We always knew Prince Harry would be a natural dad, but now we know just how much! The red-headed royal joined his son Archie and wife Meghan Markle at a playgroup (where British folk bring their preschool kids to mingle and play) session near their Windsor home of Frogmore Cottage for the very first time. And he wasn’t the only dad in attendance.
“There were a couple of other dads there — he wasn’t the only dad there!” a source told People magazine. But to make matters even cuter, The Daily Express reported that Archie has already made a few friends — with some fellow redheads no less!
According to a source who spoke to the publication, “Archie had a fantastic time. He was crawling around and was particularly taken with two other red-haired babies.”
And as a red-haired icon himself, Prince Harry was chuffed with the source adding, “The Duke said: ‘Gingers stick together!'”
Meghan, who has attended this playgroup with the six-month-old before, spoke about Archie’s time there at the WellChild Awards alongside Harry last month.
“It was a lot of fun,” the Duchess of Sussex said. “He loved it.”
Of course, Archie isn’t the first royal tot to have had fun at playgroup. Back when he was just eight months old, Prince George was all smiles as he attended a playgroup hosted by The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society in Wellington during the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s royal tour of New Zealand.
Prince Harry and Meghan are far from your typical royals and have made an effort to give Archie as much of a normal childhood as possible.
The royal family of three were even spotted out and about at their local pub, the Rose and Crown, which is located just 10 minutes away from their Frogmore Cottage home.
Harry and Meghan, along with an assistant and two protection officers were spotted at a table with Meghan “cradling Archie most of the time,” according to an onlooker.
As for Archie? The source added that “The little lad was as good as gold, I didn’t hear him cry once while he was there.”
At a recent coffee morning for military families, Meghan revealed just how much little Archie is growing.
In a video uploaded by Sussex Royal, the Duchess of Sussex can be heard adorably talking to one little girl in particular about her 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!”
