The Queen’s sweet gift for great-grandson Archie

The Duke also revealed the Queen sent Archie a waffle maker for Christmas.

He told James: “Interestingly, my grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas and Meg said a waffle maker.

“She sent us a waffle maker for Archie so, breakfast now, Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix, in the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes, he loves it.

“Archie literally wakes up in the morning and says ‘waffle’.”

How adorable.

“It was stepping back rather than stepping down”

Meanwhile, Harry also spoke about he and Meghan’s decision to step back from royal life last year.

He admitted: “It was never walking away, it was stepping back, rather than stepping down.

“It was a really difficult environment, as I think a lot of people saw. We all know what the British press can be like, and it was destroying my mental health.

“I was like, this is toxic. So I did what any husband and what any father would do, is like, I need to get my family out of here.”

He added: “But we never walked away. And as far as I’m concerned, whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away.

“I will always be contributing, but my life is public service, so wherever I am in the world, it’s going to be the same thing.”

How Harry knew Meghan was “the one”

Things also turned to romance in the chat as Harry opened up about knowing Meghan was “the one”.

The Duke admitted: “The second date, I was starting to think, wow, this is pretty special.

“It wasn’t so much where we went, it was just the way that we hit it off with each other, and we were just so comfortable in each other’s company.”

Harry’s thoughts on The Crown

James also asked Harry about Netflix series The Crown, which has been criticised for blending fact with fiction.

Appearing to defend the show, Harry said: “They don’t pretend to be news, it’s fictional but it’s loosely based on the truth.

“Of course it’s not strictly accurate, but, loosely, it gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle, what the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that.

“I am way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, or my wife or myself.”
