There’s no doubt Prince Harry is going to make a terrific father. He’s incredibly protective of his pregnant wife, Meghan Markle, and even sprung for a $10,000 christening gift for his nephew Prince Louis. But he’s now revealed that there’s one thing about becoming a new dad that keeps him up at night.
During a roundtable discussion with Commonwealth young leaders, the expectant father said he’s worried about the state of the world that his child will grow up in.
“As someone who is about to become a father, I am acutely aware of our shared responsibility to make this world more resilient and its inhabitants more accountable for the next generation,” he said. “The only way to see real progress is not by chance, it’s by change.”

Established in 1916, @TarongaZoo is Australia's oldest zoological park – their commitment to conservation science has culminated in the development of the Taronga Institute of Science and Learning, whose work in forensic science has helped put controls in place to reduce illegal wildlife laundering. The new Institute, which will offer never-before seen learning opportunities for Australian students, was opened by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex today. #RoyalVisitAustralia #Australia #Sydney
His father, Prince Charles, echoed those sentiments last November a visit to Ghana, when he called the world “damage” and “destroyed”.
“I am about to have another grandchild actually. I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon,” he said, adding, “It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them. All grandchildren deserve a better future.”
The royal baby is expected to arrive this spring.
