Prince Harry talks Prince Archie’s first day in the world, and reveals how he is managing life with a child. Prince Harry is missing his mother on this occasion.
Just a day after the birth of Prince Archie, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, gave the media an insight into his first day as a dad. While launching the countdown to the Invictus Games 2020 countdown in The Hague, the Prince told JJ Chalmers, who later repeated, “He said it’s amazing but it’s hard work. He said that [Archie] slept for the first 24 hours like all babies do . . . and then he woke up.”
JJ told Hello, “I said to him that when my daughter came home from hospital, three years ago, she slept all the way home and for ten minutes in the house and she then opened her eyes and never went back to sleep!”
JJ added, “I see the guy with a buzzing smile on his face still. Like any father he lights up even more when he speaks about his son and how proud he is of his wife and what she’s doing right now in his absence. It’s remarkable that he’s here. I did say this was his first baby. In some ways it shows you just how much it means to him, to drag himself away, because I know what it’s like being a young father – you don’t want to leave and if he had the choice he would be at home.”
JJ Chalmers and Prince Harry became friends at the Invictus Games in 2014.
