Despite his own challenges, Isaac has ADHD and Autism spectrum disorder, he is 'unfailingly kind and supportive' towards his sister.

He also set up a signing class at school to help Gwen communicate with her classmates.

During lockdown Isaac stepped up to help his family, his father a key worker, had to continue working whilst Cora had to retire due to ill health and she and Gwen had to shield.

The Duke of Sussex discussed fatherhood with Ed Sheeran, telling him having two children now 'was definitely a juggle'.

Harry gave an insight into family life describing his daughter Lili: “We’ve been lucky so far, she’s very chilled and seems happy to just sit there while Archie is running around like crazy.”

The Duke is back in the UK for the first time since the death of the Duke of Edinburgh and will join his brother Prince Williams to unveil a stature to his mother, on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.
