Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor made an unscheduled appearance during the royal tour of South Africa, meeting Archbishop Desmond Tutu on Wednesday.

Fans were quick to take to social media to note the resemblance between father and son, with some commenting that the child is Harry’s “twin.”

The youngest British royal landed in Cape Town with his parents on Monday, but had yet to join them for their official royal engagements.

The Sussex Royal Instagram account shared footage of the visit. Carried in his mother’s arms, Archie appeared happy, smiling and laughing. He was wearing a pair of H&M baby blue overalls with a white long-sleeved top, while Meghan wore a cap-sleeved dress by Club Monaco (that’s already sold out!).

Social media is going wild for the appearance, with people calling Archie “the cutest” and “adorable.”

The Sussex Royal Instagram account also shared a cute picture of Tutu kissing little Archie on the forehead.

Unsurprisingly, there was much talk about the child during the engagement.

Tutu’s daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe, dubbed the infant a “ladies' man,” according to Sky News.

Talking to news outlets, Harry called Archie —whom he appears to have nicknamed “Arch” — “an old soul,” according to a tweet from royal correspondent Emily Nash.

Little Archie was nowhere to be seen for the first two days of the tour, with Meghan telling 81-year-old Somaya Ebrahim, a former District Six resident, “he’s sleeping,” according to People.

However, he was honored with a South African name, Ntsika – pronounced “in-Tsee-kah” – during the duke and duchess’s engagement at the South African organization Justice Desk on Monday.
