Prince Harry is just days away from fatherhood — and he can’t hide his excitement.

During a visit to a new youth center in London on Thursday, the royal dad-to-be, who is expecting his first child with wife Meghan Markle this month, was all smiles as he accepted a gift for the royal baby.

Lady Jayne Woodward, wife of former England rugby coach Sir Clive, handed Harry, 34, the gift for him and Meghan, 37, during the outing.

Lady Jayne would not say what the mystery gift was, but when she was asked whether Harry appeared nervous and anxious about the life-changing days ahead, she said, “Not at all, I think he’s just so excited.”

“He will make the most wonderful father. We’ve known him since he was about 13 and he’s a great chap,” she said.

Harry joined in a game of touch rugby along with Sir Clive in the sports hall of the Future Youth Zone, which he officially opened.

Harry also appeared emotional as he received another baby gift from Georgina Hart, 18, who told him his Invictus Games had inspired her to aim for the Paralympics.

Georgina, who has cerebral palsy, gave the prince a beautifully-wrapped silver birth certificate holder.

She said, “It’s our way to say thank you for everything he has done – he’s actually my favorite royal.

“I was telling him the Invictus Games inspired me to try club throwing for the Paralympics.”

Harry and Meghan recently moved into their new home of Frogmore Cottage in Windsor — just in time for baby.

“Windsor is a very special place for Their Royal Highnesses and they are grateful that their official residence will be on the estate,” a statement from the couple’s office said. After all, they tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle last May, and it’s where their engagement photos were taken.

“They’ll enjoy it much more in Windsor,” a family friend recently told PEOPLE. “They feel claustrophobic in their place in Kensington Palace.”

Moving to Windsor “is a really healthy thing to do,” adds a longtime friend, noting that the rigid constraints of Kensington Palace are not for all. “I presume it must be nice to get out and away,” explains the source. “Without neighbors who are all either family or staff [at Kensington Palace], they will now have their own thing.”
