As the world waited in anticipation for the arrival of the royal baby this year, much talk turned to who the baby would take after – more specifically, would the baby inherit Prince Harry’s red hair?

Since Archie’s birth in May, we’ve had a few glimpses of the adorable royal, but as of yet it had been a bit too early to tell who the little one took after, however according to a source who spoke to People, we may finally have a clue.

Speaking to the publication the inside source revealed Archie’s a “happy baby”.

“He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He’s really adorable.”

When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced Archie to the world two days after his birth they were unsure which of them he took after more.

“We’re still trying to figure that out,” Meghan told the press at St George’s Hall in Windsor Castle.

“Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks.

“We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really,” added Harry.

“His looks are changing every single day so who knows.”

Indeed, babies’ features do change incredibly quickly during their first years, so while Archie may reportedly have red hair now, there’s a high chance his hair colour will change over time – and we sure can’t wait to follow the cute royal’s evolution.

The last time Archie was spotted was when he made a surprise appearance in the arms of his mother at a charity polo match in July, to cheer on his father and uncle Prince William.

The Sussexes were also joined by the entire Cambridge family and marked the first time the Cambridge and Sussex cousins have been seen in public together.

Earlier this week it was revealed Archie also undertook his very first overseas trip, with the family-of-three reportedly travelling to the Spanish island of Ibiza earlier this month to celebrate Meghan’s 38th birthday.

According to Hello! the family flew into Ibiza on a private jet for their six-day holiday, where they were said to have stayed in a secluded villa, far from prying eyes.

Now back in the UK, the family are due for another overseas trip very soon, with the announcement in late June that the Sussexes would be travelling to southern Africa to embark on a royal tour, which will see them visit South Africa, with Harry additionally visiting the countries of Angola, Malawi and Botswana.

Botswana in particular holds a very close place in the hearts of Harry and Meghan, who have holidayed there together multiple times, including a trip just weeks after they met, where Harry revealed they camped out under the stars.

How romantic!
