Prince Harry was reminded that he’s not the only famous ginger around! During a meeting with students from the Francis Holland School in Regent’s Park, during Monday’s Commonwealth Service, one student left the Prince in stitches after pointing out that he looks like none other than the Shape of You singer, Ed Sheeran. “Are you the real Prince Harry?” Tiya Thornton, 12 asked after she was greeted by the 32-year-old. Meghan Markle’s beau, who found the comment humorous replied, "Yes, the other one is Ed Sheeran.” Harry remained in good spirits as he walked into the service with The Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr. John Hill.

Harry accompanied his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth to the service held in her honor to celebrate her lifetime achievement to the Commonwealth. The 90-year-old monarch, who beamed in a yellow dress and hat combo, was joined by her husband Prince Philip, son Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and her other sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. Monday’s annual Commonwealth Day service led with the theme 'A Peace-building Commonwealth” which reaffirmed the Commonwealth Charter principle that "international peace and security, sustainable economic growth and development and the rule of law are essential to the progress and prosperity of all." Harry and his family were joined by other notable attendees including Prime Minister Theresa May, Annie Lennox, Olympian Jessica Ennis-Hill and fellow red head, Geri Halliwell and her daughter Bluebell.

The service wasn’t the first time the Prince has been mistaken for his cousin Princess Eugenie’s good friend. Last year Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie shared the hilarious moment she mistook the two during a party hosted by Suki Waterhouse. "I'd had a drink or drinks," the 26-year-old actress told The Sun. "I thought I was hanging out with Ed Sheeran. I was thinking 'Ed's a really cool guy. I'm going to take some pictures with him.'" She continued about the experience telling Jimmy Fallon, "When I saw him in those glasses, I was like, 'Oh my god, I didn't know Ed Sheeran was at the party!'"
