Prince Harry Opened Up About Life at Home With Baby Lili

"Two is definitely a juggle."

Little Lilibet "Lili" Diana may not be a month old yet, but she's already giving her dad reasons to be proud. During an appearance at the WellChild Awards in London, Prince Harry explained that his new arrival is, gratefully, pretty chill and that having the new addition has been a real shift for him and his wife, Meghan Markle.

Sources at the event shared that Harry spoke about the differences between Lili and her big brother, Archie. He said that she's "chill" and that Archie is "running around like crazy." That could be due to their respective ages, but Harry seemed happy to share.

"We've been lucky so far, she's very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy," Harry said, according to Hello!.

When Ed Sheeran congratulated him on the arrival, he noted that it's been a change from having just one kid to manage: "Two is definitely a juggle." Sheeran is also a new dad. His daughter, Lyra Antarctica, was born last year.

"He was so down to earth, it was really nice to see him back here," guest Steph Freeman said of Harry's appearance.

Harry's appearance at the event was unexpected, since he's across the Atlantic just to attend the Princess Diana statue unveiling, set for tomorrow. Meghan is staying in California with Archie and Lili. Harry has been a patron of WellChild since 2007 and before his passing, Prince Philip was also a patron of the organization.

"Since becoming patron of WellChild in 2007, this organization and the people within it have held an extraordinarily special place in my heart. I wasn't a father at the time, and yet the stories of these children and parents transcended that. I didn't need to be a dad to feel the impact of this invaluable work," Harry said at the event. "Now as a father of two, I feel all the more connected, inspired, and in awe of the resilience of these families, who power through indescribable challenges with the support of WellChild. The health of our children, of all of us, could not have been more on the forefront of our minds during the past year. And, throughout this time, the WellChild community has set an example for how to show up and act with compassion for each other. I could not be prouder to be here, to meet this year's WellChild award winners, to thank the nurses and doctors for all they do, and to celebrate these amazing families."
