It’s always enjoyable to look at photos of Prince Harry as a baby. After all, the beloved royal was one cute little kid. Even though the handsome prince is all grown up now, we thought the news that he and wife Meghan Markle are expecting their own bundle of joy was the perfect excuse to look back at photos of baby Harry from when he was the newest addition to the royal family!
The Best Prince Harry Baby Photos
When you think about Prince Harry as a kid, it’s nearly impossible not to remember his beloved late mother, Princess Diana. From the moment Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984, it was clear that his mom adored him. Of course, that wasn’t shocking to anyone who watched Diana’s parenting skills with her firstborn, Prince William. But in the 2017 documentary film Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy ($12.99, Amazon), Prince Harry really opened up about what his childhood was like with a mom who was adored by so many people.
“She was our mum,” Prince Harry said in the film. “She still is our mum. And of course, as a son I would say this, she was the best mum in the world. She smothered us with love, that’s for sure.”
So it’s natural that many of the best baby pictures of Prince Harry also include Princess Diana. But those aren’t the only Prince Harry baby photos out there. The most brotherly Prince William and Harry baby photos show the two sharing a special bond early on, which was clearly important to both of them. And of course, there are a few photos of Prince Harry as a kid taking center stage alone in the image. Considering what an important figure he’s become for the royal family, we can’t say we’re surprised.
And now that Harry and Meghan are having a baby in the spring, we can’t help but be curious about what kind of adorable snapshots they’ll share after this exciting royal pregnancy is complete. We at least know one thing’s for sure: The new images are bound to be just as aww-worthy as these photos of Prince Harry as a baby. We can’t wait to see them!

Princess Diana's Royal Pregnancy Photo
We remember Princess Diana's pregnancy with Prince Harry like it was yesterday. It's hard not to when she managed to find the most stunning maternity clothes that we'd ever seen to dress her growing baby bump. For example, this maroon coat and saucer hat that she wore during her second royal pregnancy looked so timelessly beautiful that they'd probably still flatter a mom-to-be today. Pictured in this image at the Grand National race in 1984, it's hard to believe that she was seven months pregnant. Little baby Harry was just about ready to make his grand entrance into the world!

Prince Harry baby news spread all over the country — and the world — after the little one finally made his grand debut on September 15, 1984. Of course, everyone was thrilled to see Princess Diana and her then-husband Prince Charles leaving the hospital with their second precious baby boy. Although it's challenging these days to find a photo of a newborn baby Harry that shows his full face, we assume this probably has to do with Princess Diana keeping her son safe and warm, even if that meant using extra folds of the blanket if necessary.

But we have to say that the three-month-old looked absolutely adorable in the still images as well. This sweet photo of Prince Harry with his mother on the big day is just one example. We can't help but ooh and ah at the christening gown that the tiny royal is wearing. Even more importantly, we adore the gentle way that his mom holds him close in her loving arms.

Royal fans loved to see pictures of the whole royal family together, especially when Princess Diana and Prince Charles were holding their little ones close. This royal family photo from May 1985 is certainly a cute one. The royal parents and their kiddos had just climbed on board the Royal Yacht Britannia in Venice, Italy. When you think about it, it's no surprise that Prince Harry loves to travel around the world so much as an adult — he sure got an early start when he was just a baby!

In this image from August 1985, the beloved royal tenderly carries baby Harry as the royal family sets sail for the Western Isles. The sweet way that Princess Diana looks at her young son instead of all the flashing cameras coming her way truly makes this one of the most endearing royal snapshots — not to mention one of our favorite Prince Harry baby photos.

We see a lot of photos of baby Harry with just Princess Diana, but we don't get to see quite as many snapshots of him with just Prince Charles. This photo captures the warmth and love that the future king and his son have always shared. One of our favorite parts of this Prince Harry baby picture? It was just taken at home in Kensington Palace in October 1985. It goes to show that some of the best royal family photos happen right where they're most comfortable and relaxed. Psst: Can you believe baby Harry was already one year old in this picture?

Of course, we'd be remiss to reminisce about Prince Harry's childhood without fondly looking back at the special bond he always had with his big brother, Prince William. In this October 1985 snapshot, the sweet siblings can be seen playing the piano together right at home in Kensington Palace. We can only imagine what kind of clever "songs" these two must have come up with while brainstorming together as a team. It couldn't be clearer that their brotherly love would only grow stronger — and it's no wonder why the royal brothers remain so close to this very day.

We can't round up a list of photos of Prince Harry as a baby without giving him the center stage in at least one, right? This adorable snapshot captures baby Harry on a rocking horse in the playroom at Kensington Palace back in October 1985. We adore the curious look on his face as he enjoys his new toys just like any other little kid out there who likes to play. And of course, we can't get enough of those adorable tiny overalls. We have to wonder if Princess Diana picked them out for him?

Considering how much love and support she gave him throughout her all-too-short life, it's no shock that he turned out to be such an incredible man. We're sure she would be so proud of all he's done today. And based on the parenting the young royal received from his mom, we won't be surprised if Prince Harry will be one of the best dads ever to his little one when he or she finally arrives.
