Prince Harry’s hopes for son Archie’s ‘stolen’ future as toddler turns 2

Doting father Prince Harry has publicly gushed over his son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, several times over the course of the tot’s young life.

Archie will turn 2 on May 6 and will soon be a big brother to a girl, as Meghan Markle is heavily pregnant and expecting their second child.

Harry most recently spoke about Archie in a December 2020 interview for WaterBear, a streaming platform for non-profit organisations.

During the interview, the Duke of Sussex spoke of his hopes for Archie’s future, stating that he hopes the world won't be on "fire" by the time his son reaches his age.

Prince Harry, who has become an advocate for climate change prevention, said: "The moment you become a father everything really does change because then you start to realise, well, what is the point in bringing a new person into this world when they get to your age and it's on fire?

"We can't steal their future."

Just after Archie's birth Harry spoke at the Diana Award National Youth Mentoring Summit in London where he spoke of being a role model to his son.

At the time, the Duke said: "My son will always be watching what I do, mimicking my behaviour, one day maybe even following in my footsteps."

Prince Harry also spoke about the time coronavirus has given him to spend with his child so closely.

He said he is "fortunate" and "grateful" to have been able to see his son go outside and play over the last year, as many people have not had that opportunity.

Meghan Markle and Harry have spent the majority of the pandemic at their home in Montecito, California, with baby Archie.

During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple gave the world a glance into Archie's Chick Inn coup, a coup for Archie's chickens.

It is clear the family are extremely close, and the Duchess has now written a book inspired about Harry's bond with Archie.
