In a photo shared to the Instagram account of Getty Images Royal Photographer Chris Jackson on Tuesday, fans could not help but notice a striking similarity between an old photo of Prince Philip on the 1957 cover of Paris Match magazine and how his grandson Prince Harry looks today.

Perceived to be around 36-years-old at the time, Prince Philip features bright blue eyes, a handsome smile and a red beard similar to that of Prince Harry, who is 32-years-old. While the two look very different today, they nonetheless have followed similar career paths.
