Prince Harry shared an adorable new detail about his son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, during a heartfelt speech on Sunday evening (19 January).
The Duke of Sussex made a reference to Archie while speaking at The Chelsea Ivy Garden restaurant in London at an event for his charity, Sentebale.
Harry revealed that the eight-month-old got to see snow for the first time during the Sussexes' trip to Canada over Christmas. And, it's clear that little Archie was delighted by the experience...
While thanking attendees for their ongoing support, the 35-year-old said: "It has also been a privilege to meet so many of you, and to feel your excitement for our son, Archie, who saw snow for the first time the other day and thought it was bloody brilliant!"
During the speech, Harry also spoke out for the first time about his and Meghan's decision to step back as senior members of the royal family, and spend part of their time living in North America.
In a clip of his speech, shared on the @SussexRoyal Instagram account, Harry said: "Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard or perhaps read over the last few weeks...
"So, I want you to hear the truth from me, as much as I can share - not as a prince, or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the last 35 years - but with a clearer perspective.
"The UK is my home and a place that I love. That will never change."
He continued: "I have grown up feeling support from so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms as you saw me find the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hurray!
"I also know you've come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do. And she does, and she's the same woman I fell in love with.
"We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride."
Harry went on to say that he and Meghan were "excited", "hopeful" and "here to serve" after their wedding.
"For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this," he said.
Going on to explain that the Sussexes had hoped to continue serving the Queen, Commonwealth and his military associations, Harry revealed that "unfortunately, that wasn't possible".
Stressing that he is now hopeful of achieving "a more peaceful life" for his family, Harry added that he "will continue to lead a life of service".
The Duke ended his speech by honouring the Queen, and the rest of the royal family, saying: "I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months.
"I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me."
He concluded: "We are taking a leap of faith - thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step."
It was announced on Saturday (18 January) that the royal family had reached a new arrangement following Harry and Meghan's decision to step back.
It has been decided that the couple will no longer use their HRH titles, formally represent the Queen or receive any public funds for royal duties from this spring onwards.
