Someone VERY special just secretly met Harry and Meghan’s baby Archie

Posted in Family.

Well this is delightful news! While the comings and goings of visitors at Meghan and Harry’s Frogmore Cottage home are usually a mystery, one guest has shared a few details about her own royal pop-in.

Getting to know Archie

Dr Jane Goodall – scientist, legend and friend of all primates – revealed she had visited the Sussexes at home, spending time with the new little royal in his own habitat.

The brilliant 85-year-old confirmed that she had actually met Archie earlier this week, even having a snuggle with the famous and extremely popular bub.

“He’s very cute and very gentle,” Jane said on Tuesday, People magazine reports.

But that’s not all. Duchess Meghan was also thrilled to connect with Jane, telling her that she’d been a real inspiration to her.

“She told me she’s followed me all her life. She told me, ‘You’ve been my idol since I was a child. I’ve hero worshipped you all my life,'” Jane said.

Harry goes ape sh*t

Of course, we already pretty much knew that Prince Harry was a paid-up member of the Jane fan club too.
The Sussex Royal Instagram account shared some footage of Harry and Jane role-playing a chimp greeting a couple of days ago, and it was clear the pair were very fond of one another.
“She is a woman of kindness, warmth, immense knowledge and a softness that’s needed by mankind just as much as it is chimpkind,” he told media on Tuesday.
“I’ve been admiring her work since I was a kid, and it was so wonderful to find that she was even more amazing in person.”

A couple of captured moments between The Duke of Sussex and Dr. Jane Goodall at today’s event. The pair share an impromptu dance and ‘Chimpanzee Greeting’ which Jane taught The Duke when they first met. Today’s event was full of education, inspiration and fun. Because working hard and playing hard are not mutually exclusive… 🐒 For more information on today’s special event on Roots & Shoots, please see previous post.

“We know that [Prince Harry] is keenly involved in youth and global environmental issues and Dr. Goodall believes that his visit will inspire the participants knowing that someone of his stature is eager to learn of their efforts," the Jane Goodall Institute spokesperson said. "Those involved in @rootsandshoots are already making a vast difference in their countries to benefit the community, animals, including domestic animals and the environment we all share."

A new perspective

Jane says that Harry’s super into her Roots & Shoots environmental awareness program aimed at young people.
“I told him, ‘Of course you’re interested in Roots & Shoots, especially now you have a baby,'” Jane told reporters.
“And he said, ‘Yes, of course.’ When you bring a child into the world today you have to worry about the future. If we don’t make change we don’t have a future, it’s as simple as that.”
The Dr Jane Goodall Institute is also one of the Sussex’s 15 featured charities this month on Instagram. Brilliant.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.
