It is possible to read a lot into the media’s handling of ‘news’ that the prince has been on nappy duty. But how does he compare to other famous fathers?
Nobody thought it possible, but it has finally happened: a man has changed a nappy. In undeniable proof that the British royal family was chosen and anointed by God, royal sources have confirmed that Prince Harry has attended to the nappies of his young son Archie.
This is big, epoch-defining news, which explains why it made the front page of the Sunday Times and has elsewhere been reported as a “royal REVEAL”. If the breathless media reporting is anything to go by, you would think that it was a scientifically proven fact that men lack the complex motor skills necessary to wipe a baby’s backside and then fasten two pieces of Velcro-style adhesive.
