Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given a rare insight into their children’s lives in a new video recorded of them calling winners of the Responsible Tech Youth Power Fund.
For almost three minutes the Sussexes can be seen phoning and congratulating the award holders, with their Archewell Foundation a founding member of the fund.
The couple looked relaxed and happy sat next to each other in a garden setting, and they even briefly mention the impact that these winners and their work will have on their children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
Midway through the video Harry said: “Thank you for doing everything that you do. Our kids especially, are incredibly grateful”, as Meghan nods beside him.
The Duchess then interrups her husband, saying: “They don’t know it yet” while pointing with her index finger, a statement Harry repeats before Meghan adds: “But they will.”

Since their move to Montecito glimpses of Archie and Lilibet are unusual, as their parents seek to keep their lives out of the public eye.
This comes as the Duke is set to embark on a whirlwind round the world trip for work, taking in Singapore, Japan and then Europe where he will attend the 2023 Invicts Games in Düsseldorf, Germany.
It is thought Meghan will join him for at least part of the Invictus Games, which this year will run from September 9 until 16.
Not only will this coincide with Harry’s 39th birthday on September 15, it also comes at a poignant time for the royals as September 8 will be the one year anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s death.
It is not known if the Sussexes will make the trip to the UK while they are close by, or if they will have any contact with the Firm if they do come.
Their recent united front may help to dispel rumours that the couple’s marriage is in trouble, something which friends of the family have consistently denied.
An insider has claimed Harry and Meghan are “fed up” of speculation about their relationship, as they told OK!: “The Sussexes’ marriage is fine.
“The reports of a separation stemmed from Harry making a solo trip to Africa, but that’s a work trip. It’s not a sign of trouble in their marriage.
“Even if there were struggles, Harry would want to make it work. He has invested so much time into their relationship and adores his family. Coming from a broken home himself, that’s extra motivation for him to keep his family together.”
