Another day, another adorable Archie nickname.
Over the weekend, Prince Harry participated in a video chat in honor of the Rugby Football League's 125th birthday. The Duke of Sussex was joined by players Gemma Walsh, Emily Rudge, Leeds Rhinos, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, Jordan Robinson and more. During the chat, the 35-year-old opened up about his 15-month-old son in a really sweet dad moment. Not to mention, he even revealed a new nickname.
“Our little man is our number one priority, but our work after that is the second priority and we’re just trying to do everything we can to do our part to make the world a better place,” Harry told the group in the video.
“Little man” isn’t the only nickname Archie’s parents have given him. In May, Meghan and Harry shared a clip taken for Save the Children U.K.'s #SaveWithStories campaign in honor of their son’s birthday, which featured the duchess calling Archie by the nickname “Arch.” And during the Sussexes’ 2019 meeting with Archbishop Tutu and his daughter in Africa, Markle reportedly called her son Bubba, too.
During Harry’s latest appearance, the duke also 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 said. “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.”
We have a feeling “little man” is going to be very good at rugby, just like his father.
