Prince Harry got high on laughing gas when Archie was born

The 38-year-old royal tied the knot with Meghan, Duchess of Sussex in 2018 and the pair went on to have their firstborn a year later but he has now revealed that while his wife was "calm" during the birth, he had to eat chicken from Nando's.

Writing in his new memoir 'Spare', he said: "Meg was so calm. I was calm too. But I saw two ways of enhancing my calm. One: Nando’s chicken (brought by our bodyguards). Two: A canister of laughing gas beside Meg’s bed. I took several slow, penetrating hits. Meg, bouncing on a giant purple ball, a proven way of giving Nature a push, laughed and rolled her eyes. I took several more hits and now I was bouncing too! I could see the thought slowly dawning. Gracious, the husband’s had it all. “Sorry,” I said meekly."

Harry also claimed to have placed a photograph of his late mother Princess Diana - who died in a car accident at the age of 36 in 1997 - on a table in the delivery room and added that there was a "vibe change" when medical staff entered the room as Meghan gave birth.

He said: "The anaesthetist hurried in. Off went the music, on went the lights. Whoa. Vibe change!"

The Duke of Sussex went on to welcome baby Lili in June 2021 with the former 'Suits' actress but later joked in the memoir that in that instance he "didn't tough laughing gas (because there was none).’"
