In the last several weeks, two prominent redheads have dominated headlines across the world — and Twitter has taken notice.
In fact, people are talking about Eagles QB Carson Wentz and Britain’s Prince Harry so much that they can’t seem to keep the two straight. So on Monday, after the Eagles’ 10th win and Prince Harry’s bombshell engagement, a Twitter deluge was born.
It all started when Twitter user “History Of Sports” pointed out the duo’s likeness.

Which sent the internet spiraling down into the familiar rabbit hole of speculation.
First, users suggested that the pair might be brothers.

Same hair, same parent, one user remarked.

But the debate slowly evolved/devolved into a conspiracy theory that the two men might actually be the same person.

Nina Mandell’s very scientific poll got a lot of attention and soon Wentz’s teammates were chiming in.

NFL Game Day even got in on the action.

There’s only one way to settle this: Prince Harry’s gotta attend Super Bowl LII to watch the Eagles if they make it, and Carson has to attend Prince Harry’s wedding this spring. Just to prove they’re two different people. It’s only fair.
