William and Kate finally visit Archie after 'strange delay'


Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, seventh in line to the throne, was born weighing 7lb 3oz on 6 May.

"Prince George and Princess Charlotte have already been asking their parents when they can meet their new cousin, they are as excited as anybody", a source told The Mirror.

A palace rep confirmed to PEOPLE that the private gathering took place today, with William and Kate paying a visit to new parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at their Frogmore Cottage home.

Harry, who met local residents at the Barton Neighbourhood Centre, was congratulated by one well-wisher Fatma Sheikh, a mother-of-three, who told him: "You done good". Their most recent post, published Sunday, is in honor of Mother's Day and includes a snap of Archie's feet. Archie managed to convince the Queen's grandsoon to stay in the armed forces and helped to keep the news Harry was deployed in the battle zone out of the public eye, which Harry is forever grateful for.

We bet Harry and Meghan can't wait for Archie to meet William and Kate!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at the Windsor home shortly after Harry returned from a series of engagements in Oxford, where he visited Oxford Children's Hospital.

The duo still remain close friends, with Archie making an appearance at his and Meghan's royal wedding in May past year.

She said: "It makes flawless sense Harry wants to protect his child from ever being used as a pawn as some part of palace skulduggery". The couple have been very excited to meet their nephew, and expressed their joy when they were at the Cutty Sark in London to announce The King's Cup Regatta last week.

He also revealed his newborn is keeping him up at night. "We're looking forward to seeing them in the next few days".
