In a new Apple TV+ docuseries, the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry revealed rare details about his son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, including some first words that had a more powerful effect on him than he expected.
Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have stepped away from royal life, both have remained intensely polarizing international media figures. But of course, that hasn't stopped the press from obsessing over every detail of their lives.
And the more private a matter is to them, the more it means to those prying eyes. That's likely why it's considered such a rare and significant event when the couple reveals something about either their son Archie or their daughter Lilibet.
Indeed, it's hard to balance how proud someone is as a parent with how much they want to protect their children from an invasive public.
But considering how meaningful some of Archie's first words would turn out to be for Harry, it's not hard to see why he'd decide against keeping them to himself.
