Prince Harry lights up whenever he talks about his two children, Archie and Lilibet. During his interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the doting dad shared some stories about his kids with his wife, Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry Reveals Archie Takes After His Mom Meghan Markle?
According to Prince Harry, his 3-year-old son Archie takes after his wife, Meghan Markle. And his 1-year-old daughter, Lilibet, has a lot of resemblance with the late Princess Diana.
"I think, at the moment, I see a lot of my wife in [Archie]… The Spencer gene is very, very strong," he said (via Us Weekly).
Prince Harry also admitted that he didn't think his children would inherit his ginger hair.
"I actually really thought at the beginning of my relationship, should this go the distance and we have kids, there is no way the ginger gene will stand up to my wife's genes. I was wrong," he said.
Prince Harry also talked about Archie and Lilibet during his interview with People. He said that he wanted his children to have a relationship with the royal family.
"I've said before that I've wanted a family, not an institution—so of course, I would love nothing more than for our children to have relationships with members of my family, and they do with some, which brings me great joy," he said.
Prince Harry Likens Archie And Lilibet's Relationship To Him And Prince William's Growing Up?
Archie and Lilibet were also mentioned several times in their dad's newly-released memoir Spare. And during his interview with ITV, Prince Harry claimed that his children remind him of his childhood with Prince William.
He said that Archie and Lilibet's dynamics are very similar to how he and his older brother were when they were still growing up.
"The gap between me and William is very similar to Archie and Lili. To see Lili obsessed with Archie and Archie like 'No, no Lili, I need my space, I need my space' — now I get it. I get how irritating the younger sibling can be to the older sibling. But at the moment, at the time, I didn't really grasp that, I didn't really realize it," he said (via Good Housekeeping).
Prince Harry Allegedly Put Archie And Lilibet At Risk Of Not Getting Royal Titles
Following the release of Prince Harry's memoir, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said that it has become ever more unlikely for the Duke of Sussex's children to inherit royal titles from King Charles.
"The issue of Archie and Lili and whether they see their royal cousins and if so, when, is another imponderable in this destructive circus. Under the protocols laid down by George V in 1917, they should automatically be given HRHs, but it is up to the new monarch. This surely cannot happen now and not only because of a 'slimmed down' monarchy,'" he said (via Express).
