Just three days after the birth of his first child, Prince Harry was back to work as he undertook an overseas trip to launch the Invictus Games countdown in Holland. Prince Harry proudly showed off his Invictus Games daddy jacket and was all smiles at the event. Earlier, the Duke of Sussex had cut down his visit and limited it only to a day since he wanted to be by wife Meghan’s side and their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
At the event, Prince Harry spoke to former soldier Dennis van der Stroom who later addressed the media. Stroom said, “He (Prince Harry) said missing a mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother.”
The Duke of Sussex was just 12 and Prince William 15 when Diana died in a fatal car accident in August 1997 in Paris. The former soldier also said the duke “talked about how having a small child was his new focus and new goal”. He added, “He also told me he’s really happy that his son is so far very quiet. At the event, Prince Harry was also gifted an adorable onesie for his son Archie. The Invictus Games is a safe place for the injured and sick personnel of the armed services to come together and take part in sports such as wheelchair basketball, rowing, and sitting volleyball.
