Although there were tons of people who wish they could be the Princess Buttercup to Prince Harry's Wesley, there are now even more folks who just want to see Harry and his new wife Meghan Markle and have lots of adorable ginger offspring. From his substantial charity work in support of disadvantaged children to his regular public appearances at schools and youth sports programs, Harry has established himself as a champion for kids of all walks of life.

It's obvious that when Harry is finally ready to have a family of his own, he'll be a caring, supportive, and very cool parent. And since him and his wife have dropped pretty strong hints that they want a family sooner rather than later, we think it's safe to say that we might get to see Harry in dad-mode in the near future. And we can't wait!

Prince Harry has always been one of the most extraverted royals, which has given us plenty of reason to believe that he'll pretty much be the dad of the century. He's fun, lovable, and downright charming. And sure, Kate and William are rockstar parents, but we just know that the Duke of Sussex is going to be the coolest dad to walk the Commonwealth. 

So, if you aren't convinced just yet, no need to fear. Here are 17 signs that Prince Harry will be an awesome dad. And sorry ladies, you have to remember that he's already taken. 

  • He Understands Teenagers

    His reputation as being the coolest member of the royal family means Harry is great at relating to teenagers. He might not be able to assuage the fury of an heartbroken 13-year-old girl who doesn't want to make her bed, but he'll definitely know to cheer her up with a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby ice cream.

  • He Takes Great Family Portraits

    Harry knows the importance of a quality family photo. He'll make sure his kids have plenty of embarrassing photos of their dad making goofy faces to share on Facebook. 

  • He Goes to Great Lengths to Make a Kid's Day

    He'll travel all the way to Jamaica from the UK to make a kid's day a little bit brighter. If he does this for children he doesn't even know, just imagine how dedicated he'll be to his own kids' happiness. 

  • He's Got Game

    So many photos of Harry feature the prince playing sports like football, polo, or rugby. Sports are a great way to encourage kids to stay active and grow into their own person, so this is a great quality for a future father to have.

  • He Doesn't Think Disabilities Needs Make Anyone Less Wonderful

    He gets that something as simple as dancing with your kids can turn a miserable day into a great family memory. To be fair, Harry probably has better moves than most dads.

    No matter how busy Harry gets, he always makes time to do charity work and spend time with kids in need. He'll take time away from his demanding royal duties to be there for his kids too.

    Harry's the kind of guy who makes sure everyone feels like they're part of the team, so you know he'll be the kind of dad who makes sure everyone in the family feels equally important and loved.

  • He Has a Playful Side

    Harry has served his country in more ways than one. His future kids will see their dad's commitment to making the world a better place and feel inspired to do the same.

    If there's one thing Harry specializes in, it's helping kids who need it the most. One way he achieves this is through the work he does with his charity Sentebale, which provides education and health care to disadvantaged children in Lesotho.

  • He Knows Girls Play Just as Hard as Boys

    You won't see any sexism when Harry's on the field with his kids. He knows girls are every bit as tough and athletic as boys.

  • He Speaks Baby Language

    Babies seem to have their own, indiscernible language, but Harry looks like he's fluent in baby speak.

  • He Thinks You're Doing a Great Job

    Harry delivers great high-fives whenever he thinks someone's doing their best, and what kid doesn't love knowing their dad is proud of them. Most kids like the "down low, too slow" trick a little less, unless they're the ones doing it. 

  • He Appreciates a Good Hug

    Harry knows that a good hug can do wonders for a kid's mood. It looks like he really enjoys them too.

  • He Understands That Actions Speak Louder Than Words

  • He Minds His Manners

    He knows that manners really matter, especially for royals, and he'd pass on that lesson to his kids by example. Just look at that proper handshake.
