Prince Harry is the real son of Prince Charles, but some royal fans are still linking him with Princess Diana’s former lover, James Hewitt.
On Twitter, some royal fans that saw a photo of Archie said that he looks like Hewitt. Others trolled the post by saying that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s firstborn looks like his “grandfather” Hewitt.
Some fans also said that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex deliberately covered Archie’s hair with a bonnet because they didn’t want the public to see his ginger hair. Prince Harry’s hair is reddish, and Hewitt’s hair is also of a similar color.
But when Princess Diana was still alive, she used to call Prince Harry “my little Spencer” because the new dad’s hair resembled his Spencer side of the family.
After Markle gave birth to Archie, some royal fans sent Hewitt their congratulations via Twitter. Instead of congratulating Archie’s real grandfather, Prince Charles, online trolls made fun of the situation and once again linked Prince Harry to Hewitt.
In the past, Hewitt has already denied that he’s the father of Prince Harry. During an appearance on “Sunday Night,” Hewitt was asked point blank if he’s the father of Prince Harry, and he said he’s not.
Interviewer Melissa Doyle asked Hewitt why he thinks the rumors have not died down even after the Princess of Wales’ death.
“Sells papers. It’s worse for him, probably, poor chap,” he said.
Princess Diana and Hewitt’s romance blossomed into secret rendezvous, home-cooked dinners, and laughter. However, their relationship didn’t last very long.
“It’s a gradual period and then, you know, suddenly you can’t get enough of each other or see each other as much as you want,” he said.
Princess Diana was married to Prince Charles from 1981 to 1996. They announced their separation in 1992 following Queen Elizabeth II’s advice. Princess Diana passed away on Aug. 31, 1997, following a fatal car crash in Paris.
