Is Prince Harry actually Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz? The internet says yes

Even the Eagles can’t tell them apart.

Prince Harry is fifth (and soon will be sixth) in line to take over the British monarchy. But even though he’ll probably never be England’s king, he announced his engagement to Meghan Markle on Monday. Carson Wentz is the quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles, and he’s thrown the most touchdowns in the NFL this season while leading his team to the top of NFC conference.

So, both men are having productive years.

And perhaps that’s because, as Twitter kept pointing out on Monday, they might as well be the same person. Because they look like they’re the same person.

Even the Eagles social media team got in on the fun.

(Hint: That’s not really Carson Wentz. It’s actually Prince Harry. Just kidding, they’re both the same person, remember?)

And this came from the Twitter account of Torrey Smith, an Eagles receiver who regularly catches passes either from Wentz or the prince.

But the overwhelming evidence has actually been known about for years. Because Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, wore the Eagles colors when she was out and about in the 1990s.

Could it be??
