The first child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will one day likely inherit Sussex royalty. But, this early, he has certainly inherited one thing: his father's red-orange hair. 

A source intimated with People that Archie is starting to show some of his father's genes. Specifically, the source described that Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's baby has that familiar red-orange or auburn hair color much like his father. 

"He's a happy baby," the source revealed. "He has lovely, puffy little legs and tufts of reddish hair. He's really adorable,"  the informant claimed.

However, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are still not sure if Archie looks more like his dad than his mother. When the Sussex royals debuted their baby in public, Duchess Meghan told some reporters that they are still trying to figure out whom Archie took after.

"His looks are changing every single day, so who knows," Prince Harry said to the press the day after Archie's birth. "Everyone says babies change so much over two weeks. We're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really." 

Archie Harrison is the seventh-in-line to the British throne behind his father, cousins (Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte and Prince George), uncle (Prince William) and grandfather (Prince Charles). Archie's parents decided that he will not have any royal title, but the Act of Succession cites that Archie may be addressed as His Royal Highness when Prince Charles becomes the King of England. 

Once the young boy is of age, however, Archie may still choose not to have a royal title and not be called a prince. But he will inherit the title of Duke of Sussex as the male heir of Prince Harry's line.

"I think the couple [is] determined for Archie to have as normal a life as possible," royal expert Katie Nicholl said."My understanding is that at Frogmore, they have essentially built a fortress. One of their closest friends told me it was their oasis - their sanctuary where they're going to raise their child away from the spotlight."

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan recently went on a secret getaway to Ibiza, Spain with their son. They had an entourage with them and stayed mostly at the villa hence there have been no paparazzi photos of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their little boy.

In the fall, Archie will join his parents on a two-week trip to South Africa. It will be very first out of the country visit for the regular royal kid who may just be the carbon copy of his father.
