Prince Harry:

Who's My Daddy?!

6/14/2007 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For years, rumors have swirled questioning the paternity of Great Britain's Prince Harry. Red hair say what?

0614_prince_harry_2-1
While reports have always suggested that Diana's flame-haired ex-lover, James Hewitt (left), may be the late Princess' real baby daddy, author Christopher Anderson claims in his new book "After Diana," that now Harry (center) himself wants to take a DNA test to put the rumors to rest. Over the Queen's dead body!

Although Harry and Hewitt both share a carrottop likeness, it should be noted that Diana's brother, Earl Spencer (right), is also a redhead. So there is some red in Diana's blue blood!

Should Harry decide to go ahead and take a DNA test against the Queen's wishes, he might want to stay out of Parisian tunnels.

TMZ - An apology is in order from you! The tunnel comment is rude, unnecessary, and completely disrespectful. You should be ashamed of yourselves. NEW LOW...

If you look at photos of his maternal grandfather, you will see the family resemblance.

That tunnel comment was asinine.

Yes brown eyes are dominant but not excusive. Brown eyed people who have one blue eyed parent carry one gene for brown eyes and one for blue eyes. Blue eyes are recessive therefore blueeyed people can only pass on a gene for blue eyes. NOW if two blue eyed people have abrown eyed kid then they've made history or somebody's in trouble!

Sonya and Jules - are you both slow? Sonya - yes, Harry could have blue eyes even if his father had dark eyes. In fact, he could have blue eyes even if both parents have dark eyes (so long as they both have the recessive gene for blue eyes).

Jules - No, they weren't saying that Harry's uncle is his father...they're saying that the gene for red hair runs in the Spencer family!

Sheesh. Gotta make things real clear for some of you.

The fact Harry does have a strong, family resemblance to Diana's brother is really just confirmation Diana's got strong genes and Harry carries alot of DNA from her side of the family. One poster commented on brown eyes being dominante...true...but not always the way it turns out. My husband is 1/2 Syrian and 1/2 Irish (yup, what a combo!). He has olive skin, VERY black hair, and his dad's VERY light blue eyes!

People just seem to need to cause trouble for others, especially royals/politicians and movie/tv stars.

I think Prince Harry looks like his mother and his father. I think he may have gotten the red hair from his mother's side of the family. His uncle has red hair.

Harry is clearly Diana and Charles' kid.

Her brother is a redhead and he has Charles' jugears!

Ok, just because one child has red hair and the other doesn't that doesn't mean he's not full blood. I am British. Out of 4 of us, one has reddish hair, and when she spawned, one of HER two kids have red hair. All the others have brown and blonde!! She got it from our GRANDMOTHER. It's in the British blood you idiot! it could have been passed down from anyone on Charles or Diana's sides!... Leave this kid alone for God's sake!!

He looks like Prince Charles, and he DOES have those ears LOL Leave the poor guy alone. As a widow raising a daughter without her father, I know his heartache at losing a parent at a young age. He's been through more than enough.

As far as the blue eyes, two brown eyed people can have a blue eyed child, because it is a recessive gene. Two blue eyed people can only have a blue eyed child because all they have is the blue eyed gene.

It would be genetically possible (eye color) and I think he looks more like his uncle.

From side pro file Harry favors James, but full on , looks more like Charles-wouldn't be the first royal with a murky background, tho might be the last! He is a good Brit, anyway and God Bless!

He may be red-headed, but he is the spitting image of his father, Prince Charles. I think he looks just like him. Now, William looks like his mother.
