- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are expecting their first baby.
- People are speculating on what a fun father Prince Harry will be.
- The royal is known for his goofy antics, and is often photographed meeting children at public events.
- INSIDER has put together some of the best moments between Prince Harry and the kids that he meets.
Over years of innumerable public appearances, Prince Harry has been snapped goofing off in pretty much any circumstance imaginable – often with children involved.
From what we’ve seen, kids seem to love the royal, and it looks like he’s going to be a seriously fun dad.
Markle is due to give birth in April – but if you can’t wait until then, we’ve gathered the most adorable photos of Prince Harry interacting with children.
Scroll down to see some of the best moments between Prince Harry and the kids that he meets.
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.
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…
…and the Commonwealth Service, which is the largest annual inter-faith gathering in the United Kingdom.
Here he is with kids’ favourite, Paddington Bear.
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.
You can watch the utterly delightful footage here.
After pulling a series of funny faces…
…he eventually gave in to the toddler’s demands.
He’s not afraid to let the kids take the wheel…
…and sometimes they literally jump on him.
He doesn’t always play fair when it comes to sports — but the kids don’t seem to mind.
Prince Harry has always played a lot of rugby.
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.
He still gets shy when confronted with big crowds sometimes.
This rather weak attempt at a dab has dad-material written all over it.
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.
Here, he shares a hug with a young boy during a public walkabout in Rotorua in October.
He can play the part of the photographer when necessary…
…which often comes in handy.
He knows how to be hands-on when it comes to meal time.
He knows how to chat to animals, which is a bonus.
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.
Harry doesn’t mind rolling with the punches…
…or flashing a wide smile to every fan he meets.
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.
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.
He seems comfortable with kids of all ages…
All the photographic evidence points to one conclusion…
…that Prince Harry is going to be a seriously fun dad.
