Kate Middleton and Prince William visited Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s home to meet their new nephew, Archie but did not bring their children with them because of reasons only parents would give.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met their nephew, Archie Harrison, at the Frogmore Cottage in Windsor on Tuesday. Although Kensington Palace did not confirm if their children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, came along, it is very doubtful that they have met Archie.
Kate came from Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes while William came from a meeting with United for Wildfire, before their visit. Harry also had his engagements that day in Oxford, including a trip to the children’s hospital, prior to meeting his brother and sister-in-law.

The probable reason as to why the kids were not invited to the meet and greet was because of the time it would take to travel to Windsor -- one hour to and from Kensington Palace, allowing them to miss bedtime and taking a toll on George and Charlotte’s school the next day.
According to a source, everyone in the royal family is “dying to meet” Archie, including the Cambridge kids. Hopefully they get to meet their cousin soon.
“Prince George and Princess Charlotte have already been asking their parents when they can meet their new cousin, they are as excited as anybody,” said the source.
Baby Archie, born on May 6, is the first British royal to be eligible for a U.S. citizenship, thanks to his mother. His name was revealed on the royal couple’s Instagram, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, being unique and distinct from traditional royal names.
He also does not have any royal title before his name, as decided by his parents so he will be referred to as “master.” until Prince Charles becomes King, then he will be a prince.
