Prince Harry reveals Archie's first word was 'crocodile'

The Duke of Sussex has revealed his son Archie's first word was 'crocodile' and the Queen sent him a waffle maker for Christmas, during a chat with James Corden.

Prince Harry also told the comedian that the nightly routine for his 'hysterical' 21-month-old son with wife Meghan Markle involves 'tea', a bath and a bedtime story.

And the Duke revealed in a segment for The Late Late Show that Archie has the 'most amazing personality' and is already putting four words together and singing songs.

Harry, who now lives in a £11million mansion in California after stepping down as a senior royal last year, told Corden: 'My son is now just over a year and a half.

'He is hysterical, he's got the most amazing personality. He's already putting three, four words together, he's already singing songs.'

Asked what Archie's first word was, Harry said: 'Crocodile, three syllables.' And Corden replied: 'Crocodile? That's a big word.'

Harry went on: 'Interesting, my grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas, and Meg said a waffle maker. She sent us a waffle maker for Archie.

'Breakfast now, Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix. In the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes. He loves it. And now I have waffles for breakfast.

'A bit of yoghurt, a bit of jam on top, I don't know if that's the right thing to do. A bit of berries, maybe, a bit of honey, a bit of syrup.'

But Corden pointed out: 'Sorry, you're glossing over the fact that I cannot for the life of me imagine the Queen ordering a waffle maker to be sent to Santa Barbara. I can't get my head around...'

Harry responded: 'I don't even know how to comment on that. Archie wakes up in the morning and literally just goes: Waffle? Done.'

Asked about a normal night in, Harry said: 'Depending on how the day's been, how busy it's been, we'll do Archie's tea, give him a bath, read him a book, put him down.

'Go downstairs, Meg might cook a meal, might order a takeaway. Go upstairs, sit in bed, turn the TV on and watch some Jeopardy, maybe watch a little bit of Netflix.'
