5 Shocking Things We Learned from Prince Harry’s Surprise Tell-All Interview with James Corden

On Thursday, television host James Corden aired Harry’s appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. And considering it was a 20-minute-long interview, there was a ton to unpack. Keep reading for five of the most interesting things we learned.

1. Archie’s first word 

One moment that really caught our attention was when the Duke of Sussex opened up about his son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor. Not only did he give details on his personality, but he even revealed his first word: Crocodile. In addition, the 35-year-old also opened up about Archie’s Christmas gift from his Gan-Gan, aka Queen Elizabeth. “My grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas and Meg said a waffle maker,” he continued.

2. Meghan Markle’s sweet nickname for Harry

During the clip, the TV host and the Duke of Sussex stopped at the original home used in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. In an attempt to get Harry to move into the famous mansion, Corden FaceTimed the Duchess of Sussex to get her opinion. While she wasn’t thrilled about the idea, the 39-year-old also made sure to ask her hubby, “Haz,” how his time with Corden was going. Yup, she calls him Haz

3. Prince Harry has some pretty impressive rapping skills

While at the mansion, and in keeping with Corden's usual theme of singing skits, Corden asked the 35-year-old to recite the show’s theme song. And honestly, we were super impressed. 

4. Harry’s major realization on his second date with Meghan

Markle and Harry’s whirlwind romance is one we’ll never get tired of revisiting. And while we can only pretend to be a part of their relationship, the Duke of Sussex just revealed some intimate details about their first few dates, specifically when he first knew that she was “the one.” “The second date I was starting to think, ‘Wow, this is pretty special,’” Harry said in the clip. “It was just the fact we hit it off with each other and we were just so comfortable in each other's company.”

5. Who the Duke of Sussex would pick to play him on ‘The Crown’

We’ve always been curious about the British royal family’s true thoughts on Netflix’s hit show, The Crown. Lucky for us, Prince Harry is finally weighing in. The prince revealed that while he’s not against the groundbreaking drama, he definitely would classify it as fiction “loosely based on facts.” Of course, Corden needed to ask who Harry would like to play him in the series. His response? Billions actor Damien Lewis.
