Being a parent to two kids under the age of three might sound chaotic, but it seems Prince Harry is having no trouble being a #1 dad. After welcoming his second child with wife Meghan Markle in June this year, Harry has been getting to grips with juggling fatherhood with being one of the most high-profile members of the Royal Family. Luckily, according to one Royal insider, he has a 'real magic touch' – especially when it comes to getting Lilibet off to sleep at bedtime.

Speaking to US Weekly, a source close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said: 'Harry adores Lili and loves reading her bedtime stories and rocking her to sleep.' We'd guess one of their favourite books to read is Meghan's own children's book, The Bench, which she wrote to celebrate the sweet bond between father and child.

The insider also revealed that the couple are loving their new life as a family of four, adding 'There's just so much love and gratitude and they couldn’t ask for more.'

Prince Harry and Meghan became parents for the first time in 2019 when they welcomed their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on 6 May. Just a year later, the pair announced their decision to step down as Senior Royals and moved to California where they now own a home in Montecito. Earlier this year, the Sussexes revealed the happy news that they were expecting a second child, and on 4 June welcomed their daughter, Lilibet, who's named after her great-grandmother The Queen.

Sharing the news of her birth on their Archewell Instagram account, Harry and Meghan said: 'On June 4th, we were blessed with the arrival of our daughter, Lili. She is more than we could have ever imagined, and we remain grateful for the love and prayers we’ve felt from across the globe. Thank you for your continued kindness and support during this very special time for our family.'

Just a month after Lili's birth, HELLO! reported that Prince Harry had described having two kids as 'definitely a juggle.' Although he added that he and Meghan had 'been very lucky so far,' and that Lili is 'very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy.'

As for the Duchess of Sussex herself, she gave Royal fans an update on their daughter during her first public appearance since Lili's birth. On a visit to New York last month, when a reporter asked, 'Meghan, how's Lilibet?' she replied with two words: 'She's beautiful!' How cute?
