Son Archie is just as cheeky as his dad
Prince Harry is the proud father of two children. Son Archie in particular seems to take after his dad and inherited his cheeky side, as the Duke of Sussex reveals in an interview.
Prince Harry, 37, rarely gives private insights into his life in the United States as a father of two in conversation with journalist Hoda Kotb, 57, on the “Today Show”. His pride is son Archie, who will be three in May, and ten-month-old Lilibet. It’s easy to see that when he talks to Duchess Meghan, 40, about his two offspring.
Prince Harry: This is what a typical Wednesday in his life looks like
When the presenter asked the Duke of Sussex what a typical Wednesday looked like for him as part of the “Invictus Games” he created in The Hague, he didn’t have to think twice. “He revolves around the children as much as possible,” he replied.
“All this working from home is not what you imagine it to be, especially after COVID, because it’s really tough,” says the 37-year-old. “But when you’re in the same place with your kids, it’s really hard to separate work from kids because they kind of overlap.”

All working parents can imagine what Prince Harry is alluding to. “Archie spends more time interrupting our video calls than anyone,” he reveals, but concedes, “But he also takes us away from them a lot, which is a nice thing.”
Archie takes after his father
Little Archie probably inherited his cheekiness from his father, and Prince Harry thinks so too. “I always try to keep that to myself. I think that boldness is something that keeps you alive,” says the American by choice. “There is so much to be excited about in the world out there, but there is also so much to worry about.”
For his children, however, he wants to try to make the world a better place. “What else is having children for, right? It’s a responsibility that I feel as a parent and that you probably feel as a parent too.”
With these wise words, it is difficult to imagine that the 37-year-old appeared single and childless at the first “Invictus Games” in London in 2014. A lot has happened since then – the wedding to Duchess Meghan, the birth of his first child, the exit as Senior Royals, the big move to Montecito, California and the birth of his daughter.
Especially in his role as a father, he is fully immersed today. What does he love about it? “Everything,” was his reply. “The chaos, the learning, the remembering of every element of yourself, your soul.” Archie is currently in a curious phase in which he asks a lot of questions. “I’ll give him the most honest answer I can until he’s satisfied,” is Harry’s recipe.
Meanwhile, Archie’s little sister Lilibet is trying to “keep up with her brother,” reveals the duke in the current “People” interview and proudly reveals: “She only took her first steps a few days ago.”
