To celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 94th birthday, the official royal family Instagram account (@theroyalfamily) shared a series of adorable throwback pictures of Her Majesty as a baby, toddler and young child. Prince William and Kate Middleton, and Prince Charles, also posted sweet tributes to their matriarch too.

Upon further examination, we couldn't help but notice that one of the photographs offered up from the royal archives was just a tad familiar. In the black and white shot of the Queen looking into the distance wearing a bonnet as a young infant, there's definitely a hint of one of her royal family members... none other than her grandson, Prince Harry (who has recently stepped away from the spotlight and his role as a senior royal).

Yep, the same Harry who has been spotted out doing food deliveries in LA, where he and wife Meghan Markle, now live, in an effort to help vulnerable locals who are struggling to obtain food during the coronavirus crisis.

Obviously we had to put the two pictures side by side to do a truly thorough analysis and we think the family resemblance here is super clear. Both the Queen and Harry have a similar mouth and nose here for sure, plus their 'guys, I'm so over all of you' expressions. How cute!

This isn't the first time that striking resemblances have been spotted in childhood photos of royals – when Princess Diana's niece, Lady Kitty Spencer, shared an old picture of her horse-riding as a child the comments section was flooded with comparisons between her and little Princess Charlotte.

Now that's what you call a strong gene pool.
