Prince Harry has returned to work, just days after the birth of baby Archie and the world is divided.

The Prince attended The Hague in the Netherlands to launch the one-year countdown to the Invictus Games, he was out in full force as he chatted with other guests, and he was more than willing to oblige in talk about all things baby related.

“He told me how special it was that his son has just been born … [and] how having a small child was his new focus and new goal,” Dennis van der Stroon, 31, recalled to reporters.

A discussion on the Sunrise Facebook page saw people openly sharing their opinions on his flight abroad.

One fan said, “Haha Megan probably had enough of him at home when I had my children I sent my husband back to work because he was under my feet all the time it was nice to have him at home but I Just had to get back into a routine for me and my kids.”

“It’s not as though he was the one who actually gave birth is it, my husband went back to work an hour after our first baby was born.”

Another revealed, “My hubby went back to work from the delivery room!”

Another wrote, “So many people believe being a royal is all glamour! Having to leave your newborn just days later would be torture!”

I bet he also caught up on some sleep during his flight abroad!

A discussiosn on This Morning called for paternity leave to be scrapped.

Alley Einstein thinks dads should bond with baby in their own time but Vanessa Feltz says those first few days are important for both parents…

How soon did your partner return to work?

  • I think it’s a bit rough. Most men get paternity leave of a few weeks. I guess it’s not like Meghan needs his help at home with all the staff they have on hand.


  • My husband didn’t make it for a few days but when he did get back he was home for five weeks.


  • Only briefly then I’m sure he’ll be back with his family.

    • This probably occurs with many families and really is fine.


  • Why is this news most parents are lucky if paternity leave is offered but it really isn’t. Annual leave was the only option


  • I know a Dad who after the arrival of their second baby a few years ago wasn’t given leave by his employer so he had to bring his older child to work with him, They had no family living in the same state and there is a waiting list a childcare centres so he told management he had no option. They moved him to a larger office where there was also less noise and the little one had a sleep during the day. He had some toys to play with and some picture books. He was so quite we hardly heard him even though the office wasn’t closed from floor to ceiling. Their new baby was premature so relatives weren’t able to arrive for a few days due to planes being delayed by foggy weather for a few mornings and stormy weather that caused cancellation of flights


  • This is not that abnormal for a dad, and Meghan would’ve had a lot more help than most.


  • The baby was late. So probably he had already taken this commitment. I’m sure he’ll spend enough time with his son as soon as he’s home. :-)
    My husband accumulated his holidays for the birth of our daughter. So the first 2 weeks he was home with me all the time. The next 2 weeks he worked just in the morning, so by half past one he was home. After those 4 weeks he went back to work full time.


  • It really does not matter if anyone does have an issue with him going back to ‘work’.
    They have so many glorious years ahead of them as a family.


  • This is something close to his heart


  • He is very passionate about the games and this is probably why he is there.
