Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor may be one of the most famous babies in the world—his parents are out here sharing his milestones with the likes of Beyoncé and Jay-Z—but to Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, he's simply their adorable little cousin.
Us Weekly reports that George and Charlotte are especially taken with the newest member of the royal family. "They dote on him,” a source told the magazine. “Charlotte treats Meghan and Harry’s son like a little doll and is always asking after him.”
Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle recently took all the kids to watch their fathers, Prince William and Prince Harry, play in a celebrity polo match—and from the photos, it looks like a good time was had by all. Even Prince Louis got in on the action, playing with his mom's sunglasses and making faces for Aunt Meghan and Archie.
Us Weekly also reports that George, who will turn 6 on July 22, and Charlotte, 4, also include their little brother in playtime. But it sounds like Charlotte may be running the show. "Charlotte’s a bit of a tomboy and loves climbing and sports,” their source said. “Although Charlotte’s much bossier than George, she looks up to him. They squabble over small things like toys, but the majority of the time they get along.”
Recent reports indicate that the splitting of the royal households has eased whatever tension might have been present between the Cambridges and the Sussexes. Middleton and Markle, who have been the subject of many a tabloid headline about a "royal feud" are apparently getting closer, too. “They’re each a little more relaxed,” a source says. “They have more in common now.”
It's not surprising, then, that the royal cousins are also bonding. Harry and William are famously tight with their own cousins—Zara Tindall, Peter Phillips, Princess Beatrice, and Princess Eugenie. After all, who else could truly understand what growing up in the royal spotlight is actually like?
