Prince Harry\s visit to Oxford Children\s Hospital, OXSRAD, and Barton Neighbourhood Centre | The - The Oxford Times

Prince Harry just revealed the CUTEST thing about baby Archie – grab the tissues!

The Duke of Sussex is floating on cloud nine having welcomed his precious little boy Archie last week. And on Tuesday, his devotion to his son was clear to see as he visited Oxford Children's Hospital. Harry chatted to mum-of-two Amy Scullard from Aylesbury whose son Emmett, aged three, is in remission after being diagnosed with testicular cancer when he was two. Amy was holding her ten-week-old daughter, and the pair immediately struck up a conversation about baby Archie.

"Harry asked me if she was over the stormy period as babies are supposed be grumpy for the first ten weeks – and she is," Amy revealed. "He said he's getting used to the baby and how Archie has fitted into family life. He said he just feels part of the family and he can't imagine life without his son." Awww!

Later that afternoon the Duke of Sussex was commended for keeping Princess Dianas legacy alive as he visited the OXSRAD Disability Sports and Leisure Centre, which his late mother was pictured opening in similar touching pictures dating back to 1989.

During the emotional visit, the new dad was presented with a teddy bear for his son Archie. He took a tour of the hospital and met parents whose children have been battling cancer on the hospital's Kamran Jabble ward, named after a former patient. Harry also met teenagers on a ward specifically tailored to the needs of young adults. He was reunited with 13-year-old Mikayla, a WellChild award winner, who previously met the Duke at the WellChild Awards in 2016.

The Duke of Sussex, 34, who welcomed son Archie with Meghan last Monday, opened up about life as a new father as he spoke to patients and their families at Oxford Childrens Hospital today.  

The Sussexes became parents for the first time on Monday 6 May. Despite his son's birth, Harry has continued carrying out work engagements, even travelling to the Netherlands last week to launch The Invictus Games The Hague 2020. The royal spoke about the early days of parenting with his friend JJ Chalmers, who recalled: "He said it's amazing but it's hard work. He said that [Archie] slept for the first 24 hours like all babies do, and then he woke up."

Mother-of-two Ida Scullard, whose three-year-old son Emmett is in remission, revealed the prince had struck up a conversation after seeing she was cradling her 10-month-old daughter. 

JJ added: "I see the guy with a buzzing smile on his face still. Like any father he lights up even more when he speaks about his son and how proud he is of his wife and what she’s doing right now in his absence."

The Duke of Sussex beamed as he attended his first day of royal events in the UK following the arrival of his son Archie last Monday. He visited Oxford today and started with a visit to the city’s children’s hospital. In a children’s cancer treatment ward, Christine George, 52, whose son James, 17, was having chemotherapy, said about Harry: “He said he had all this organised but had a sleepless night last night – not the ideal preparation for his first day at work.”

Harry then visited the Oxsrad Disability Sports and Leisure Centre, which was opened by his mother Diana, Princess of Wales in 1989.

Prince Harry has revealed he already cant imagine life without son Archie  – but admitted the baby had kept him up last night.

The duke ended his day in Oxford by touring the Barton Neighbourhood Centre, a hub for local people which houses a doctor’s surgery, food bank, cafe and youth club.

Despite the lack of sleep, Harry was still in a cheerful mood as he greeted well-wishers who had waited patiently in the streets of Oxford to catch a glimpse of the Prince today.

His warm and friendly presence was praised by royal fans, who commented on a pictures posted by the SussexRoyal Instagram account.

Gram_mags_ said: “It’s like looking like how his mother embraced the crowd, so genuine.”

Teamsussex7777 simply said: “Princess Diana would be so very proud of you, both you and Meghan are doing a great job helping and improving the the lives of others.”

Harry also remembered his mother in the Instgram post, which read: “The Duke of Sussex, in celebration of its 30th year, re-opened the OXSRAD Disability Sports and Leisure Centre, a facility first opened by his mother, Diana Princess of Wales in 1989.

“His Royal Highness felt honoured to pay tribute to her work and meet some of the people his mother met 30 years ago.”

She said: “Harry said Meghan and the baby are doing good and when I asked if he was sleeping a lot he said ‘yes’.”

Meghan and Harry became parents for the first time on Monday, May 6, when Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born weighing 7lbs 3oz.
