Prince Harry has revealed that his daughter Lilibet resembles the late Princess Diana, while Archie is more like his mother, Meghan Markle.

The final episodes of Prince Harry and Meghan's much-discussed Netflix series, Harry & Meghan, launched this morning, giving a glimpse into the couple's lives with their two children, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one.

In the final episode of the six-part series, Harry reveals the family members their children are most like, explaining that while he believes his son has characteristics of Meghan, he sees a lot of his mother, the late Princess Diana, in his daughter.

"I think at the moment I see a lot of my wife in Archie and a lot of my mum in Lilibet," he says. "She's very Spencer-like.

He describes his daughter's physical features and says she has "the same blue eyes" as his mother, "Blue, blue, blue eyes," Meghan interjects, and "sort of like a golden, red-ish hair," Harry adds.

Viewers also get to see some sweet family footage, including a clip of Prince Harry tenderly stroking the face of a then newborn Lilibet, and gain an insight into how much being parents means to the couple.

"There was something that felt so complete once we had Lilibet," Meghan explains of her daughter's birth.

"Everyone just really respected that we had been through so much and that we, like any parent, deserved to just welcome their child into the world peacefully and have that time as a family to nurture and cocoon. Which we did, with the addition of our little toddler."

Later in the episode, Serena Williams offers some further insight into the couple's family life.

"They're creating their own family," the tennis star says. "And friends can be family too. They can start something fresh and new, and hope that one day that family on both ends will be able to understand that this is truly love."

Having chosen to step back from their roles as senior royals in 2020 and made the decision to relocate to the US, Harry goes on to explain the positive impact the move has had on the children, particularly Archie.

"Just seeing Archie running across the lawn and this big smile on his face... this is the world that he knows," he says.

"He spent his first five months in Windsor – that was it. This is his home to him. This is home to Lili. And this is our home.

"I get to do things with our kids I would never get to do in the UK," he adds.

The couple's children made some rare and touching appearances throughout the first three episodes of the documentary series, with the couple sharing many anecdotes about family life.

Prince Harry also spoke candidly about how important he sees his role of being a father.

“My son, my daughter, my children are mixed race, and I'm really proud of that,” he says in the documentary.

“When my kids grow up and they look back at this moment and they turn to me and say, ‘What did you do in this moment?’ I want to be able to give them an answer.

"I think it's such a responsibility as human beings that if you bring a small person into this world that you should be doing everything you can to make the world a better place for them.”
