Prince Harry shared a seriously sweet detail about his and Meghan Markle's son Archie as he took part in a special video call with the winners of the WellChild awards. 

As Prince Harry, who shares Archie and one-year-old Lilibet, with wife Meghan, met with four-year-old Henry Waines, he compared the little one to his own son.

Henry was awarded the Inspirational Child award in the 4-6 years category, having suffered with serious health problems since birth. 

"My name is Henry. Well everyone calls me Harry. I have no idea why," Prince Harry said to little Henry, before telling him his small voice reminded him of Archie's. 

"You sound just like my son Archie really. The same little squeaky voice. I love it," Harry added. 

Henry made sure to ask after Archie and little Lili, saying, "How are Archie and Lilibet doing?"

Prince Harry and Meghan are raising their children in Montecito, California, having stepped away from their roles as senior royals in 2020 and leaving the UK. 

Opening up about his children's development, Harry responded, "They're doing great. Archie is very, very busy and Lili is learning to use her voice which is great."

Harry also shared a lovely moment with seven-year-old Tony Hudgell, who was severely abused as a baby and was left with life-long injuries. 

"I'm thanking you for your resilience, your determination, your bravery, your strength, your everything," Harry told Tony, adding, "You seem like a bit of a superhero. Where's your cape?"

"I do have a cape in my room. I don’t wear it a lot," Tony responded, as Harry joked, "Only on weekends!"
