Prince Harry who is known for his love for children clearly missed his son Archie on his trip to the Netherlands. He rocked a "Daddy" jacket as a tribute to his baby boy.
The joy of being a father can be unexplainable. Though changing diapers may sound a scary task, no man is any less thrilled to have a little human to cuddle and love. No different is the newest father in town, Prince Harry. The royal, who recently stepped into fatherhood with the arrival of his beautiful baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is beyond excited and happy. The young dad did not hide his joy but decided to tell the world of how proud he was to become a father not just through his words but even through his clothes.
According to People, the Prince who made a quick trip to the Netherlands stepped out in a jacket that “Invictus Family Daddy” embroidered on it in bold white and yellow lettering. The prince who beamed with happiness during the announcement of his son Archie's birth did not stop there. The yellow letters on the jacket read, "I Am Daddy.”
Harry who clearly missed his little prince displayed his love through the jacket. Prince Harry, however, didn't stop there. During the event, he also discussed fatherhood with a friend and said that it was the “best thing he will ever do.”
Prince Harry who made the trip two days after the arrival of his newborn was down in the Netherlands to launch the one-year countdown to the 2020 Invictus Games, founded by him for wounded military members in action. The International event offers injured, sick military personnel and veterans to participate in a variety of sports like wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, and indoor rowing. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also made their first official appearance at the 2017 Invictus Games held in Canada.
JJ Chalmers, a former Invictus star and broadcaster and a close friend of Prince Harry told the media of how he felt Harry would be a proactive father in the upbringing of their son. He also added that the Prince would be hands-on and was positive that Harry had already started changing diapers.
"I’m sure he will be walking through the door tonight and be handed the baby and told it’s his turn now," he remarked. "I think naturally he’s obviously going to have a hard time with the sleep for a little while. But I said it [fatherhood] is the best thing he’ll ever do," said the former Royal Marine.
He also reflected on how difficult it would have been for him to leave his little boy behind just two after the birth. "If anything I suppose it shows the importance of this competition to him," he said to People. "The [Invictus] is his first baby." He also went to say how Meghan would have also like to be part of the event. "I’m sure Meghan would love to be here too. This event has families at the absolutely heart of it," he remarked.
People also reported that Prince Harry was gifted with a new soft rattle toy, some newborn socks with "I love Daddy" written on them and a special Invictus Games onesie for little Archie.
