Prince Harry: 'I Would Love to Have Kids'

"I think the key is . . . to be able to stay in touch with your childhood side," the royal said in a new interview

Prince Harry reiterated that he’s ready to start a family in an interview with The Telegraph‘s Mad World podcast.

“Of course, I would love to have kids,” he told podcast host Bryony Gordon.

And he’s got experience, too: Harry also said he’s already a godfather to five or six of his friends’ children.

When asked if he was a good godfather, he says “I’d like to think so.”

“I think the key to that is to be able to grow up, but also be able to stay in touch with your childhood side,” Harry added.

He bonds with his godchildren by embracing that attitude — and by playing PlayStation with them, too!

“If that means going to someone’s house, sitting there and playing PlayStation, kicking the ass of their son on CounterStrike, or Halo, or whatever it is, then I’ll try and do that,” he says — though he admits he’s a little out of practice.

In the past few years, Harry, who is currently dating Suits star Meghan Markle, has been vocal about hoping to have children in the future, though he’s adamant that there’s no rush.

“There have been moments through life, especially when we do a tour abroad, when I think, ‘I’d love to have kids now,’ ” he told PEOPLE last year. “And then there are other times when I bury my head in the sand going, ‘All right, don’t need kids!’ There’s no rush. I think, I tell you what: There’s been times I’ve been put off having children.”

In the meantime, he told PEOPLE he hopes to be a fun uncle to Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

“Nobody wants to be boring.”
