Prince Harry is a ‘girl dad’ but what does that actually mean?

Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, sported the attire in a new video to promote his new travel campaign. The development will see his eco-travel non-profit organisation, Travalyst, work with six top travel brands, such as Google and Skyscanner, to collect and display flight emissions data. 

What does ‘girl dad’ mean? 

According to the Urban Dictionary, a girl dad is a “father who wants his daughter(s) to have the same rights, opportunities, and privileges as any boy”.

In other words: “A Girl Dad empowers his daughter to carry on his legacy.”

Harry of course has one daughter with his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, called Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor. 

Lillibet was born on June 4 last year and is yet to have met her Grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, in person. 

During the promo video Harry can be seen wearing a grey t-shirt with the phrase girl dad embroidered onto it. 

The clip, which is almost five minutes long, sees the Duke jogging through the woods. 

One “rating agent” manages to stop him after screaming his name and various monickers multiple times – including “H”, the nickname his wife Meghan Markle revealed to use for the royal in an interview with Tom Bradby in October 2019.

Eventually, the Duke turns around where he’s revealed to be wearing the shirt, in what appears to be a sweet tribute to his daughter. 

The video also features Kiwi actors Rhys Darby, Dave Fane and Rena Owen and promotes the Duke’s new initiative for Travalyst where holidaymakers, rather than holidays, are rated on their level of sustainability.

Harry has said his new campaign is inspired by the Māori values of kaitiakitanga (guardianship and protection) and manaakitanga (to extend love and compassion). 

Both of these are concepts the 37-year-old has learned about during his trips to New Zealand over the years.
