Prince Harry Reveals That One of Archies First Words Was ‘Grandma Diana’

Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor’s very first word may have been “crocodile,” but Prince Harry just revealed another one of his first phrases, and you may need to grab some tissues.

During a personal conversation with Oprah Winfrey to promote their co-executive-produced Apple TV+ series, The Me You Can’t See, the Duke of Sussex revealed that one of the 2-year-old’s first phrases was in honor of his grandmother, Princess Diana. Turns out, Archie calls his grandmother, “Grandma Diana.”

“I got a photo of her in his nursery, and it was one of the first words that he said—apart from ‘mama,’ ‘papa,’ it was then ‘grandma.’ Grandma Diana," he said per People. “It’s the sweetest thing, but at the same time, it makes me really sad because she should be here."

The 35-year-old royal also opened up about how he wishes his mother got the chance to meet his son, his wife (Meghan Markle) and even their baby girl, who will be arriving later this summer.

“I wish she could’ve met Meghan. I wish she was around for Archie," Harry continued. “[But] I have no doubt that my mom would be incredibly proud of me. I’m living the life that she wanted to live for herself, living the life that she wanted us to be able to live. So not only do I know that she’s incredibly proud of me, but that she’s helped me get here. And I’ve never felt her presence more as I have done over the last year.”

As we mentioned above, Harry revealed earlier this year that Archie’s first word was “three syllables.”

“My son is now just over a year and a half. He is hysterical. He’s got the most amazing personality. He’s already putting three or four words together, he’s already singing songs,” Harry said in an interview with James Corden. When Corden asked about his first word, Harry proudly responded, “Crocodile. Three syllables.”
