Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, moved to California earlier this year with their son, Archie Harrison after they stepped down as senior royals. Now the Duke of Sussex has shared an insight into their private life in the US. He revealed that they have been working their “a**** off”.
Speaking to the GQ Heroes conference, Harry said: “We’re working our a**** off and Archie is keeping us very busy and making us laugh every day which is great.”
While speaking to Black Lives Matter protester, Patrick Hutchinson, who lifted a white counter-protestor out of harm’s way, the Duke of Sussex talked about the future he and Meghan hope to create for their children when he gave an insight into what he wants for Archie.
Harry explained it is the “whole point in life”.
He said: “Being a dad, the whole point in life was to find and leave the world a better place than when you found it.”
The Duke admitted his privileged upbringing as a member of the Royal Family meant he had no understanding of unconscious racial bias.
Harry said it took him many years – and the experience of “living” in wife Meghan’s shoes – to recognise the issue.
Mr Hutchinson rose to fame after he was photographed carrying an injured white man to safety during a violent far-right rally.
The personal trainer’s actions were repeatedly praised by the Duke.
Harry said: “No-one’s pointing the fingers. You can’t really point fingers, especially when it comes to unconscious bias.
“But once you realise or you feel a little bit uncomfortable, then the onus is on you to go out and educate yourself because ignorance is no longer an excuse.
“And unconscious bias, from my understanding, having the upbringing and the education that I had, I had no idea what it was. I had no idea it existed.
“And then, sad as it is to say, it took me many, many years to realise it, especially then living a day or a week in my wife’s shoes.”
As the son of the Prince of Wales, Harry had all the privileges associated with his position and was educated at the exclusive Eton College. He went on to train as an Army officer at Sandhurst.
The Duke and Duchess have spoken extensively about race in recent months. In an interview and accompanying article in the Evening Standard to mark Black History Month, they said there was a lost generation of people of colour whose contribution to UK society will remain untapped as long as structural racism exists.
Harry and Mr Hutchinson were brought together by GQ as part of its content to support Black History Month and the duke urged people of all backgrounds to get involved in racial issues.
He said: “This is a global movement. The train has left the station. If you’re not on it now then get on it because there’s so much that we can do.
“And, being a dad myself, the whole point in life, I guess, for me, is to try to leave the world in a better place than when you found it.”
