The Duke of Sussex opened up about the death of his mother Princess Diana after becoming a father to baby Archie during a visit to the Netherlands yesterday.

Harry also described how his newborn son Archie has given him a new focus as he wore a jacket emblazoned with the words 'I am daddy' for the launch of next year's Invictus Games in The Hague.

Former soldier Dennis van der Stroon, who met the Royal, said: "Harry talked about how having a small child was his new focus and new goal. He said missing a mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother."

The duke received a special Invictus Games babygro for Archie by Princess Margriet of the Netherlands.
