Until now, we've not known much about Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's private life at home in Los Angeles with their sweet son Archie Harrison and daughter Lilibet. The royals are notoriously private about their life away from the spotlight.

However, father Harry gave a surprise interview to our very own James Corden on his Late Late Show earlier in the year and even revealed what his little boy eats for breakfast!

It turns out that adorable Archie loves eating waffles in the morning, and his favourite breakfast is all down to a present from his grandmother, the Queen!

WATCH: Prince Harry talks about Archie's love of waffles

Harry told James: "My son is now over a year and a half, he is hysterical, he's got the most amazing personality, he's already putting two, three words together, he's already singing songs. His first word was 'crocodile', three syllables."

He continued: "Interestingly, my grandmother asked us what Archie wanted for Christmas and Meg said a waffle maker, she sent us a waffle maker for Archie... so breakfast now, Meg makes up a beautiful organic mix, in the waffle maker, flip it, out it comes, he loves it. Archie literally wakes up in the morning and says 'waffle'."

Harry is also a waffle convert, telling James:  "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...."

We absolutely love that! Everyone likes a waffle and we suspect a new brekkie trend is heading our way now thanks to royal tot Archie. We wonder if his baby sister will like them too…
