Proud Dad Prince Harry Wore a Customized "Daddy" Invictus Games Jacket

Prince Harry took a few hours off from being the happiest dad ever to support one of his favorite causes—the Invictus Games in The Hague, in the Netherlands, in a planned trip that got cut short because Meghan Markle gave birth to their son Archie. Amongst other presents, he got a customized Invictus Games jacket with the word "Daddy" stitched on it.

Prince Harry took a few hours off from being the happiest dad ever to support one of his favorite causes—the Invictus Games in The Hague, in the Netherlands, in a planned trip that got cut short (opens in new tab) because Meghan Markle gave birth to their beautiful son Archie. So, Harry is compressing a lot of activity into a short trip—and the organizers and participants brought it upon themselves to celebrate the new dad with, amongst other presents, a customized Invictus Games jacket with the word "Daddy" stitched on it, as a present for Harry. Gah! I melt from the cuteness!

As originally spotted by royal reporter Simon Perry (opens in new tab), Harry was likely gifted the jacket (and I really hope he gets to keep it, because that's the best gift ever) as well as a onesie and rattle from fans and event organizers. I am fairly certain that he and Meghan are about to be showered with gifts the world over, and in fact they already have way before the baby was born (opens in new tab). Harry later sported the jacket while cheerfully riding an Invictus Games bike, smiling for the cameras and goofing off like the total dad he is.

Harry, it's not for you! It's for Archie! Harry as happy goofy father might be my favorite Harry.
