Substitute a pacifier for the cigar and the similarity is uncanny!

Or Prince Harry was having a laugh by saying his nephew, Prince Georgewho at 11 months is in that fabulous adorable-baby/like-a-little-old-man stage of cuteness that so many tots pass through—resembled former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Harry apparently made the comparison during a radio interview in Santiago, Chile, where he attended a party thrown in honor Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday.

"I asked what George was like," recalled Infinita radio host Virginia Araya. "He said, 'He's growing up, he has big, chubby cheeks. He looks like a young Winston Churchill?'"

Invoking the British Bull Dog was probably a safer move than comparing Kate Middleton and Prince William's firstborn son to storied English footballer Sir Bobby Charlton or anyone who would bring soccer to mind—Chile would go on to lose a heartbreaking knockout match to Brazil later that day.

Harry's Saturday schedule was timed just so for him to be able to watch the match, and he told the Chileans he had a "diplomatic challenge" ahead of him as to who to route for. He admitted soccer was "a very sore subject at home" following England's failure to advance past the group round.

Also over the weekend, the 29-year-old royal visited with firemen in Valparaiso, who had battled intense forest fires in the area back in April, and met with members of Techo (Spanish for roof), a youth-run nonprofit that aims to help pull people out of poverty.
