Although I absolutely love Prince William and Duchess Kate’s family, I bet I’m not the only one wishing for the day that Prince Harry settles down and has kids. In case this wasn’t something you’ve given thought to, Harry just showed off some adorable daddy skills while at Toronto’s Invictus Games, where injured servicemen and women participate in sports. Prepare your hearts for this cuteness.
Refinery29 says that Harry caught the attention of a nearby toddler when watching the Sitting Volleyball Finals from the stands on Wednesday. Sitting next to paralympic athlete David Henson and his wife Hayley, Harry was snacking on popcorn when the Hensons’ young daughter Emily reached over from her mother’s lap and tried to swipe a treat from Harry.
Thus began one of the cutest exchanges I’ve definitely ever seen. The new friends made faces at each other, and Harry pretended to steal popcorn away from Emily. I’m writing off Emily’s occasionally bewildered expression as a sign of her age and the fact that she has no clue who this lovely, popcorn-eating man is.

Understandably, this footage won over several Twitter users, who loved this insight into how Harry must be as an uncle to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
I love Prince Harry he probably teases his niece and nephew this way. Diana did a good job with those boys before the tragic death.

Diana's charisma definitely passed along in Prince Harry.

It's been a busy few days for Harry, who was also photographed holding hands with girlfriend Meghan Markle earlier this week. He also delivered a surprise speech to Toronto students celebrating WE Day on Thursday, talking about the importance of relying less on cell phones in life.
"It's more important to look up from our phones, to get out into our communities, and to take real action, to stand up for what you believe in," he told the crowd at the Air Canada Centre.

The Invictus Games run until September 30. We can likely expect to see Harry again at Saturday's closing ceremonies. Here's hoping that Emily Henson gets a seat near him!
