Prince Harry looks exactly like his grandad Philip did in his 30s, magazine from 1957 reveals

PRINCE Harry looks exactly like his granddad Philip did aged 36, a magazine cover from 1957 has revealed. 

A front cover of Paris Match magazine shows the Duke of Edinburgh decked out in the Tropical Dress of the Blues and Royals – bearing a striking resemblance to his grandson.

On the cover, Prince Philip looks almost identical to a photo of Harry aged 34, wearing a similar uniform on Anzac Day memorial service in Australia in 2018. 

Getty’s royal photographer Chris Jackson first spotted the similarity and shared the two snaps side-by-side on Instagram two years ago. 

The photo of Prince Philip is thought to have been colourised from a black and white negative – but the Duke’s complexion, eye colour and facial hair is almost identical to Harry’s. 

The magazine cover was published on the same year that Philip was granted the style and title of a Prince by the Queen. 

Meanwhile, tributes have poured in after Prince Philip died aged 99 on Friday. 

The Queen, 94, shared a photo of Philip in a heartfelt tribute to her "strength and guide".

Prince Harry also made the 5,400-mile journey back to the UK yesterday to ensure he could attend his granddad’s funeral, which will take place on Saturday. 


The Duke of Sussex was seen getting off a British Airways flight from Los Angeles that arrived at Heathrow at 1.15pm.

Sources close to the couple said Meghan, 39, wanted to join her husband but was advised against travelling by her doctor as she is pregnant with their second child.

It is the first time that Harry has been in the UK since last March – and his first visit since the Sussexes’ explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey last month. 

But the Royal Family has ordered a truce over the contents of his Oprah interview to focus on honouring Prince Philip.

The Queen has declared a two-week royal mourning period.

An insider said: “Family conversations now will be on the passing of Prince Philip — and nothing else.

“The Queen has declared royal mourning for two weeks so it’s quite clear that is the focus."
