Heartbreaking reality behind adorable pictures of cheeky Prince Harry aged two

Photographs show the toddler trying to climb stairs, befriending a dog and falling asleep on Prince Charles’ shoulder. The Duke of Sussex, 35, now has a youngster of his own – Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – with his wife Meghan Markle. But the prince, who grew up in the public eye as the younger son of the Prince and Princess of Wales, cannot escape his own adorable baby pictures.

Uncovered from the Daily Mirror's picture archive from 1986, the cheeky young Harry can be seen getting up to various antics.

These pictures show Harry, the toddler in the striped t-shirt, at nearly two years old on holiday in Palma, Majorca, with his parents Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and brother Prince William.

The royals were guests of King Juan Carlos and his wife Sophia and were pictured with them at the Marivent Palace, the summer residence of the Spanish royal family.

The pictures, taken on August 9, 1986, show Harry making friends with the family dog Arkie.

The next set of pictures show Harry in a coat on some stairs with Diana behind him.

These shots were taken the day before Harry turned two after he and his mother arrived at Heathrow Airport in the Queen’s Flight Andover aircraft.

The pair had flown from Aberdeen at the end of the family’s annual holiday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, while William flew separately with his nanny Barbara Barnes.

A determined and inquisitive Harry can be seen trying to climb back up the stairs to the aeroplane.
