Kate Middleton and Prince William Set to Meet Baby Archie Today


It could be a message to everyone just to let them know that Grandma Doria is going to be a big part of Archie's life, whether that's part of royal protocol or not.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have met their new nephew Archie for the first time. "They wanted that personal space with their newborn".

The little girl presented the prince with a teddy bear, which was wearing an Oxford Children's Hospital t-shirt, and Harry appeared over the moon as he grinned.

While on a three-day tour of Germany the day after Archie was born, the proud grandfather spoke about the newest royal addition.

Parents typically wait at least a few days-if not weeks or months-before introducing their newborn children to extended family.

While there has been speculation surrounding baby Sussex's name; with some thinking Archie is an acronym of Meghan's real name Rachel, others believe Harrison means Harry's son - clever, right? There's nothing to see here, truly.

Prince Charles and Camilla are now the remaining senior royal family members yet to meet Archie.

Prince William joked last week that he welcomed his brother into the "sleep deprivation society" that is parenting.

But it is reported their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis did not join them for the visit.

Doria, who is said to be very close to her daughter, flew over from her home in Los Angeles before the birth of her grandson, and has been staying with the family at their home ever since. "Spring's in the air and everything, so it's pretty great".

There has been much speculation over whether or not Harry and Meghan would hire a nanny, with some suggesting they may opt for a less-traditional male nanny or even an American nanny later in the year.

One of the first visitors to meet Prince Harry and Meghan's son was Princess Diana's sister Lady Jane Fellowes.

The Instagram picture also had the caption: "Paying tribute to all mothers today - past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered".

Historian Kate Williams adds: "I think you also have to accept the fact that we may not be completely privy to everything that is going on".
