is one event we can’t wait for Harry and his baby boy Archie to enjoy together one day!
