A very special visitor! Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry’s royal baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, met his grandfather, Prince Charles, on Thursday, May 16, Us Weekly can confirm.
The Prince of Wales, 70, recently returned from an overseas trip to Germany with Duchess Camilla.
Charles gushed over his grandson’s arrival to reporters in Berlin on May 7. “We couldn’t be more delighted at the news, and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return,” he said.
Two days prior to Charles’ visit, the little one was introduced to his uncle, Prince William, and aunt, Duchess Kate.
“Kate and William went over to Meghan and Harry’s to meet their new nephew in a private affair,” a source told Us exclusively.
The Duke, 34, and Duchess of Sussex, 37, welcomed their baby boy on May 6.
The first royal family member to meet Baby Sussex was Prince Philip on May 8, moments before the Suits alum and her husband posed for pics with their son for the first time.
“We just bumped into the duke as we were walking by, which was so nice,” the former actress told members of the press at her infant’s debut inside Windsor Castle. “So it will be nice to introduce the baby to the family.”
Harry added: “Another great-grandchild.”
Later that same day, he and Meghan revealed their son’s name with an Instagram post. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor,” the couple captioned a black-and-white photo of the Los Angeles native introducing her son to Queen Elizabeth II while her husband, 97, Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, and Harry looked on with smiles.
“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle,” the royal pair added. “The Duke of Edinburgh and the duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”
