The Duke and Duchess of Sussex told the world about the birth of their baby on Instagram, and Harry made an announcement near their Windsor home. Before they shared the news with fans across the globe, they first had to tell The Royal Family and friends about the birth. While you might think the Royals have a fancy way of making big announcements, it was actually pretty normal.
Like the Tindalls, we think Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are also probably in the group as Harry and William are very close to them.
Mike told the Telegraph: “He’ll be a great dad. Obviously, he’s godfather to Lena, but we’ve got a great group of young ones in the family now. Lena and obviously Louis are similar ages and Mia’s sort of in between Charlotte and George, and then you’ve got Peter’s children Savannah and Isla who are just a little bit older. Harry, he’s busy, but he loves playing with them all and he’ll be a good dad.”
William and Kate are due to meet Archie for the first time this afternoon at Frogmore Cottage. Their children are also very excited to meet their little cousin, with a source saying that they keep asking about him.
The source told the Mirror: “All of the family have been dying to meet little Archie and are really excited to finally congratulate Harry and Meghan in person. Harry’s family wanted to give him and Meghan some time to settle into family life and Meghan’s mum Doria is still staying with them as the baby gets used to his surroundings.
Prince Charles and Camilla were in constant contact when they were in Germany and are so excited to spend some time with the new family. William and Kate are also really looking forward to paying a visit as are their own three children. Prince George, 5 and Princess Charlotte, 4, have already been asking their parents when they can meet their new cousin, they are as excited as anybody.”
