- Prince Harry admits having two children is a bit of a challenge, but his newborn daughter Lilibet Diana is “so chill.”
Prince Harry attended the 2021 WellChild Awards on Wednesday at Kew Gardens, London, where he was tested by pop star Ed Sheeran, who has a 10-month-old daughter with wife Cherry Seabourne, into staying with his sons Archie, two – and Lily every three weeks. The 30-year-old singer said, “Congratulations, girls, right? We had a baby girl ten months ago. You’re still in the trenches! How do you deal with two? “
Harry admitted, “Two must be juggling.”
The 36-year-old prince – who became a father for the second time last month – said his eldest son was spinning “like crazy,” but his little daughter was so far a dream. Here we are lucky, he’s so chill and looks happy just sitting there while Archie walks around like crazy.”
Harry and the former Suits actress – known as Megan Markle before marrying Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter in May 2018 – announced the happy arrival of their little girl and revealed that the baby would also be named after the King of England, their nicknames being Lilibet, and their late mother, Princess Diana.
In a statement, they said: “Lily was named after her great-grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen, whose surname was Lilibet. Her middle name, Diana, was chosen in honor of her beloved late grandmother, the Princess of Wales.”
And it was recently rumored that Diana would be “excited” about the name choice. Stuart Pierce, the former voice coach of the late King, believes the princess, who died in a car crash in 1997, would be happy if her grandson’s middle name paid homage to him.
She said, “Diana would be happy to pick a name for her baby. “Since Diana is the epitome of love and an example of unconditional love, she will be pleased with the babies and their beautiful names.”
