Prince Harry is ready to teach his son rugby (even though the kid is barely more than a year old). The Duke of Sussex recently opened up about his excitement for Archie to play the sport.
Over the weekend, Harry participated in a video chat in honor of the Rugby Football League's 125th birthday. He was joined by players Gemma Walsh, Emily Rudge, Leeds Rhinos, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Jordan Robinson and more. During the chat, the 35-year-old spoke about his love for the sport and how he hopes to get his son “involved” in the not too distant future.
“What I need is a few mini rugby balls that I can then get Archie involved with the game, because at the moment it's impossible to find any,” he told the group.
Luckily, his and Meghan Markle’s new Santa Barbara home has an ample amount of space for outdoor activities. “I've got a little space outside, which I'm fortunate enough to have so I need to get him playing some Rugby League,” he continued. “I'm just unbelievably fortunate and grateful to have outdoor space and see my son be able to be outside because I know so many people just haven't had that opportunity in the last five months.”
The royals’ new $14.65 million home, which they moved into back in July, is about 100 miles north of the L.A. estate (formerly owned by Tyler Perry) they had been staying at since the beginning of quarantine. A representative for the couple revealed, “They have settled into the quiet privacy of their community since their arrival and hope that this will be respected for their neighbors, as well as for them as a family.”
Baby Archie playing rugby in the yard? Maybe some of his famous neighbors will join in.
