Prince Harry recently opened up about an important conversation he had with Archie, his soon to be three-year-old, and gave an insight into how he is as a parent. He and wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, also share another child together, little Lilibet (who is one this year and who was named in honour of the Queen).

When asked by a reporter at People if he's looking forward to taking his children to the Invictus Games (a sporting competition for injured and sick servicemen and women – including both veterans and those currently serving) when they're older, Prince Harry replied that he "can't wait!".

So, does this mean we can expect to see the little one popping up at the next Games? Certainly sounds it, as the Duke also shared that Archie is already somewhat of a fan.

"I showed Archie a video of wheelchair basketball and rugby from the Invictus Games in Sydney, and he absolutely loved it," the proud dad added, before saying that it's always been important to teach his children that not all disabilities are obvious – something that too often goes unrecognised.

"I showed him how some [players] were missing legs and explained that some had invisible injuries, too," Prince Harry recalled. "Not because he asked, but because I wanted to tell him.

"Kids understand so much, and to see it through his eyes was amazing because it’s so unfiltered and honest."

During the interview Harry also revealed that the Invictus Games are extra special for him and Meghan as a couple, as the Toronto Games back in 2017 were the first place they appeared publicly together.

"There is nowhere you can feel more embraced and supported than with the Invictus family," he explained. "The Toronto Games were our first time out and about publicly in an official way. We were dating at the time, so it was a lot to take in, but fortunately, we were with the perfect community for that.

"Now, five years later, here we are in The Hague at the fifth Invictus Games, as parents of two, and living in the U.S. I had always wanted to share these incredible moments with someone special, and to have Meg by my side means everything."

Too cute!
