A unique gift was given to Prince Harry, 34, for his newborn baby during his visit to Oxford on Tuesday; The Duke of Sussex is so excited about it!


The royal dad cannot wait till Baby Archie can run around as the gift, an egg-shaped golden stone with his name engraved on it will be hidden away in his Windsor garden till the little royal can hunt for it himself.


The gift crafted by Claire Waldron, a caretaker at the Barton Neighborhood center, was made using a varnished piece of rock which she painted gold and designed the baby's full name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten body on it.

Claire Waldron is a creative who is known to design beautiful rock pieces which she calls "Kindness stones" and keeps them hidden for children to search for them as a form of a treasure hunt!

Claire, who presented the gift to the prince, suggested that it would be a great idea to hide it away and leave baby Archie to find it himself when he is older.


The Duke of Sussex was totally in support of the suggestion. He then departed after appreciating the caretaker with a warm hug and a gentle pat in the back for a job well done. A noble gesture!

Tuesday was such a joy-filled day for the royal dad as school kids presented him with cards and posters on his way into the center.He remarked,

"You guys have been busy."

He added:

 "When I'm awake at 4 o'clock in the morning, I'll read all these."


In another visit to Oxford Children's Hospital, Prince Harry was given yet another gift for Baby Archie by Jay, a patient in the hospital. The thoughtful gift, which was a blue balloon animal, was received by the prince in a heartfelt video, and he promised the sweet little boy he was sure going to give it to his newborn.

The Duke said, with a smile on his face:

"That's very sweet. Thank you very much. I'll make sure to give this to my little boy. He's called Archie, and he'll probably pop it because that's what kids do."

The latest royal father has sure been receiving gifts for his newborn as an ex-patient in the hospital; Daisy Wingrove gave him a cute little bear.

Harry loves his newly found parenthood, and he says he can't imagine a life without his baby, as he feels so much a part of the family already! He also revealed he had sleepless nights tending to the baby. Royal daddy duties!.
