Growing up so fast! Duchess Meghan (née Markle) and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, may only be 4 months old, but he’s already accomplished so much on his own. Believe it or not, the little one can officially support himself — literally, that is.
“At nearly five months, he’s already sitting up without any support for a few seconds, holding his toy bricks and Harry’s convinced that he can recognize himself in the mirror,” a source exclusively told Life & Style. In addition, Archie and Harry already bond and play games. “He giggles away when Harry plays Peek-a-boo with him,” the insider added. Aw!
It looks like the royal couple got very lucky because “Archie rarely cries. He sleeps throughout the night,” the source noted. We’re sure this is especially helpful now that the family of three are on their first royal tour together. The Suits alum and the duke are currently in Africa. According to their joint Instagram account, Meghan and Harry are “focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment.”
The tour kicked off on Monday, September 23, with its first stop in Cape Town’s Nyanga township. During their visit there, Meghan candidly connected with the people. “On one personal note, may I just say that while I am here with my husband as a member of the royal family, I want you to know that for me, I am here as a mother, as a wife, as a woman, as a woman of color, and as your sister,” she told the crowd. “I am here with you, and I am here for you.”
So far, Meghan and Harry have shared numerous photos of their time in Africa, which will conclude in early October. Hopefully, we’ll see photos of baby Archie before then. After all, this tour gives Meghan the perfect opportunity to work and play since she was able to bring her son along.
“Now that Meghan’s maternity leave has come to an end, she’s having to create a healthy balance between work and family life,” another source exclusively told Life & Style. “She treasures every moment she spends with Archie, who is the most adorable, happy, sweet-natured baby. Harry and Meghan say they couldn’t have asked for a more perfect son.” So sweet!
