Is Prince Harry moonlighting as quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles?

Prince Harry of Wales made big headlines this week after scoring three touchdowns and throwing for 227 yards against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. No… wait. Sorry, that was Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, the guy who just recently announced his engagement to Meghan Markle. Hold on. Sorry, that last bit was about Prince Harry. But, it’s easy to understand the confusion once you see these two scruffy-faced gingers side by side.


As The Daily Dot reported earlier this week, the similarities between the two men are so distinct that some people on Twitter are starting to question whether they’re actually one and the same. Upon closer inspection, there are a few incontrovertible clues that could lead you to this mind-blowing conclusion: First, they both have red hair. Second, they’ve never been seen in the same room together. And third… they both have red hair?

The rumor spread so quickly that even the Eagles social media manager started getting a little confused.


Though it’s unlikely the 33-year-old prince and the 24-year-old footballer are actually the same person, the two lookalikes could, at the very least, entangle themselves in a Prince And The Pauper-type scheme if they were so inclined. Then again, after seeing this photo of Princess Diana sporting an Eagles letterman back in the day, one can’t help but wonder.
