Prince Harry and Meghan's son was welcomed into the world on May 6, 2019. The young royal is about a week old, and it’s not hard for his parents to spot his personality.

During the Sussex’s first appearance as a family of three on May 8, the new mother shared some information on her son’s character.

She said:

“He has the sweetest temperament, and he is really calm.”

While we already have a clue to Archie’s temperament, we can’t help but wonder about his physical looks. One particular trait we are all eager to know is what eye color he has.

Since we haven’t seen a photo of the little lad with his eyes open, we have employed the help of science.

According to Bright Side, there is a gene guide that can help you find out about what physical traits a child can have from comparing those traits in their parents.

For Archie, his father has blue eyes while Meghan’s eyes are brown. According to the guide, grey or blue eye colors are classified as weak genes while dark-colored eyes are under strong genes.

When someone with blue eyes marries a person with dark eyes, as in the case of Prince Harry and Meghan, the child has a 50% chance of having blue eyes.

Hence, it is assumed that Archie will have either a brown or blue eye color. The site explains that a person’s physical character is a result of the displacement of several genes of their parents.

However, genes can sometimes skip generations, making a person inherit traits from grandparents or great-grandparents! Regardless of what genes baby Archie inherited, we’re confident he’ll be one heck of a fine young man!
