Ellen DeGeneres reveals Archie looks ‘just like Harry’ after meeting him for the first time

The talk-show host was lucky enough to spend the afternoon with the Sussexes during a recent trip to London.

While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have kept four-month-old Archie relatively out of the public eye since his birth, at home at Frogmore Cottage he's had plenty of visitors and one recent person lucky enough to meet the young royal was US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Talking about the visit in a preview for the new season of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the TV personality revealed she spent the afternoon with Harry and Meghan and got to feed Archie, who she adorably revealed looks just like Harry!
The 61-year-old joked, "He weighs 15 pounds, which is, the exchange rate, is 17 dollars here!"
Adding, "He looks like Harry – and he had more hair than I did at the time."

Ellen also shared that her and her wife Portia de Rossi hope they can partner with the couple on some of their conservation efforts.
"Portia and I talked to them about all the conservation they are doing for wildlife.
"They are doing all this work in Botswana for elephants, and I love that, and they like what I'm doing for the gorillas in Rwanda so we're gonna all do something together," Ellen explains.
Ellen also spoke out in defence of the couple, doubling down on her tweet of support for the couple following the criticism for flying by private jet to two European holidays.
"Portia and I met Prince Harry and Meghan in England to talk about their work on wildlife conservation," Ellen tweeted at the time.
"They were the most down-to-earth, compassionate people. Imagine being attacked for everything you do, when all you're trying to do is make the world better."
In the new clip Ellen reiterated her tweet saying: "I see them get attacked and it's not fair. They are just two of the most down-to-earth compassionate people, they're doing so much good for the world."

This newest revelation about Archie follows a previous report by People, who revealed a close source saying Archie had inherited his father's most distinguishable feature – his red hair!
Talking to People, the inside source said Archie was reportedly a very "happy baby".
"He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He's really adorable," the source claims.
When Harry and Meghan first introduced Archie to the world on May 8th at St George's Hall in Windsor Castle they couple weren't sure who he took after more.
"We're still trying to figure that out," Meghan told the press.
"Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks.
"We're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over the next month really," added Harry.
"His looks are changing every single day so who knows."

In just two weeks' time the family-of-three will be embarking on a four-country tour of Southern Africa, visiting South Africa, Angola, Botswana and Malawi, and with it will be another opportunity to see Archie.
While it's not yet confirmed what engagement Archie will be making an appearance to, a palace representative says the couple are keen to have him involved in some way during their 10-day official tour.
In a post to the @sussexroyal Instagram account, the couple reveal the trip gets underway on September 23rd and will focus on community, grassroots leadership, women's and girl's rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment.
While Meghan will be based in South Africa working with local organisations to promote women and girl's health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership, Harry will be making visits to Malawi, Botswana and Angola where he will be launching a new conservation initiative and continuing in the footsteps of his late mother Princess Diana, joining Halo Trust in Angola who are working to rid the world of landmines.
