Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry all had events today, but they did manage to get together at Frogmore Cottage for a very special meeting. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge finally met baby Archie, Meghan Markle and Harry’s newborn. The Daily Mail‘s royal reporter Rebecca English confirmed the news, writing on Twitter, “Just to confirm that William & Kate visited their new nephew, #ArchieHarrison, at Frogmore Cottage today after #PrinceHarry returned from Oxford. Their children weren’t with them, however, so it will be a little while yet before George, Charlotte and Louis meet their new cousin.“
No photos were shared of the visit yet, but Meghan and Harry could choose to share one snap on their SussexRoyal Instagram in the coming days. The couple already shared a photo of Archie meeting his great-grandmother, the Queen, when they announced his name.
Kate and William spoke glowingly of their new nephew last week, just a day after his birth was announced. The two both told royal reporters at their Kings Cup Regatta launch event that they were looking forward to meeting the little guy.
William said that he was “obviously thrilled, absolutely thrilled [about Meghan and Harry’s new baby being born], and looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down. I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”
Kate echoed William, telling reporters that “it’s such a special time and with [my children] Louis and Charlotte just having had their birthdays, it’s such a great time of the year to have a baby,” she said. “And yes, spring’s in the air and everything so it’s pretty great. As William said, we look forward to meeting him [Baby Sussex] and finding out what his name is going to be. So it’s really exciting for both of them. And I’m wishing them the best in these next few weeks. It’s always a bit daunting the first time around.”
