Prince Harry loves a high-five. Here, she shares one with a young boy after planting trees at a London primary school in March 2019.

Here he is dishing out handshakes and high-fives to schoolchildren on an official visit to Brighton in October.

Image

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken part in a number of events involving children, like the annual WellChild Awards, which Prince Harry has been a patron of since 2007…

Image

…and the Commonwealth Service, which is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the United Kingdom.

Image

Here he is with kids’ favourite, Paddington Bear.

Image

This is the moment that stole the heart of the internet, when the prince caught a toddler stealing his popcorn at the Invictus Games in Toronto.

Image

You can watch the utterly delightful footage here.


After pulling a series of funny faces…

Image

…he eventually gave in to the toddler’s demands.

Image

He’s not afraid to let the kids take the wheel…

Image

…and sometimes they literally jump on him.

Image

He doesn’t always play fair when it comes to sports — but the kids don’t seem to mind.

Image

Prince Harry has always played a lot of rugby.

Image

He used to play for the army during his 10 years of active service.


But he’s a handy soccer player too, and reportedly supports Arsenal FC.

Even though the prince loves sports, he’s been known to turn his hand to more artistic pursuits from time to time.

Image

He still gets shy when confronted with big crowds sometimes.

Image

This rather weak attempt at a dab has dad-material written all over it.

Image

He’s a real kid at heart…


…but he knows when to dish out a fatherly hug. Here he is with Relebohile ‘Mutsu’ Potsane, who Prince Harry has stayed in touch with since they first met during his first visit to Lesotho in 2004.

Image

Here, he shares a hug with a young boy during a public walkabout in Rotorua in October.

Image

He can play the part of the photographer when necessary…

Image

…which often comes in handy.

Image

He knows how to be hands-on when it comes to meal time.

Image

He knows how to chat to animals, which is a bonus.

Image

He treats young girls like the little ladies they are. Here, he meets Orla Reilly, the daughter of the British Ambassador to Morocco, in February 2019.

Image

Harry doesn’t mind rolling with the punches…

Image

…or flashing a wide smile to every fan he meets.

Image

He also knows how to persevere in less than ideal conditions. Harry and Markle braved the dreary weather to go and meet young fans during a visit to Bristol in February.

Image

He’s been known to make young fans feel at ease. Here, he comforts a nervous young boy during his trip to Wellington, New Zealand in October.

Image

He seems comfortable with kids of all ages…

Image

…from babies…

Image

…to toddlers…

Image

…to teens.

Image

All the photographic evidence points to one conclusion…


…that Prince Harry is going to be a seriously fun dad.
