Before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex embark on their “first official tour as a family” with their son Archie later this year, the infant had to get a passport photo taken. Us Magazine’s July 15 print issue sheds some insight on the youngest royal’s photo shoot and reveals who he best resembles.
In the article, which touches on the family’s preparations to tour South Africa this fall, it is revealed that Archie, now 2 months old, is working to secure his British passport. “He’s getting his first British passport this summer,” a source said.
While the tot may not have secured his official document just yet, an insider did share some scoop on his passport shots. According to the source, Archie takes after mom, Duchess Meghan Markle.
“He looks exactly like Meghan in his photo,” shared a source. “He was as good as gold when he had it taken.”
“Archie’s absolutely gorgeous and a really good baby,” an insider added of the young royal’s appearance.

A passport isn’t the only thing Archie needs before the trip. The magazine reports that Archie was “set to have his first vaccinations” in June, but due to the inoculations needed to travel around Africa “it’s likely that Archie will only be present on certain safer parts of the trip.”
Ultimately, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are focused on keeping their son “safe and happy” throughout the royal tour.
“Africa is an extremely important continent for Harry and Meghan,” an insider said. “It’s not only where Harry was able to spend time away from the public eye growing up…but it’s also where their love grew. Going back there will be so special for them now that they’re a family.”
