But the eight-week-old’s resemblance to dad Prince Harry, 34, in one of the family portraits has left well-wishers delighted.
They claim the little boy is already showing signs of having inherited his father’s famous red hair in one of two images released yesterday to mark his baptism in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.
Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland is also present, and the first-time grandmother stands next to Princess Diana’s sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale.
However, all eyes were on the star of the show, Archie, and royal fans were thrilled by the little boy’s emerging locks.
One person wrote: “Baby Archie has his dad’s red hair.”

Another commented: “Little Archie looks like he’s got red hair like his daddy!!!”
However, others noted how they saw the Duchess, 37, in his looks too, in the photos taken by fashion photographer Chris Allerton.
A third shared: “Archie has red hair but he is completely Meghan.”
And a fourth added: “Archie is a nice blend of both parents. It appears he has the Spencer red hair.”

The new royal parents - who announced earlier this week they would be keeping details of their son’s christening private - shared the image, along with another black and white one taken in the Rose Garden, to their Instagram.
They captioned the post: “This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
”The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son.
“They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment.
”Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie.”
The pictures have garnered more than two million ‘likes’ to date.
