Archie Harrison looks just like Prince Harry and Prince William as he wears overalls to meet Desmond Tutu

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor made his first-ever royal tour appearance on Sept. 25 in true royal fashion. Following a trend set by his late grandmother Princess Diana, the four-month-old donned blue and white striped short overalls to meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka at the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation in Cape Town. His adorable little outfit is available from H&M for around $30.

It’s so sweet to see the little boy following a tradition set by his father and uncle! Prince William was the first to be snapped in relaxed overalls back in 1983 while playing soccer in Kensington Palace. Prince Harry followed suit in 1985, during a hangout with his mom. Since then, Archie's cousins Prince George, 6, and one-year-old Prince Louis have donned overalls by Spanish brand Neck & Neck .

This event was a first for Archie, who was all smiles while sitting on his mom’s lap as his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, learned about how the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation empowers South African youth.

At one point during their conversation, Harry remarked that their son seemed used to the cameras already, and Meghan told Desmond that Archie was “an old soul.” Desmond’s daughter Thandeka jokingly said, “You like the ladies. He’s going to be a ladies’ man.”

Harry has a long friendship with the archbishop, having presented Desmond with his Order of the Companions of Honour from the Queen in 2015 when he was last in South Africa. The archbishop received in recognition of his services to UK communities and international peace and reconciliation.

After posing for pictures, the group set off to enjoy a private tea together.
