The popcorn Prince: Harry shares a snack with youngster at Invictus Games

Prince Harry showed he had the makings of a fun-loving father in a playful encounter with his friend's young daughter at the Invictus Games.

The 33-year-old pulled faces at little Emily Henson and shared his tub of popcorn, entertaining the youngster with a laugh and a joke as they watched a volleyball match.

The prince was seated alongside Emily's mother Hayley Henson in the stands for the UK v Denmark match at the Mattamy Athletic Centre in Toronto, Canada.

Emily, the daughter of former Invictus athlete David Henson, who had both his legs blown off by an IED in Afghanistan in 2011, seemed enthralled by the prince's company.

The heartwarming snaps come just days after Harry and his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle were pictured walking hand-in-hand for their first official public appearance together.

The prince has previously spoken of his desire to have children one day.

In an interview with Good Morning America last year he said he hoped he was a "fun uncle" to Prince George and Princess Charlotte and said he "can't wait for the day" he has children of his own.

Prince Harry is set to welcome another niece or nephew next year following the announcement of the Duchess of Cambridge's pregnancy.
