Prince Harry shared some rare and revealing remarks about his life as a father to one-year-old son Archie as the family quarantines in their new Montecito home. The Duke of Sussex spoke about Archie during his Zoom appearance with Rugby Football League on Saturday. He wants to get Archie into the game when his son is older, he said, via Entertainment Tonight
“What I need is a few mini rugby balls that I can then get Archie involved with the game, because at the moment it’s impossible to find any,” he said. “But I’ve got a little space outside, which I’m fortunate enough to have so I need to get him playing some Rugby League.”
“I’m just unbelievably fortunate and grateful to have outdoor space and see my son be able to be outside, because I know so many people just haven’t had that opportunity in the last five months [due to the coronavirus pandemic],” Harry continued.

Harry also spoke about what he and Meghan are focused on as new parents and former working royal family members, set to launch their Archewell nonprofit soon (the COVID-19 pandemic delayed it initially): “Our little man is our number one priority, but our work after that is the second priority,” he said. “And we’re just trying to do everything we can to do our part to make the world a better place.”
Harry’s appearance comes days after Meghan’s chat with Gloria Steinem was published on August 26. Meghan spoke with Gloria about how Harry identifies as a feminist and what that means for Archie. “I love that when he just came in he said, ‘You know that I’m a feminist too, right Gloria?! It’s really important to me that you know that.’” Meghan started.
“That was wonderful,” Steinem said.
“But you need that,” Meghan said. “And I look at our son and what a beautiful example that he gets to grow up with a father who is so comfortable owning that as part of his own self-identification. That there’s no shame in being someone who advocates for fundamental human rights for everyone, which of course includes women.”
