Prince Harry discussed his three-year-old son Archie during an episode of his AppleTV+ docuseries, The Me You Can't See, and it was all in reference to the young royal honouring his late grandmother Princess Diana.

Opening up about his son with Meghan Markle in the fifth episode, the duke shared that the couple's first born child's nursery has a photo of Princess Diana hanging on the wall.

And that's not all.

The father-of-two also revealed Archie's first word was 'grandma'.

Prince Harry explained: 'I got a photo of her in his nursery, and it was one of the first words that he said — apart from "mama", "papa", it was then "grandma". Grandma Diana.'

He continued: 'It's the sweetest thing, but at the same time, it makes me really sad because she should be here.'

Last March, while talking to James Corden, Prince Harry disclosed another of Archie's first words: 'crocodile'.

He told the The Late, Late Show host: 'My son is now over a year and a half, he is hysterical, he's got the most amazing personality, he's already putting two, three words together.

'He's already singing songs. His first word was "crocodile", three syllables.'

The couple chose to name their one-year-old daughter Lilibet 'Lili' Diana after both the Queen and Princess Diana, with her forename taking after Her Majesty's family nickname.

Ahead of Lilibet's first birthday last May, the Duke of Sussex spoke about what his daughter is like, saying: 'Her current priorities are trying to keep up with her brother; she took her first step just a few days ago!'

He dotingly added: 'Proud papa, here.'

Last month, while honouring his mother ahead of the 25th anniversary of her death, the Archewell co-founder said he wished his kids had met her.

This was while highlighting how he wants the anniversary of her death to be marked.

'I want it to be a day filled with memories of her incredible work and love for the way that she did it. I want it to be a day to share the spirit of my mom with my family, with my children who I wish could have met her. Every day I hope to do her proud,' he said.

Back in 2016, the official twitter page for the Queen and other members of the royal family shared the first letter Her Majesty wrote to her own grandmother Queen Mary who had gifted her a doll's house.

In the letter, she referred to the former Queen as 'darling granny'.

We'll wait to learn of how Lilibet addresses both the 96-year-old monarch and Princess Diana.
