Prince Harry reveals what Archie wants to be when he grows up – inspired by his dad09/04/2023
Prince Harry has revealed what his son Prince Archie wants to be when he grows up, which has been inspired by his father.
During his new Netflix documentary series, Heart of Invictus which was released on 30 August, the Duke of Sussex spoke openly about his eldest child's aspirations along with an important life lesson for the four year old.
Providing a closer insight into family life, Harry said: "When I talk to my son Archie about what he wants to be when he grows up, some days it's an astronaut, some days it's a pilot.
"But what I remind him is no matter what you want to be when you grow up it's your character that matters most.
"And nothing would make his mum and me prouder than to see him have the character of what we see before us today – you."
Harry shared these words during a speech at the Games in The Hague last April, which is shown in the new five-part series.
Archie's idea of becoming a pilot is thought to be inspired by his dad, who served as a pilot while he was in the British Army for ten years, having passed his training to become an Army Air Corps.
Harry went on to qualify as an Apache helicopter commander in 2013 after three years of training.
During a five-month tour in Afghanistan, Harry served as a co-pilot gunner where he shared flight duties and took control of the weapons of the two-man Apache.
The Netflix docu-series, Heart of Invictus follows ex-military who competed in the 2022 Invictus Games following tragedy as they rebuild their lives.
Harry founded the global sporting event, Invictus Games, in 2014 and will attend this year with his wife, Meghan Markle, joining him later when it is held in Germany, Düsseldorf from 9 September.
The event is no doubt very special to Harry with his new documentary providing a closer glimpse inside those lives who compete in the games, along with the duke talking about his own experiences.
Royal expert, Jennie Bond exclusively told OK! that the series "shows us the very best of Prince Harry".
Explaining this, the journalist and TV presenter said: "Heart of Invictus is an incredibly moving documentary series about the mental – even more than the physical – trauma that wounded servicemen and women endure after leaving military life.
"Harry is the perfect lynchpin of the series, because he can identify so closely with the injured personnel. His wounds, though, are internal.
"He talks about the trauma of losing his mother when he was just 12, and how they left him unable to feel anything, unable to cry, until his emotions were triggered during his deployment in Afghanistan, and everything began to unravel."
