Baby Sussex is the name of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Their son was born on the 6th of May.

Prince Harry is not wasting time keeping up with royal duties.

The 34-year-old, who welcomed his first son, Archie, earlier this month with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, traveled to Italy on Friday to play polo for his charity Sentebale.


According to the couple’s Instagram page, the charity, which was co-founded by Harry in 2006 with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho, supports the mental health and well-being of children and young people affected by HIV in Africa.

People magazine reported that Harry together with professional polo pal Nacho Figueras, who was a guest at his wedding in May for the contest, which Markle, 37, and baby Archie at home.

“Sentebale has been working for more than a decade in Lesotho, Botswana and Malawi to the mental health and well-being of children and young people affected by HIV, to provide them with the tools, peer networks and education healthy and productive life,” Harry’s social media page.

“Sentebale at the core of the program is to support children living with HIV reached more than 4,600 children and young people every month who are coming to terms with living with HIV through monthly Saturday clubs in local healthcare facilities, and 1,700 young people through residential week-long camps in Lesotho and Botswana,” it continued.


“Last year alone, Sentebale’s youth volunteers between the ages of 18 and 24 provided sexual and reproductive health education, including topics in the field of HIV-prevention in schools and communities to more than 100,000 of their colleagues in Lesotho.”

Earlier this month, Harry tore himself away from his family and moved to the Netherlands, where he helped with the start of the next phase of his Invictus Games, which is the support of veterans and injured armed forces members. However, Harry is expected to take the time after the polo match in Rome.

People magazine shared by Harry and his older brother, Prince William used to play various charity matches every summer on the side or on the various teams. However, the royal brothers have scaled back their polo-playing this summer due to family obligations.

“They both play polo in support of their charities, but the work and family responsibilities mean that they can’t commit to as much polo as I used to,” claimed a palace insider.


Harry and Markle welcomed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on May 6. He is seventh in line for the British throne and is Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth grandchild. Harry is the youngest son of Prince Charles, the next in line for the throne, and the late Princess Diana.

Sources previously told people that Harry and William, 37, will probably be closer now that they were both parents.

“William and Harry want their children to know their cousins and do things together, so they work harder on their relationship,” a source close to the royal family said. “The brothers have a different kind of relationship and move on.”

William and Harry were rumored to be feuding since William reportedly warned Harry that he and Meghan can go too fast in their relationship.

However, the Cambridges and Sussexes has recently announced that they’d teamed up for a new mental health initiative, so it appears that what the fighting has occurred may be behind them.
