WATCH | 'What I need is a few mini rugby balls': Prince Harry wants Archie to play rugby


During a recent video call with the Rugby Football League to commemorate the group's 125th birthday, Prince Harry shared that he's 'loving' life in his new home in Santa Barbara, USA. 

A patron of the league, Harry spoke with coaches, players, and volunteers, telling them that he can't wait to start teaching his 15-month-old son Archie about the game. 

The only problem is finding rugby balls to purchase in the US. 

"Loving it. It's fantastic. What I need is a few mini rugby balls so I can get Archie involved with the game because at the moment it's impossible to find any. I've got a little bit of space outside which we're fortunate enough to have, so I need to get him playing some rugby league," Harry said.
