Prince Harry Ready For Fatherhood? Prince William's Brother Says He'll Be A Fun Dad
Prince Harry, 32, revealed he's primed for fatherhood. The "spare" of the British monarchy and the younger brother of Prince William, the "heir," described how he's going to be a fun dad when he has kids.
Prince Harry spoke about becoming a dad during a podcast with The Telegraph. He told "Mad World" host Bryony Gordon that having children crossed his mind before and he got some experience handling kids with his godchildren, nephews and nieces.
The fifth in line to the throne revealed whenever he bonds with these kids he's also embracing a child-like and playful attitude. "If that means going to someone's house, sitting there and playing PlayStation, kicking the ass of their son on Counterstrike, or Halo, or whatever it is, then I'll try and do that," he said.
Speaking of fun and playful, spectators at the Invictus Games in Toronto recently spotted Prince Harry bonding with a 2-year-old boy. The royal got down to the boy's level and pretended to spar with the little one, who incidentally is also named Harry.
"We call him our Prince Harry, so getting the chance to meet the real thing is amazing," Dan Phillips, the 2-year-old's dad said, as per E! News. "He certainly loved it." Prince Harry established Invictus in 2014 as an international Paralympics event.
Meanwhile, a former bodyguard for the royals described Prince Harry as the "mischievous one" as a child. "He would go around saying he could do anything he wanted as William was going to be King and have all the responsibility," Ken Wharfe said, as per Daily Mail.
Wharfe also praised the prince for publicly speaking about his mental breakdown following his mother's untimely death when he was only 12. Prince Harry admitted he bottled his feelings over losing Lady Diana and only came to terms with this 20 years after during therapy. The prince said he's in "a good place" since seeking professional help.
