Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always been naturals with young children, but in a new video shared by Sussex Royal, fans were able to see the new parents in action.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprised their neighbors in Windsor for a coffee morning for military families at the Broom Farm Community Centre ahead of Remembrance Sunday. But it was a candid detail caught on camera about baby Archie that really caught our attention.
While chatting with three adorable tots, a crouched-down Meghan can be heard in the video adorably talking to one little girl in particular about their six-month old son who was presumably back home at Frogmore Cottage.
“Yes! Look at all your little teeth!” the duchess says. “Archie just got two teeth, tiny ones right there!”

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
According to a report by Harper’s Bazaar, Meghan also spoke to fellow mom Amy Thompson, whose husband Brad is attached to the Welsh Guards.
The two bonded over having children of the same age and the royal mom-of-one revealed another exciting parenting milestone, Archie has started crawling.
“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 mom and it was like talking to a friend,” Amy told the publication.
The video also shows Prince Harry being his usual cheeky self, playing with the many children and their toys. Archie is one lucky tot to have such doting parents!
Army&You magazine, who exclusively covered the event, reported that former military man Prince Harry also spoke about the harsh reality of being away from one’s family while serving.
“It’s unbelievably hard. I have so much respect and admiration for anyone who has to deal with that,” he said, before adding that parents of young children must have a particularly tough time being away.
“I can’t imagine what it’s like to miss so much as they change so quickly,” the royal dad added.
In their Instagram post, Prince Harry and Meghan drew attention to the separation that many families face by sharing a poignant quote.
“A reminder that a life of service does not simply describe the person wearing the uniform, but the entire family.”
The duke and duchess also attended the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey for an official engagement to pay respect to those who have served in the armed forces.
They were meant to be accompanied by Prince Harry’s stepmother Duchess Camilla, however the royal was forced to pull out of the event due to a chest infection.
