Did you notice baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor in his dad Prince Harry’s new mental health series with Oprah Winfrey, The Me You Can’t See, on Apple TV+? The toddler, son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, makes a brief but delightful appearance in an episode. In never-before-seen footage, he sits on a swing in the backyard of the family’s Montecito, California, home, playing in the sunshine. See screenshots here.
Markle, too, makes a brief appearance in the series. In a different scene, she and Prince Harry look at something on his computer together; Markle looks happy with whatever they’re watching and rocks a “raising the future” T-shirt.
In the series, Prince Harry speaks candidly about how becoming a father and husband made him reprioritize his mental health.
“My father used to say to me when I was younger, ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you,’” he said, per People. “That doesn’t make sense—just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had, you can make it right for your kids.”
“I…had a son, who I would far rather be solely focused on, rather than every time I look in his eyes wondering whether my wife is going to end up like my mother and I’m going to have to look after him myself,” he reveals, adding that this fear is part of what drove him from senior royal life. “That was one of the biggest reasons to leave, feeling trapped, and feeling controlled through fear. Both by the media and by the system itself, which never encouraged the talking about this kind of trauma.”
The Me You Can’t See is now streaming on Apple TV+.
