Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor might only be four months old, but he is arguably one of the most famous babies in the world right now. From the colour of his nursery at Frogmore Cottage, to his first holiday with parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, everyone wants to know as much as possible about the tiny royal.
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have occasionally shared cute updates about Archie, they like to protect his privacy and have been very careful about the details they share with the public.
So when Prince Harry decided to give a rare update about his son, fans were thrilled.
According to People, the Duke of Sussex was visiting a high school rugby program when a student asked: ‘Prince Harry, how is everything going with Archie?’
The new dad proudly replied: ‘He’s really well, thank you. And he is getting so big.’
Earlier this week, Harry and Meghan shared a previously unseen photo of their little one as part of a collage to celebrate Harry’s 35th birthday.
A grid of photographs on Instagram, alongside a special message from Meghan, delighted fans.
It read: ‘Wishing a very happy birthday to His Royal Highness Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex!’
Followers were quick to spot the family photo on the bottom right corner, a previously unseen snap of Harry and Meghan with baby Archie on his Christening. The day was kept private, as were the identities of his godparents, causing some controversy at the time – so fans were pleased that they were given a little insight into Archie’s special day.
‘Beautiful collage for a beautiful family,’ one person commented.
Another added: ‘Little Archie is a BEAUTIFUL BABY!!!’
A third said: ‘They are such a great family.’
Whether or not we’ll see a little more of Archie as he grows up remains to be seen, and while we adore the cute snaps it’s also important that we respect their decision to keep him out of the spotlight.
