Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child together last month, naming their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The couple introduced baby Archie to the world two days later, posing for photographs, but other than a sweet Mother’s Day Instagram, we have been without baby updates, with speculation rising around everything from Godparent choices and nursery colour palettes to baby fashion brands favoured by the royals.

This week, we all got a parenting update from a source close to the Sussex family via PEOPLE - and it’s lovely.


‘Meghan is glowing and radiant,’ the source explained to the publication of Meghan since having Archie. ’And, of course, everyone wants to meet the baby.’

Yes, Archie is proving popular, with friends and family members lining up to meet the newborn, with one of the most recent being Harry’s Argentine polo player pal, Nacho Figueras.

‘The Duke is the kind of father I always imagined he would be,’ Nacho announced of his friend, via PEOPLE. ‘He has always had a great love for children and a great understanding of them. I noticed that becoming a father has influenced him and his dedication and love for the project is now stronger than ever.’

‘I’ve heard from very reliable sources that the new nanny who has now been appointed by the Sussexes has had to sign quite an extensive non-disclosure agreement,’ royal expert Katie Nicholls told Entertainment Tonight.

According to the royal expert however, Meghan is a very hands-on mother, something that having a nanny won’t change.

‘Meghan’s been up in the night nursing, feeding on demand every few hours,’ the expert explained. ‘Apparently, he’s a hungry little baby.’

We hope Meghan is enjoying her maternity leave and we can’t wait to see baby Sussex soon!
