PRINCE Harry charmed crowds of Oxford residents today as he visited some of the city's community and healthcare hubs.

Royal fans and families lined the streets outside Barton Neighbourhood Centre this afternoon, which was the last of HRH's three stops.

First the Duke of Sussex visited Oxford Children's Hospital, where former patient Daisy Wingrove, 13, presented him with an adorable teddy bear.

The gift was for HRH's newborn baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, and was one of many donated to the special guest during his tour of the city.

HRH arrived at the hospital, on the John Radcliffe site, at about 11am this morning.


He visited OXSRAD Disability Sports Centre at about 12.30pm and arrived at Barton Neighbourhood Centre about an hour later, before leaving at 2.45pm. 

The Duke shared baby talk with one young family at the hospital and said he is still getting used to the idea that he is now a parent.

HRH even found time to sit on the floor and play dinosaurs with two children.

Prince Harry's son Archie is just eight days old, and his Oxford visit is his first official UK engagement since the birth.

During the visit, the Duke met children and young people receiving treatment and the staff caring for them, as well as supporters of Oxford Hospitals Charity.

Plenty of people turned out at Oxsrad in Marston to meet Prince Harry, including some who met his late mother Princess Diana when she opened the sports centre 30 years ago.

The road outside Barton Neighbourhood Centre was decorated with bunting and Union Flags ahead of HRH's visit, and crowds lined the street in anticipation of seeing him.

Prince Harry crouched down to talk to schoolchildren as he arrived outside, as people waved Union Flags behind them.

He was inundated with drawings, paintings and congratulations cards as he walked past. Oxford Mail:
