Prince Harry Is “Really Proud” to Be the Father of Mixed-Race Children

Emily Kirkpatrick, Vanity Fair, December 8, 2022

Prince Harry couldn’t be more thrilled to be a father and wants to make sure his two children, Archie and Lilibet, always know just how loved and cherished they really are.

Throughout the first three episodes of the royal couple’s new Netflix docuseries, Harry & Meghan, the Duke and his wife Meghan Markle regularly share anecdotes about their kids, as well as some never-before-seen family photos. At one point, Harry specifically addresses the fact that his children will be the first mixed-race members of the royal family and how important it is to him that they know that he loves and supports them. “My son, my daughter, my children are mixed race, and I’m really proud of it,” he said. “When my kids grow up and they look back at this moment and they turn to me and say what did you do in this moment—I want to be able to give them an answer. I think it’s such a responsibility as human beings that if you bring a small person into this world that you should be doing everything that you can to make the world a better place for them.”
