Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are well-known for their privacy when it comes to their personal life, and that includes their children: Three-year-old Archie Harrison and 11-month-old Lilibet Diana. But this week, Prince Harry made a very rare and very public tribute to his daughter by means of fashion.
Appearing in a promotional video for a New Zealand travel company, the Duke of Sussex can be seen running through a forest with a t-shirt that says, "Girl Dad". How sweet!? His top is, obviously, a sweet not to his little girl – who, by the way, will be celebrating her first birthday next month.
Speaking about his involvement in the advert, Harry said in a statement: "As travel continues to come back, we have an opportunity and a need to redefine the industry — for better, for good."
He went on, "There is a well-known Māori proverb: Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, ēngari he toa takitini (Success is not the work of an individual. But the work of many) — we invite you to be a part of our many."
And it seems that travel is at the top of the Duke's priority list right now, as he and the Sussex family will be making the trip to the UK in June to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. It'll be the first time that the Sussexes have visited the UK as a family of four, meaning Her Majesty will finally meet her namesake Lilibet for the first time.
It comes after Harry and Meghan made a secret visit to the Queen last month following their time at the Invictus Games in the Netherlands. Clearly the meeting went well, as just a few weeks later the Sussexes were officially invited to celebrate the Monarch's milestone with the rest of the Royal Family.
"Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, are excited and honoured to attend The Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children," a spokesperson for the couple said last week when the news was announced.
However, the Sussexes will not appear on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the Trooping of the Colour (as is tradition), as the Queen has decided only working members of the Royal Family will be invited. "After careful consideration, the Queen has decided this year’s traditional trooping the colour balcony appearance on Thursday 2 June will be limited to Her Majesty and those members of the royal family who are currently undertaking official public duties on behalf of the Queen," a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said.
Members of the family who aren't currently carrying out royal duties will still be invited to take part in other Jubilee events, which the spokesperson said has "always" been made "clear".
