During a video conference with a recipient of this year’s WellChild Awards, Prince Harry gave an update on his kids Archie and Lilibet.
Following his forced absence from the cherished event scheduled for the evening of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s passing on September 8, the Duke of Sussex spoke with the Award winners via video.
The Duke was asked how things were during his conversation with Henry, his parents Ben and Siobhan, and “How are Archie and Lilibet doing?” Harry said. “They are doing fantastic. What year are you now?”
“But yes, in answer to your question Henry, Archie is very very busy and Lili is learning to utilize her voice, which is amazing,” Meghan’s husband said in response to the boy’s inquiry about his kids.
The young boy was then urged to “continue being the brave guy that you are, not just for your mum and dad but for your little brother as well,” by Harry, who was speaking from his home in California.
The Duke said he had “complete respect” for Henry’s parents for handling the task of raising a child with a terminal disease while maintaining a positive attitude.
“I know how hard it is, and you guys continue to smile. It’s always tougher for the parents than it is for the kids,” he said, “but having been part of this organization for more than a decade, I know how hard it is.
Archie was born in May 2019 when Harry and his wife Meghan were still employed with the Firm. Lilibet, on the other hand, was born more than a year after the Sussex family moved to California and stopped serving as working royals.
