As Dearly previously reported, Archie is Prince Harry and Meghan’s first child together. And unlike his cousins, he will not be given a title — not yet, at least.
Since his birth, Archie has reportedly met most of his close relatives including his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, his great-grandfather, Prince Phillip, his grandparents, Prince Charles and Doria Ragland, as well as his aunt and uncle, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
It’s unclear if William and Kate’s kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis have met their baby cousin.
