Prince Harry Says He’s “Really Proud” of Being a Dad to Mixed-Race Children

Prince Harry is reflecting on the magnitude of being a father in his new Netflix docuseries with wife Duchess Meghan.

The first three episodes of Harry & Meghan dropped on Netflix early this morning and have given us a closer glimpse at the lives of the famous couple, especially in the years following their famous exit from the royal family.

In between scenes of them discussing major life moments such as their first date, their engagement, and Meghan's integration into the royal family, the couple also share anecdotes about their two young children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.

Harry specifically mentions his feelings about being a parent to mixed-race children—the first mixed-race kids to ever be a part of the royal family.

"My son, my daughter, my children are mixed race, and I'm really proud of that," he says in the documentary. "When my kids grow up and they look back at this moment and they turn to me and say, 'What did you do in this moment?' I want to be able to give them an answer. I think it's such a responsibility as human beings that if you bring a small person into this world that you should be doing anything you can to make the world a better place for them."

The couple have been fiercely protective of their children's privacy since their relocation to Montecito, California, as a family, but the documentary provides an intimate look at their life as parents. Touching clips of Archie bird-watching with Harry or running on the beach with the family puppies are all shown in between narrations of his parents recounting their lives together over the last five years, representing the change of pace they have seen since moving to America and starting over as not just a couple, but as a family.
