British Royal Family

Archie had a surprise visitor that we all missed, and they've just revealed an adorable trait he has

We're finding this very easy to imagine.

Since his birth at the beginning of May it's no secret that baby Archie, the adorable newborn son of Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, has had a slew of very exciting visitors.
From the likes of tennis legend Serena Williams and Meghan's best pal and stylist Jessica Mulroney, to the revered members of the royal family themselves, including Prince Charles, Prince William, the Queen and Duchess Catherine.
But it seems there's now another exciting new visitor we can add to Archie's list of admirers who've seen him in the flesh, and they've only reiterated just how special he really is.
Joining Prince Harry at a special event in London this week was the celebrated Dr. Jane Goodall, the renowned British primatologist and anthropologist.
Their connection was clear, with the pair chatting together like old friends as they attended a meeting at the Roots and Shoots program in London.
And during their conversation, a rather important snippet of information came up: Jane has already met baby Archie!
Indeed the incredible 85-year-old revealed she had enjoyed her own little cuddle with the baby earlier in the British summer, explaining that he was "very cute and very gentle."
Going by the sweet photos we've already seen of the newborn royal, we can't say we're surprised!

During their conversation, Jane also revealed Meghan's sweet fan girl moment she had upon meeting her for the first time.
"She told me she's followed me all her life. She told me, 'You've been my idol since I was a child. I've hero worshipped you all my life,'" Goodall said.
As a passionate advocate for social and environmental causes herself, we can't blame Meghan - Jane is a powerhouse of inspiration in her own right!

Jane and Harry's special bond was clear throughout the event, with Jane explaining: "We talked about Roots and Shoots and I said, 'Of course you're interested now, you have a baby,' and he said, 'Of course!' "
The animal welfare activist continued: "When you bring a child into the world, you have to worry about the future. If we don't make change, we don't have a future. It's as simple as that."
In a lighter moment, the doctor also asked Harry if he had remembered a "chimp greeting" from their very first meeting, to which harry replied with a comical animal impression.
Some of their best moments were captured and shared by Harry and Meghan's Instagram account Sussex Royal, which you can view in the video below.
In the caption of the Instagram post, it read: "Today's event was full of education, inspiration and fun. Because working hard and playing hard are not mutually exclusive... 🐒"
We're loving the light-hardheartedness of this very special encounter!
It is understood Prince Harry will continue his efforts in conservation as he and Meghan kick start their brand new charity, which will be named Sussex Royal.
The pair have recently parted ways with the Royal Foundation, which will remain under the helm of Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
We can't wait to see what kind of inspiring work the Cambridges and Sussexes create under their separate charitable projects.
