Prince Harry is on the verge of fatherhood. Obviously, we have no way of knowing definitively what he'll be like as a parent. But we can look at all of the very sweet pictures of him with kids, and ooh and ahh about how adorable they all are. Shall we?

    Aw, this little guy looks like he's having a tough time of it. We're not totally convinced by the hand on the head, but Harry absolutely has the empathetic-but-firm posture down.

    Yes, dealing with kids means dealing with crying and temper tantrums. But you also get to share in their triumphs, which it looks like Harry's really getting into here.
