Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Are In "State of Sheer Delight" With Baby Archie

Prince Harry is adjusting to fatherhood very well, according to several people close to the royal.

According to People, the Chairman of Sentebale Johnny Hornby opened up about Prince Harry's new role as a father during the 2019 Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup.

Hornby revealed, "You can tell what am incredible affinity he has for children. He is a magnet for children. I didn’t think he could have appreciated children more than he did before, but I have seen a whole new involvement with them now that he is a father."

As for what baby Archie Harrison is really like, Hornby explained, "Nacho [Figueras] met little Archie last week and said that the Duke couldn’t take his eyes off of him—nor his hands. The two of them are just in a state of sheer delight over this birth."

Harry's close friend Nacho Figueras also told People, "The Duke is the kind of father I always imagined he would be. He has always had a great love for children and a great understanding of them. I noticed that becoming a father has influenced him and his dedication and love for the project is now stronger than ever."

Today marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth - a family of 53 countries working together to promote democracy, protect human rights, regenerate the environment, and focus not on what makes us different - but rather what we have in ‘common.’ What unites us versus what divides us. Representing nearly one third of the world’s population, 60% of whom are under the age of 30, the Commonwealth also serves as a champion for youth empowerment, which is a key focus of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Her Majesty The Queen serves as patron of the @queens_commonwealth_trust, which Their Royal Highnesses proudly serve as President and Vice-President of. The Duke is also Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. Through The Duke and Duchess’ Commonwealth travels, they have worked with and supported young leaders on mobilizing youth engagement, and working towards a more unified future that spearheads progress, sustainability, optimism, and taking action. With that said, Mozambique, a member state of the Commonwealth, is currently enduring Cyclone Kenneth, the most destructive natural disaster the northern coast has ever experienced. On the heels of Cyclone Idai (where over 1000 people lost their lives) this cyclone will leave the people of Mozambique victim to catastrophic flooding, food insecurity, displacement, and obliteration of their homes and villages.
