It’s taken them an entire week, but it looks as though Prince William and Kate Middleton have finally met the newest member of the British royal family. New reports say that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stopped by Frogmore Cottage to visit Prince Harry and Meghan Markle along with their newborn baby, Archie Harrison. The young tot was born during the early hours of Monday, May 6.
According to Fox News, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hosted William and Kate in their home on Tuesday. However, the Cambridges were without their children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and 1-year-old Prince Louis. The royal couple was nonetheless delighted to meet Harry and Meghan’s young baby in what sources say was a pleasant meeting between the Dukes and Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex.

Recent reports have hinted at a rift between Prince William and Prince Harry. Sources say that Harry was none too pleased when his brother tried to warn him that he was moving too fast in his relationship with Meghan Markle back in 2016. However, other reports indicate that William might also be envious of all the attention that Harry and Meghan have been getting in the media lately.
With that said, sources close to both royals say that Prince William and Prince Harry are willing to put their differences aside for the sake of their children. That’s because they want them to grow up together behind closed doors at Kensington Palace and Harry and Meghan’s new home at Frogmore Cottage near Windsor Castle.

🧂 In Anglesey The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt, a thriving local business which has been operating for over two decades, and won The Queen’s Award for Sustainability in 2017. The Duke and Duchess saw the salt making process from hand harvesting to packaging, and learned more about Halen Môn’s collaborations with other local food producers, and their involvement in community initiatives.
“William and Harry will want their children to know their cousins and do things together so they will work harder at their relationship,” a source close to the royal family said, according to Fox News. “The brothers will have a different kind of relationship and move on.”
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the supposed feud between Prince William and Prince Harry but many have noticed that the two brothers have been keeping their distance from one another during their public appearances.
While Harry and Meghan have hinted that they would like to raise Archie Harrison as a private citizen, there’s a good chance that the young boy will accompany his parents during their royal engagements, family celebrations and public appearances in the future.
