Ellen DeGeneres, the popular television host, met royal baby, Archie, and revealed that he resembles his father, Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Duchess and Duke of Sussex, married at a high-profile wedding in 2018 and were blessed with a baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6, 2019. Baby Archie has made quite a few high-profile friends in the last few months, including Ellen DeGeneres. Ellen is currently promoting Season 17 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show after enjoying her summer vacation.
During the debut of Season 17, she talked about her trip to London where she met Prince Harry and Meghan along with their four-month-old baby, Archie. The 61-year-old said that she fed Archie, which she enjoyed immensely. "I fed Archie, I held Archie," she said in a promo for her new season. She also commented on his hair and looks saying, "He looks like Harry — and he had more hair than I did at the time." Casually she added," He weighs 15 lbs., which is, the exchange rate, is 17 dollars here!"
Ellen, her wife Portia de Rossi and Meghan have been friends for quite some time now, primarily because they all love animals. They met at a Los Angeles dog shelter even before Meghan met Harry. Both couples are incredibly involved in environmental issues and hope to collaborate on a few projects soon. "Portia and I talked to them about all the conservation they are doing for wildlife. They are doing all this work in Botswana for elephants and I love that, and they like what I'm doing for the gorillas in Rwanda so we're gonna all do something together," said DeGeneres.
Archie's birth and his visitors have been kept quite secret, respectively. A few weeks after his birth, only the royal family members and Meghan's mother had been allowed to meet him. But, by early June, Meghan's closest celebrity friends stopped by and visited the royal baby. The list includes George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, Jane Goodall, and many more.
Ellen also took a dig at the recent controversy faced by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for taking numerous private jets saying, “They are so amazing, the cutest couple and so down to earth. I hate it, I see them get attacked and it’s not fair.” She continued, “They're two of the most compassionate people, they're doing so much good for the world."
