Prince Harry has candidly opened up on being a father to his son Archie and revealed his son changed “everything”.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, shares his one year old son Archie with wife Meghan Markle, 39.

Harry, who’s wife Meghan tragically suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, discussed his new conservation-based streaming service, WaterBear Network, and revealed how he is more conscious of the climate after becoming a dad.

Speaking via video link from his stunning Californian mansion, Harry opened up on fatherhood with CEO Ellen Windemuth and Head of Strategy Sam Sutaria of WaterBear.

Harry said: “Being in nature is the most healing part of life. I truly believe that's why it's there.

“From the moment you become a father, everything really does change because then you start to realise, well, what is the point in bringing a new person into this world when they get to your age and it's on fire?”

The WaterBear platform will offer free documentaries and live, original content from more than 80 NGOs across the world.

Harry, who’s godmother Lady Celia Vastey died suddenly aged 71 recently, went on to express his concerns for the next generation as he said: “We can't steal their future, we really can't. That's not the role, that's not the job we're here for.


“I’ve always believed that hopefully we can leave the world in a better place than when we found it.”

He then discussed the pandemic and described 2020 as a “a universally tough year for everybody” before adding: “Somebody said to me at the beginning of the pandemic, it's almost as if Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour.

“To really take a moment and think about what we've done.”

He also urged people to be more like raindrops in the speech as he said: “Every single raindrop that falls from the sky relieves the parched ground. What if every single one of us was a raindrop, and if every single one of us cared?

“At the end of the day, nature is our life source… But you can't uplift, educate and inspire unless there is a form of action that follows.”

Harry asked people to take action to prevent a climate disaster as he said: “For me it's putting in the dos behind the says. There's a lot of people that say, but this is about action.”
