Prince Harry and Meghan Markle open up about baby Archie starting playgroup

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are one of the most-watched couples in the world, and especially since the arrival of their baby son Archie, they never fail to make viral news.

This week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a lot of news around baby Archie, but it wasn't Prince Harry welling up on stage when talking about his baby son or the rumours that the family-of-three were considering a move to Canada that got people talking. Instead, it was the couple opening up about baby Archie's playgroup, something he has reportedly just started.

Yes, during Prince Harry and Meghan's recent attendance at London's annual WellChild Awards, they explained to a young award-winner and her mother that they had just taken their five-month-old son to his first playgroup class in Windsor.

Milly and Angela Sunderland explained, via HELLO!, at the winners' reception that the royal couple had disclosed a lot of details about their son's class.

'She took him to one of these baby classes today and she said they had loads of fun together,' the mother and daughter explained of their conversation with Meghan. 'She said it was really good fun.'

The conversation then apparently went on to red hair, with Angela continuing: 'Meghan said he has [ginger hair] and Harry said he definitely is, you can see it in his eyebrows.'

She continued: 'Harry said he’d had no hair for five months, but Meghan told him she had taken him to the playgroup and she said there were other children there with the same amount of hair or even less.'

It sounds like we need to see photographs!
