Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is turning out to be a lot like Dad.
“It revolves around the kids as much as humanly possible,” the Duke of Sussex said of little Archie and his 10-month-old baby girl, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor, whom he shares with Duchess Meghan. “This whole working from home stuff is not all it’s cracked up to be, certainly post-COVID, because it’s really hard. But when your kids and you are in the same place, it’s really hard to separate the work from them because they kind of overlap.”
He added, “So, I mean, Archie spends more time interrupting our Zoom calls. But he often gets us off them, as well, so that’s also a nice thing.”
When asked by Kotb if Archie shares his “cheeky” personality, Harry answered, “Yeah, and I think so. I always try and keep that. I think that, the cheekiness is something that keeps you alive.”
Speaking further about parenthood, Harry explained that, as a father, his mission is to make the world better for his kids’ sake. “There’s so much to be happy about in the outside world, but there’s also so much to worry about,” the duke said. “My sort of mantra now every day, it’s a dangerous one, because I need to make sure that I don’t have burnout, but it’s trying to make the world a better place for my kids. Otherwise, what’s the point in bringing kids into this world, right? It’s a responsibility that I feel as a parent and that you probably feel as a parent as well.”
Harry also spoke to Kotb about making California feel like home since the couple relocated from the United Kingdom to North America in 2020.
“Home for me, now, is, you know, for the time being, in the States,” he said. “We’ve been welcomed with open arms.”
