Prince Harry privately had a milestone family meeting shortly after arriving in the U.K. this weekend ahead of Prince Philip's funeral, according to Us Weekly. The Duke of Sussex, an insider told the outlet, met his cousin Princess Eugenie's newborn baby boy August for the first time. Harry has been quarantining at Frogmore Cottage, where the meeting took place, ahead of the funeral.

The source didn't give Us any details about the meeting, nor has Eugenie confirmed it or posted about it on her social media.

Eugenie and Harry have largely kept details about their relationship private. But royal reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote in Finding Freedom about Harry's close relationship with Eugenie. She was one of the first people to find out about Harry dating Meghan Markle.

“Eugenie had always been more than just a cousin to Harry,” Scobie and Durand wrote of their relationship in Finding Freedom. “They were also the closest of friends. Out of all the Queen’s grand-children, Harry and Eugenie have one of the most natural connections. Like Harry, Eugenie is loyal, honest, and great fun. The two had many nights out together in London.”

“Harry had always confided in his cousin when it came to the women in his life,” they added. “Not only did he trust her implicitly, but friends say that she gives great advice and has always been 'beyond wise' for her years.”

Eugenie has shared four Instagrams featuring photos of her son August, who she welcomed in February. She shared two new shots of him in March:

Earlier today, Eugenie posted a tribute to her grandfather Prince Philip on her Instagram. She wrote:

Dearest Grandpa,⁣⁣
We all miss you. ⁣

You would be so touched by all the tributes that have been shared with me the past few days. ⁣

People remember sitting next to you at a dinner, or shaking your hand once, who remember you saying hello in passing, or remember how much their DofE award meant to them. ⁣

I remember learning how to cook, how to paint, what to read. I remember laughing at your jokes and asking about your spectacular life and service in the navy. ⁣
I remember incinerating the sausages and you swooping in to save the day.⁣
I remember your hands and your laugh and your favourite beer. ⁣

I will remember you in your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren. ⁣

Thank you for your dedication and love for us all and especially Granny, who we will look after for you. ⁣

With all my love ⁣
Eugenie
