Meghan and Harry update royal fans on Archie’s exciting new milestones

Posted in Learning and Development.

Young Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor is growing up fast and his parents revealed a little more about his latest milestones yesterday.

Teeth, standing up, exploring!

Meghan and Harry surprised military families at the Broom Farm Community Centre near their home in Windsor with a visit in honour of Remembrance Day.

The couple spent lots of time getting down on the floor, playing with toddlers and chatting with other parents about the milestones Archie’s been hitting.

People magazine reports that Meghan chatted to one baby girl noting, “Look at all your little teeth! Archie’s just got two teeth!”

Pointing to her own row of sparkling bottom teeth she explained her son had, “two tiny ones, right there.”

It seems only yesterday that Archie was born, but he’s already six months old and by all accounts a curious little guy.

Speaking proudly of their son at the same event Harry said Archie is “so busy, constantly wanting to stand.”

Meghan said he’s spending lots of time “exploring.”

Yesterday, The Duke and Duchess surprised their neighbours in Windsor at a coffee morning for military families in a community centre located in the heart of the Army housing estate. Every year during the month of November we pause to remember and honour all those who have served their country here in the UK, across the Commonwealth and around the world. Their Royal Highnesses also wanted to show support for the families of service personnel who are currently deployed overseas. As we lead up to Remembrance Sunday, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will join Her Majesty The Queen and other Members of the Royal Family at various commemoration events, including the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall and the Cenotaph. During the visit yesterday, Their Royal Highnesses met with young families who shared their experiences as parents and as couples who are often apart from their loved ones for months at a time. A reminder that a life of service does not simply describe the person wearing the uniform, but the entire family. #Remembrance #Lestweforget

Talking to a friend

Amy Thompson was lucky enough to meet Meghan during this visit and she said their chat was super-relaxed.

Speaking to Army & You magazine she explained: “My daughter Aeris is the same age as Archie and we talked about weaning and the children beginning to crawl – she’s just a normal mum and it was like talking to a friend.”

This down-to-earth attitude is in line with Meghan’s philosophy on how she wants to use her royal platform.

The Duchess spoke a little more on this earlier this week. She visited social enterprise Luminary Bakery recently and spoke to journalist Bryony Gordon from The Telegraph about her approach. 

“If I have learnt anything about Meghan in the time I have known her, it is that she is a doer, not a wallower,” Bryony reported later.

“She lives in the solution, not the problem. She told me that she didn’t want people to love her – she just wanted them to be able to hear her.”

Meghan told the women who worked at Luminary that real connection was what mattered to her most.

“One of the things I have realised since being here is that people have an expectation when I’m coming somewhere, so I’m like, let’s just be really relaxed, keep everyone nice and chilled because at the end of the day we’re all just women. We all have a story to tell, and I feel honoured that I am getting to hear yours.”
