Prince Harry returned to work on Thursday just three days after welcoming his first child, son Archie Harrison, with wife, Meghan Markle, on Monday, and a jacket that he wore for the outing had the internet going wild.

The Duke of Sussex jetted off to the Netherlands to take part in the official launch of the 2020 Invictus Games at Sportcampus Zuiderpark in The Hague. Harry founded the sporting event back in 2014 as a way of celebrating wounded veterans of the armed forces.

While riding around on a bike with fellow attendees at the celebratory event, Harry can be seen wearing a black zip-front windbreaker adorned with the slogan, "INVICTUS FAMILY," on it in white lettering. It's a phrase adorned on other Invictus Games merchandise, but Harry's specific jacket from Thursday featured a special amendment on it as a tribute to his newborn royal baby. With the "I" from "INVICTUS" and "AM" from "FAMILY" bolded in yellow, and the word "DADDY" added in yellow at the bottom, his jacket actually said, "I AM DADDY."

The hilarious move appears to have been a gift from his fellow Invictus Games organizers, who also gifted him with a baby onesie on Thursday.

Of course, the internet went wild over photos of Harry proudly wearing the piece of clothing while riding a bike. After The Cut posted an Instagram highlighting it, commenters proclaimed, "this is exactly the type of content we love, thank you."

"Lol he's going to be a good dad," someone else wrote, while more users simply posted laughing, heart and fire emojis in reaction to the photos.

Harry's trip to the Netherlands sparked a lot of speculation amid heightened anticipation for his first child's arrival: It was just announced last week, and he was initially expected to travel to Amsterdam for another engagement yesterday, but the Wednesday portion of his trip was postponed for "logistical reasons."

During a photo call with Meghan to debut their son, Archie Harrison, on Wednesday, Harry said that the first couple of days as a father had been "amazing."

"We're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy," he went on. "His looks are changing every single day. He's already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful."

When asked if the baby looks more like his mother or his father, Meghan added that they're "still trying to figure that out!"
