Prince Harry is “grateful” for dad life as he watches son Archie and daughter Lilibet grow up.

“They both have got an incredible sense of humor and make us laugh and keep us grounded every single day, like most kids do,” Harry, 39, shared during an interview with Good Morning America on Friday, February 16.

Harry shares Archie, 4, and Lilibet, 2, with wife Meghan Markle, whom he wed in May 2018. He told GMA that the children are doing “great” and “growing up very, very fast.”

The Duke of Sussex played coy when asked what he’s like as a dad at home.

“I can’t tell you,” he quipped. “That’s classified. It’s top secret!”

In the year that followed Archie’s May 2019 birth, Harry and Meghan, 42, announced their official departure from the royal family. The couple has since relocated from England to the United States, where they’re raising their children.

Us Weekly confirmed that Harry flew from Los Angeles to London the day after Charles’ health news went public. Photos showed Harry’s car taking him from London’s Heathrow Airport to Clarence House on February 6.
