Prince Harry has spoken about his family life and has given an adorable update on his daughter Lilibet in a rare interview.

  • The ‘proud’ father of two has been delighting royal fans at the Invictus Games, where he and his wife Meghan even shared a rare PDA moment.
  • Now he's given a sweet update on his daughter Lilibet, sharing she’s trying to catch up to her brother.
  • This royal news (opens in new tab) comes after Princess Charlotte mirrored an iconic floral look with her Easter outfit (opens in new tab) that made fans feel nostalgic. 

Prince Harry has given an adorable update on his daughter Lilibet Diana (opens in new tab), revealing that he’s definitely a "proud papa".

In an interview with People magazine (opens in new tab), Prince Harry gave a rare insight into his family life at his LA home (opens in new tab).  He shared that Lilibet was following her brother’s lead and was determined to catch up to him.

The father of two said, “Her current priorities are trying to keep up with her brother. She took her first step just a few days ago. Proud papa, here.”

Fans can likely expect further updates on baby Lilibet, as Meghan is set to talk about raising their daughter in her new Spotify podcast (opens in new tab).

Harry also took the opportunity to gush over his son Archie Harrison (opens in new tab), saying he couldn’t wait to share the Invictus Games with him. 

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and their baby son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor meet Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe at the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation during their royal tour of South Africa on September 25, 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa.

When asked if he was looking forward to introducing his son to the games, he said, “We can’t wait. I showed Archie a video of wheelchair basketball and rugby from the Invictus Games in Sydney, and he absolutely loved it.”

This comes as the Sussexes had a secret reunion with the Queen (opens in new tab), before jetting to the Netherlands for the postponed 2020 Invictus Games. 

Sadly it seems Lili and Archie didn’t get to attend this time around, meaning the Queen is still yet to meet her (opens in new tab), with reports that she is "desperate" to do so.

Harry’s father, Prince Charles is also said to be filled with ‘incredible sadness’ (opens in new tab) over not having met Harry’s youngest. Hopefully, a reunion is still on the cards with his father, as Harry is said to be "determined" to return to the UK so his children are not "robbed of royal life" (opens in new tab).
