When James asked what Harry thinks of Netflix’s The Crown, he replied, “It’s fictional, but it’s loosely based on the truth.” Harry continued, ” I am way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family or my wife or myself. Because it’s the difference between, that is obviously fiction, take it how you will, but this is being reported on as fact because you’re supposedly news. I have a real issue with that.”
James asked about fatherhood, and Harry did not mention the fact that Meghan is currently expecting another baby. But Harry did gush about son Archie, saying that the boy is “hysterical” and has “the most amazing personality.”
The proud papa revealed that his son’s first word was “crocodile” and added, “He’s already putting three, four words together. He’s already singing songs.”
Harry then shared that Queen Elizabeth had asked the couple what Archie might want for Christmas, and Meghan’s answer was a waffle maker, which the Queen ended up sending to them.
“So at breakfast now, Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix, in the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes,” Harry said. “He loves it. And now I have waffles for breakfast, bit of yogurt, bit of jam on top—I don’t know if that’s the right thing to do—bit of berries maybe, a little honey, maybe some syrup. Archie wakes up in the morning, and he just goes, ‘Waffle?'”
When James asked if Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip know how to use Zoom, Harry shared that he and Meghan have Zoomed a few times with his grandparents, and that they’ve gotten to see Archie having some fun.
This led the host to ask his guest about the announcement on Feb. 19 that he and his wife will not return as working members of the royal family.
