Life as a dad of two is "definitely a juggle" for Prince Harry!

The Duke of Sussex attended a private garden party with winners of the WellChild Awards on Wednesday, ahead of joining brother Prince William for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue on what would have been their mother's 60th birthday.

During Wednesday's event, Prince Harry caught up with his pal Ed Sheeran, and the pair bonded over parenthood. The singer-songwriter spoke with Harry about being a dad of two to 2-year-old son Archie and daughter Lilibet Diana, who was born on June 4.

"Congratulations, a girl right?" Sheeran asked Harry, according to Hello! magazine. "We just had a little girl 10 months ago now. You're still in the trenches now! How do you manage with two?"

"Two is definitely a juggle," responded the prince, 36.

Speaking to another guest, Prince Harry revealed that Lili, as he and Meghan Markle plan to call their daughter, was "very chilled."

"We've been lucky so far," he said. "She's very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy."

In a statement released following Wednesday's event, Prince Harry spoke about how much the organization has meant to him, especially after having children of his own.

"Since becoming patron of WellChild in 2007, this organisation and the people within it have held an extraordinarily special place in my heart," he said. "I wasn't a father at the time, and yet the stories of these children and parents transcended that. I didn't need to be a dad to feel the impact of this invaluable work. Now as a father of two, I feel all the more connected, inspired and in awe of the resilience of these families, who power through indescribable challenges with the support of WellChild."
