There has been another royal celebration after the Queen's eighth great-grandchild Archie Harrison turned one this week. In a newly-released video to recognise the milestone, royal fans were beside themselves over the similarities between the little tot and his dad Prince Harry when he was Archie's age. So in honour of this, we've taken a look back at other royals to see what they looked like when they were Archie's age.

Archie Harrison

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son looks the spitting image of his dad. The little tot celebrated his first birthday on 6 May and he looks delighted to have mum Meghan reading to him from his favourite book, Duck! Rabbit! The family reportedly celebrated with a 'smash cake' and a zoom call to friends and family.

Prince Louis 

Prince Louis celebrated his first birthday in April 2019. Kensington Palace unveiled a new set of official portraits to mark the milestone, and in keeping with family tradition, the Duchess of Cambridge took the adorable pictures herself. The stunning photos show little Louis playing in the garden of the family's Norfolk home, Anmer Hall. The Palace also released this statement, which read: "The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to share three new photographs of Prince Louis ahead of his first birthday tomorrow. The photographs were taken earlier this month by The Duchess at their home in Norfolk."

Mia Tindall, Zara Tindall's eldest daughter with retired rugby player Mike Tindall, has inherited her parents' love of outdoor activities, wrapping up warm in a purple fleece onesie while attending an equestrian event in 2015.

Prince Andrew

Born in 1960, Prince Andrew was the first royal born to a monarch since 1837, after his mother the Queen took to the throne in 1953. Attending the annual Trooping the Colour ceremony in 1961, Andrew made his public debut at 16 months old.

The youngest daughter of Peter and Autumn Phillips, Isla celebrated her seventh birthday on 29 May. When she was just one, the royal was often spotted out at events with her parents, looking cute here (left) in a woollen hat alongside sister Savannah.

Prince Harry

As a young boy, Harry was every bit the playful prince he is now. The red-haired tot was often seen playing with his older brother William, tinkling the ivories whenever he got the chance.

Prince Charles

He may have celebrated his 70th birthday in November, but Prince Charles was once a grumpy toddler like the rest of us!

Prince Edward

As a one year old, Prince Edward loved playing with his older brother Prince Andrew. With only four years between them, the pair were closer than they were with their older siblings, with Princess Anne being born 14 years before Edward.

Prince Philip

It may be hard to recognise this one year old as Prince Phillip, but back on a family holiday in Corfu in 1922, the Prince Consort sunned his white blonde hair in the warm weather.

The only daughter of the Queen, Princess Anne is seen here as an adorable baby spending some time with her grandparents, King George and the Queen Mother, as well as her three-year-old brother Charles.

Prince William

As an adorable baby, the young Prince William was close to both of his parents. With his blonde hair, however, the Prince was the spitting image of his mother, the late Princess Diana.

The youngest child of Prince Edward, James may be on the verge of his teenage years, but the royal was once a sporty tot enjoying a day out with his family.

A young Zara was clearly not impressed to spot the cameras in this picture, but we can recognise the royal anywhere from her shock of blonde hair!
