Prince William and Kate Middleton will meet royal baby Archie today

Prince William and Kate Middleton will meet royal baby Archie today

And he met his grandmother Doria Ragland, who was with her daughter Meghan for the birth.

However, there is another reason behind the Duke and Duchess' son's moniker - and it is a lot more sentimental than you first thought.

Harry, 34, met mum Amy Scullard and her children Emmett, three (who is in remission after being diagnosed with testicular cancer when he was two) and ten-week-old Ida at Oxford Children's Hospital.

"He said he's getting used to the baby and how Archie has fitted into family life".

Unfortunately, it wasn't without a slight oops, in which William, 36, and Kate, 37, were named the baby's parents instead of Harry and Meghan.

"He said he just feels part of the family and he can't imagine life without his son". The mother and son appear to be outside over a bed of tiny blue flowers, which have been identified as forget-me-nots, aka Princess Diana's favorite flower.

Earlier in the day, Prince Harry showed no signs of "the sleep deprivation society" as he visited the Oxford Children's Hospital.

Mr. Ratburn's gay wedding on PBS show 'Arthur' causes social media mania
In New York, one Twitter user's post highlighting Mr Ratburn's gay marriage, was "liked" more than 112,000 times in 21 hours. The educational show targets kids aged four to eight and often tackles hard topics families deal with in their daily lives.

The royal also met with some of the young patients and at one point, crouched on the floor to play with dinosaurs and later pretended to eat a balloon animal to make one of the children laugh.

But they said they were thrilled for Meghan and Harry, and couldn't wait to meet Archie.

"Harry and Meghan spent the weekend enjoying their first weekend as parents, celebrating Mother's Day, and had visits from a few friends", a Buckingham Palace representative told People on Monday (May 13).

The Duke and Duchess shared a sweet picture of baby Archie's feet on Instagram, along with a tribute to mothers "past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered".

Historian Kate Williams adds: "I think you also have to accept the fact that we may not be completely privy to everything that is going on".

The Duke of Sussex was quizzed about the wellbeing of his wife Meghan as he paid a visit to Oxford, just one week after becoming a father for the first time.
