Prince Harry discusses his hopes for Archie and Lillibet’s future
Speaking at the Invictus Games in The Hague, the 37-year-old Duke of Sussex said he will “never, never rest” until he makes the world a better place for his children Archie and Lilibet. Harry made the comments in an interview with two young Dutch reporters who asked the Duke about his hopes for the next generation.
Sophia and Jay, of the Dutch title Kindercorrespondent, questioned the Duke about his wish for his two-year-old son and ten-month-old daughter.
He replied: “Growing up in a better world. Growing up in a fairer world, a safer world, a more equal world.
“It won’t be easy, but I’ll never, never, ever rest until I as a parent have at least tried to make the world a better place for them.
“Because it is our responsibility for the world to be as it is today. I don’t think we should bring children into the world unless we make that commitment to make it better for them.”
“Unable to restrain oneself!” Harry torn for ‘talking loose’ about children’s future
Harry and Meghan arrived in the Netherlands on Friday to attend the Invictus Games
Author, journalist and historian Alexander Larman claims that the Duke “seemed incapable of confining himself to the present case” in the interview.
He pointed out how his wife Meghan was spotted with children and their families during the Invictus Games on Sunday.
The mother of two told those in attendance that she wanted to come to the private event because she missed Archie and Lili, who had not made the trip to the Netherlands with their parents.
He claims this was a “tacky PR-friendly statement” before adding that Harry’s ambitions for the future were “false talk”.

In a piece for The Spectator, Mr Larman wrote: “While Meghan limited herself to the lame, PR-friendly statement that she enjoyed being around children at the games because she missed her own children, her husband seemed unable to confine himself to the matter at hand.
“With all his loose and misleading talk of ‘stealing the future’, the Duke seemed to suggest that there must be some sort of reckoning for those irresponsible enough to procreate, unless the world went unrecognizable in the short term. changed.”
Children were a prominent part of the couple’s visit to the Games, and at one point the couple were driven around a small track by children in mini Land Rover vehicles.
The couple sat in separate mini vehicles and helped the children drive them to navigate the track.

During this trip, which marks the couple’s first time on European soil since they retired from royal duties in 2020, the couple also spoke about their children.
In an interview for Hoda Kotb that aired on TODAY on Wednesday, Harry spoke about living with his son Archie, during the pandemic, and how he shares a similar personality.
While speaking at the opening ceremony of the Games, he shared more about Archie, who turns 3 next month, and what his career aspirations are in the future.
He said, “When I talk to my son Archie about what he wants to be when he grows up, sometimes it’s an astronaut, other days it’s a pilot — a helicopter pilot, of course.”
