Throughout the years, there have been speculations as to who Prince Harry’s biological dad really is. Even though it’s 100 percent guaranteed that he’s the son of King Charles and Princess Diana, there are still ongoing claims that he might be related to his mom’s former lover, James Hewitt.

According to some royal fans, the resemblance between Prince Harry and Hewitt is uncanny. But even Hewitt himself previously explained why he couldn’t possibly be related to the Duke of Sussex.

“There really is no possibility whatsoever that I am Harry’s father. I can absolutely assure you that I am not. I can understand the interest but Harry was already walking by the time my relationship with Diana began,” Hewitt said years ago (via The Things).

Prince Harry’s Alleged Biological Dad James Hewitt Talks About Their Similarities

During his 2012 interview, Hewitt acknowledged why some people keep on insisting that he’s related to Prince Harry. But he stressed that it’s just plain coincidence that they are both redheads.

“Admittedly the red hair is similar to mine and people say we look alike. I have never encouraged these comparisons and although I was with Diana for a long time I must state once and for all that I’m not Harry’s father. When I met Diana, he was already a toddler,” he said.

Hewitt also fondly said that Prince Harry is much more good-looking compared to him.

But despite his denial in 2012, speculations regarding Prince Harry’s paternity once again surfaced last month. Following the queen’s death, a source told Radar Online that Prince Harry’s resemblance to Hewitt became more apparent, especially now that he’s much older.

“As Harry was growing up, his likeness to Hewitt became more and more apparent. From the reddish-brown hair to the blue eyes, body language and similarities in the build are uncanny,” the source said.

James Hewitt Only Met Prince Harry When He Was About 2 Years Old

Royal author Nicholas Davies also alleged that Hewitt hung out with Princess Diana inside the palace 12 months before Prince Harry was born. But his accounts were different from what Hewitt said.

Prince Harry’s alleged dad stressed that he met Princess Diana years after Prince Harry was born. Hewitt also said that it wasn’t his plan to fall in love with her.

“It was never her intention to fall in love with me, and it was certainly not my intention to fall in love with Diana, but it happened because of the circumstances throwing us together. It’s very difficult to say how physical she wanted our relationship to become. And I’m not going to suggest one way or the other whose fault it was, it developed, and it was mutual,” he said.

Over time, Hewitt and Princess Diana’s relationship just fizzled out, and they decided to go their separate ways.
