While there were some shocking revelations revealed in Prince Harry and Meghan's Netflix docuseries, the couple also shared a sweet insight into their family life.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are parents to three-year-old Archie and one-year-old Lilibet.

In episode six of Harry & Meghan, the Prince revealed which side of the family his children take after, which you can see in the video below. 

"I think, at the moment, I see a lot of my wife in Archie and I see a lot of my mum [Princess Diana] in Lili. She's very Spencer-like. She's got the same blue eyes…" he said.

"Blue, blue, blue eyes," Meghan emphasised.

"Sort of like golden reddish hair," Harry added of his daughter, as home footage showed Lilibet wearing a floral romper and crawling across the Sussexes' garden in Montecito.
