Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, the young children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have been captivating the public with their adorable red hair – a trait they appear to have inherited from their great-uncle, Charles Spencer. The siblings have been spotted with their vibrant ‘Spencer’ red hair on multiple occasions, drawing comparisons to their great-uncle who is known for his distinctive red locks.

The Spencer family has a long history of sporting red hair, with Prince Harry himself also carrying the fiery gene. It seems that the trait has been passed down to the next generation, with Archie and Lilibet proudly displaying their ginger locks.

Charles Spencer, the 9th Earl Spencer, is the younger brother of Princess Diana and the uncle of Prince Harry. He is well-known for his striking red hair, which has become somewhat of a trademark for him. Now, it seems that the Spencer red hair runs strong in the younger generation of the family as well.

Fans of the royal family have been quick to point out the resemblance between Archie, Lilibet, and their great-uncle Charles. The children’s red hair has been a topic of conversation on social media, with many commenting on how adorable they look with their ginger locks.

It is clear that Archie and Lilibet have inherited not just their red hair, but also their great-uncle’s charm and charisma. The young siblings have captured the hearts of the public with their sweet smiles and playful antics, and their vibrant hair only adds to their appeal.

As they continue to grow and develop their own personalities, it will be interesting to see how Archie and Lilibet’s Spencer red hair becomes a distinctive feature of their identities. For now, fans of the royal family can’t get enough of these two adorable siblings and their striking resemblance to their great-uncle Charles Spencer.

Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet have both inherited beautiful red hair and on Thursday, Prince Harry’s uncle, Charles Spencer, shared a photo that showed the roots of their flame-hued locks. 

Taking to his Instagram account, the ninth Earl Spencer shared a family photo of himself taken 50 years ago alongside his elder sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale, and their close family friend James. In the image, both Charles and Sarah’s flame-red locks couldn’t go unnoticed.

Captioning the post, Charles penned: “A photograph (taken by my father) from 50 years ago, in the gardens of Park House, in Norfolk, which was “home” till I was 11 (and still is, to me, in many ways). My sister Sarah stands behind me, and family friend James is cross legged in front: I ended up being godfather to his son, in fact, 20 years later. 

“Memories of such a happy time and place – those Norfolk childhood years were golden. #Norfolk #sister #summer #1973 #childhoodhome #summerholidays #1970s#sandringham #averyprivateschool @gallerybooks @wmcollinsbooks.”

Prince Harry has previously spoken about his little ones having “very strong” Spencer genes in a candid interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

“The Spencer gene is very, very strong. I actually really, genuinely thought at the beginning of my relationship [with Meghan] that should this go the distance and we have kids that there’s no way the ginger gene will stand up to my wife’s genes, but I was wrong!”

In his Netflix series, Harry & Meghan, which aired last year, Prince Harry also shared just how much his little girl reminds him of his mother, Princess Diana, and her side of the family. 

He said in the final episode: “I think at the moment I see a lot of my wife in Archie and a lot of my mum in Lilibet. She’s very Spencer-like. She’s got the same blue eyes.”
