Prince Harry opens up about becoming a father and it's super sweet

Royal Family 01/02/2019

Prince Harry opened up this week during a speech at the Commonwealth Youth Roundtable about being a future father to Meghan Markle's baby.

Speaking to youth from across the 53 Commonwealth countries - as part of his new role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador which he took over from the Queen in 2018 - he revealed how preparing for fatherhood had made him "more passionate than ever" to help youth lead change to build a better world for future generations. 

"As someone who is about to be a father, I am acutely aware of our shared responsibility to make this world more resilient and its inhabitants more accountable for the next generation. The only way to see real progress is not by chance, it's by change. Let's get to work," he said.

Harry, the Duke of Sussex, also mentioned his trip to little old NZ last year saying it had been "incredibly humbling to see how young people like yourselves are creating innovative and clever solutions to the diverse challenges you face."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their baby in April, with plans to move into their first family home, Frogmore Cottage, before the baby arrives. 

The home's undergoing extensive renovations currently, with Meghan enlisting the help of interior designer to the stars Vicky Charles. She's said to be helping the royal couple create a vegan, eco-concious and gender neutral nursery for their future baby.
