If you’ve ever wondered where Prince Harry got his red hair from, look no further than his grandfather.

A recently unearthed magazine cover featuring Prince Philip during his sailor days shows an uncanny resemblance to another ginger: his grandson, Prince Harry.

The photo from the 1957 issue of Paris Match magazine shows Philip, who is consort to Queen Elizabeth, dressed in his Royal Navy uniform, sporting a full red beard nearly identical to the one Prince Harry has today. A naval cap covers his head, but Philip's blue eyes and smile appear to be mirror images of his grandson's.

Like his grandfather, Prince Harry also is a military veteran. The 32-year-old royal served two tours in Afghanistan during his 10 years in the British Army before retiring last year to focus more time on his charity work, particularly with injured service members.

From his early days as a Greek prince to the golden years of his marriage to Queen Elizabeth, take a look back at the Duke of Edinburgh’s extraordinary life.

Prince Harry seems to be the source of a lot of double takes recently. Last week, he shared a sweet moment with a fellow redhead during a London ceremony honoring fallen police officers.
