The British Royals, more specifically, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, a son named Archie earlier this year. And it’s no surprise that he’s growing up and interacting with other babies already. His parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took him to a playgroup for the first time ever, this week and reports state that the six-month-old had a ball of a time. The playgroup was located near to Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
A source close to the couple told People Magazine, “Archie had a fantastic time. He was crawling around and was particularly taken with two other red-haired babies." The news of the infant attending playgroup doesn’t come as a surprise. Last month, during an appearance at the WellChild Awards, Meghan mentioned that Archie would be visiting a playgroup soon. An article that has been published in the American Academy of Pediatrics journal Pediatrics also noted the importance of play and playgroups for babies. It said that such experiences are important for their development because they contribute to the kids’ cognitive, social, emotional, and physical well-being. Parents Prince Harry and Meghan are making sure that they leave no stone unturned in raising their child.
While it’s exciting to see the Royal baby have some fun at playgroups, it’s also been reported that the Duchess of Sussex is already expecting baby number 2. Prince Harry was on a visit recently where he met families of deployed servicemen and women. During the visit, he spoke to one of the mothers, Susie Stringfellow, and showed interest in knowing how she managed two children at the same time. Speaking to Forces Network, Susie revealed that she and a few other mothers got candid with Harry about parenting and urged him to have a second baby.
