Prince Harry, dad for 72 hours, is the king of dad jokes


He may only be a father for 72 hours, but it seems like Prince Harry already has his dad jokes down pat. 

The 34-year-old royal welcomed his first child with Meghan Markle on Monday, May 6. Two days later, the new parents introduced their little bundle of joy to the world: A perfect 7-pound baby boy named Archie Harrison

“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing and I mean I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy,” Meghan said to the media at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel. The new parents, before thanking the public for their well wishes, gushed over Archie and how they can’t wait to watch him grow up.

During the brief photocall, Meghan and Harry were also asked about who they think the baby looks like.

“We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows,” Harry said. 

Many royal fans were quick to notice the “carbon copy” similarities between Meghan’s baby photos and Archie — however, it was Prince Harry’s perfectly timed dad joke that left fans more than amused.

“He has already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful,” Harry soon quipped.

The Duke of Sussex was welcomed into the father club by his older brother Prince William on Monday, who made a dad joke of his own. “I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting!” William, dad of three, chaffed.
