Prince Charles Meets Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s Son Archie for the First Time
Prince Charles, 70, excitedly visited his grandson, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry’s baby, Archie Harrison, on Thursday, after his trip to Germany.
Prince Charles finally met his grandson, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on Thursday, May 16. The 70-year-old prince visited Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, and their son in Windsor after arriving from prior engagements.
Rebecca English, Daily Mail's royal correspondent, tweeted:
"Meanwhile Prince Charles went to meet his new grandson, Archie-Harrison Mountbatten Windsor for the first time this afternoon. The prince visited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Frogmore Cottage."
He remained excited since the baby’s birth, eagerly telling reporters in Berlin that he was “delighted” upon hearing the news. He is the latest royal to meet Archie, who was born on May 6.
“We couldn’t be more delighted at the news, and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return,” he said while overseas with Duchess Camilla.
Charles and Camilla have been traveling on official royal business since the birth of baby Sussex, which is why they only met Archie recently.
Their meet and greet with the baby came only a few days after Prince William and Kate Middleton’s visit to the family of three on Tuesday, after their engagements.
William came from a meeting with United for Wildfire while Kate came from Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes. Unfortunately, they did not bring their children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis with them.
The kids had school the following day. Thus a visit to meet their cousin would have taken a toll on their sleep. However, the three siblings have been excited to meet their new cousin.
“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 a source.
