It feels like only yesterday that we were celebrating the arrival of baby Archie after the exciting news was announced by Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.

But in the two-and-a-bit months since his grand arrival, we’ve already seen him celebrate some important milestones.

First came the official photo call, where we first laid eyes on his adorable little face.

Then came his christening, which was a sight revered around the world as pictures from the day were dropped for all to see.

And now, it looks like little Archie has reached yet another milestone, and this time, it’s one we wouldn’t have otherwise known about but for a very lucky conversation.

On Sunday evening, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry thrilled the world by stepping out together on the red carpet for the Lion King European premiere in London.

While seeing Meghan, who was wearing a heavenly black Jason Wu dress, created enough excitement on her own, there was another, rather epic moment of glee for fans when the royal met none other than the queen of music, aka Beyoncé.

Prince Harry of course joined her in this glorious moment, and in doing so, revealed something else very exciting about his and Meghan’s new baby.

Meghan and Harry made a dazzling red carpet appearance at the London premiere.


Speaking to Meghan, Beyoncé told her that Archie is “so beautiful”.

The singer, who was also there with her husband Jay-Z, then engaged the royals in an animated conversation about parenthood.

According to several media outlets, Prince Harry was seen mimicking baby Archie by stretching his neck.

Beyoncé responded to him: “He’s holding his neck up?” To which Prince Harry replied by saying that his new son was “not so little anymore”.

Too cute!

The pair met Beyoncé and Jay-Z in a moment that sent fans wild.


The fab foursome also chatted about where Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s children were, and they explained that they had left them at home despite the fact they would have loved to come to the premiere too.

And in another special moment, Jay-Z was heard giving Harry some wise advice about parenting.

“The best advice I can give you, always find some time for yourself,” he told him.

There’s no denying the musical golden couple are well versed when it comes to parenting, with the pair sharing three children together – Blue Ivy, seven, and twins Rumi and Sir who are two-years-old.

Meghan and Harry have had a busy month of engagements.

Earlier in July, the pair celebrated Archie’s big christening, where they revealed some beautiful photos from the day to the world.

They were then spotted at the polo a few days later where Prince Harry was playing against his brother Prince William.

It’s expected that the couple will take some much needed R&R now to enjoy the British summer, before Meghan returns from her maternity leave in September or October.
