  • Even though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry didn't bring Archie with them to England, Meghan has been sharing updates about the royal baby.
  • Meghan recently shared that Archie is now trying to walk, which is obviously adorable!

Hi, hello, please stop everything that you're doing, cause I have some Archie updates for you—and sure, they're pretty brief, but we'll take what we can get at this point!

Even though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided not to bring Archie with them to England for their final round of royal appearances, Meghan has been sharing some new information about their son.

During an appearance at a school, Meghan told one of the attendees that Archie is growing out of his crawling stage. Ms. Dear, the woman who spoke with Meghan, shared with Daily Mail, "I just had to ask her about the baby. She said to me, 'He’s exactly ten months today and he’s started trying to walk.'" But that's not all that Meg spilled! A student at the school also told the outlet, "She was talking about how having Archie has changed her life and how important motherhood is." Aww! And of course, this all comes after Meghan's previous update that Archie is "into everything" at the moment.

However, Meghan and Harry's decision not to bring Archie to England seems to have disappointed the Queen, who'd like to get to know her great-grandson. A source recently told Us Weekly:

The Queen would love to have a relationship with Archie, but it’s looking unlikely that will ever happen...The Queen’s worst fear is that she may never see Archie again. She is trying to stay optimistic about this situation.

So maybe this means that Archie will be returning to England with his parents soon!
