The sweetest things Prince Harry and Meghan have said about Baby Archie
It’s only been a few weeks since Archie Harrison was born, and his doting parents have not stopped showering him with praise ever since. The little royal was born on May 6, 2019 with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan sharing the exciting news within the walls of Windsor Castle a few days after his birth. Since then, here is everything the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have said about their first-born so far:
On witnessing Archie’s birth
Harry: "It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing."
Harry: "I haven’t been in many births. This is definitely my first birth. But it was amazing. Absolutely incredible. I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. As every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to die for. So I’m just over the moon."
Meghan: "It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. And here I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy."
Harry: "Parenting is amazing. It’s only been what, two and a half days, three days? But we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy to spend some precious times with him as he slowly starts to grow up."
On little Archie’s personality
Meghan: "He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm, and—he’s been, just been a dream, so it’s been a special couple days."
When visiting the Netherlands for the Invictus Games, Harry told competitor Dennis van der Stroon that Archie is “very quiet”: “Above all he said he was just amazed by the miracles in the world, and how his child has made a lot of people happy," van der Stroon said. "He told me he’s really happy that his son is so far very quiet..."
On their love for their son
During an official visit to the Oxford Children’s Hospital, Prince Harry told Amy Scullard, a mother whose son is currently battling cancer, that he “can’t imagine” life without Archie: "He said he’s getting used to the baby and how Archie has fitted into family life," Scullard said. "He said he just feels part of the family and he can’t imagine life without his son."
