Snaps of Prince Philip ‘rubbish’ claims that James Hewitt is Prince Harry’s dad

Claims that King Charles III is not the father of Prince Harry have been rubbished, after photos showing the likeness of the latter to his late grandfather, Prince Philip, have been circulated online.

Rumours swirled that James Hewitt is in fact Harry's father, following the revelation that Princess Diana had an affair with the former cavalry officer between 1986 and 1991.

The five-year romance occurred while Diana was still married to the now-King, with Hewitt giving the princess riding lessons while he was a part of the Household Cavalry.

Hewitt has denied the claims that he is the Duke's father.

Photos, which have demonstrated the resemblance between Harry and the late Duke of Edinburgh, have prompted many people to agree.

The snaps emerged when photographer Christopher Jackson shared a 1957 copy of the Paris Match Magazine, which had Philip on the cover in his naval uniform.

Taking to social media, he said: "I was reminded today of this incredible vintage @parismatch_magazine from 1957 I acquired a few years ago.

The post racked up hundreds of comments on social media, with one user tweeting: "For anyone saying Harry is not Charles’s son, he looks exactly like Philip here!"

Another wrote: "I thought it was Harry", while a third added: "This is the first time that I saw Prince Harry looks like his grandfather."

Following the post, more images have been shared on social media, highlighting the likeness between Philip and Harry through adolescence and adulthood.

Many people also denied the claims that Hewitt is Harry's father, as he was born in 1984, before the affair began.
