Dad Harry left baby Archie and mom Meghan at home in Windsor to head to Oxford for a day of royal duty, including a visit to a special centre that was once visited by his late mom Princess Diana. However, that doesn’t mean the baby boy is out of mind when his dad is away.
During the visit, he chatted to the mum-of-two mom of two Amy Scullard, who held her 10-week-old daughter Ida. Scullard, whose son Emmett, three, is in remission after being diagnosed with testicular cancer when he was two, revealed: “Harry asked me if she was over the stormy period as babies are supposed to be grumpy for the first ten weeks – and she is”.
“He said he’s getting used to the baby and how Archie has fitted into family life. He said he just feels part of the family and he can’t imagine life without his son.”
Harry did, however, admit that little Archie kept him up last night, according to royal reporters Rebecca English of the Daily Mail and RoyahNikkah.
Dad Harry was also presented with a teddy bear for his son Archie. After receiving the gift, Harry let out a big sigh and “Ahhh.”
Prince Harry took a tour of the hospital and met parents whose children have been battling cancer on the hospital’s Kamran Jabble ward, named after a former patient. In addition, he visited with teenagers in a ward specifically tailored to the needs of young adults and spoke with members of the hospital’s staff.
Before heading out, Harry stopped by the Oxsrad Disability Sports and Leisure Centre. It was opened in 1989 by his mother, the late Princess Diana, in 1989. The centre supports people with disabilities and offers sports, exercise, rehabilitation sessions and fitness classes.
Sarah Vaccari, from Oxford Hospitals Charity, said: “We’d love to have him all day and show him absolutely everywhere across the children’s hospital, we’re so proud of it.
“But I think he’ll meet enough people and patients and supporters to get a really good sense of why it’s such a special hospital.”
