Years ago when Prince Harry was just a wee boy following around his beautiful mother Princess Diana, ugly rumours swirled that Prince Harry was not the son of Princess Diana's husband, Prince Charles.

Instead they thought he was the son of Princess Diana's riding instructor, James Hewitt.

The rumour has shadowed Harry for years, especially after it emerged that Diana and James Hewitt had an affair for five years. Harry's hair was also a very similar shade of red to James Hewitt's.

But, after a a colourised photo surfaced online of Prince Harry's grandfather from the late 1950's, the resemblance between Prince Philip and his grandson is too big not to miss!

The photo of Philip is taken in his mid-30's - about the same age that Harry is now. The photo above, on the left, is of Harry at his wedding earlier this year to Meghan Markle.
