PRINCE HARRY has plucked the heartstrings of the nation after he has revealed new details about Baby Archie.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son arrived in the early hours of Monday, May 6, weighing in at 7lbs 3oz. The world was treated to the first sight of Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor just two days later, when his “overjoyed” parents presented him in a photoshoot in Windsor. But the new dad was back to work just four short days after the birth of his son when he attended the Hague for the official launch of the one year countdown to the Invictus Games.
While the Duke of Sussex has been conducting his royal duties, the main topic of conversation has been his little bundle of joy, whom he is clearly devoted to.
His love for his son was made clear to a mum-of-two on Tuesday when Prince Harry visited Oxford Children’s Hospital.
Harry chatted to Amy Scullard from Aylesbury, whose three-year-old son Emmett is in remission after being diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of two.
During their chat, Amy was holding her ten-week-old daughter and the conversation immediately turned to Prince Harry’s little one.

During his visit, the new dad took a tour of the hospital and met parents whose children have been battling cancer on the hospital’s Kamran Jabble ward.
He then met teenagers on a ward specifically tailored to the needs of young adults.
Christine George, 52, whose son James, 17, is having chemotherapy, said: “He said he had all this organised but had a sleepless night last night – not the ideal preparation for his first day at work.”
Harry was also reunited with WellChild award winner Mikayla, 13, who met the Duke at the WellChild Awards in 2016.

Before entering the hospital, the Duke of Sussex took the time to speak to some of the royal fans who had been waiting for him for hours and he spent extra time with children in the front rows who looked eager to meet him.
But Prince Harry’s attention was quickly captured by charming 13-year-old Daisy Wingrove, a former patient of the hospital who presented Harry with an adorable teddy bear wearing a white t-shirt for his son, Archie.
The Oxford Children’s Hospital is a purpose-built centre for the treatment of children and young adults, which has a series of wards specifically designed to provide for the needs of ill children and teenagers.

Yesterday, Baby Archie met his aunt and uncle, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the first time.
Prince William and Kate visited Baby Archie yesterday afternoon at Prince Harry and Meghan’s home in Frogmore Cottage.
Sadly, Baby Archie will have to wait a while before he meets his three young cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, who are said to be “dying” to meet Archie, according to a royal source.
