While the other royals are yet to meet the new royal baby, Princess Diana's sister, Lady Jane Fellowes has already met the baby.
The world celebrated the arrival of the latest addition to the British royalty, baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Prince Harry and Meghan welcomed their first baby boy with joy and proudly presented him to the public on May 8 at the St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle. The royal couple who have always been particular of their privacy has also kept the newborn out of the spotlight.
According to a recent report by Harper Bazaar, Harry's aunt and the older sister of Princess Diana was among the first people to meet the baby. A Twitter post released by the Royal editor, Robert Jobson said that the 62-year-old sister of Diana, Lady Jane Fellowes was among the first family members to meet little Archie.
"Princess Diana's older sister Lady Jane Fellowes was one of the first family members to meet baby Archie #BabySussex," Jobson tweeted. Harry who was particularly close to his mother has used all the opportunities he could to pay tribute to her and her family. He has made sure that his mother's family was given importance in every important event in his life starting from his engagement to the birth of his son.
The Prince had specially invited the members of his maternal side and also invited Lady Jane to give a reading at the royal wedding during their wedding last May.
Making an exception from tradition, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex showed their reverence to Diana and her family by mentioning the Spencer family in Archie’s birth announcement along with Harry's paternal family members. "The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news," read the family's message.
Recently, the Mother's Day post on the official page of the royal couple shared a photo of Meghan holding Archie's tiny feet in her palm. The picture also featured Diana's favorite flowers—forget-me-nots— in the background.
This is yet another example of how the couple wants to keep the memories of Archie's grandmother Diana alive in their lives.
Baby Archie met his great grandparents earlier this week is yet to meet other close family members including Prince William and Kate Middleton. Based on a report by Metro, other royals, too, will be meeting the baby soon. "Sources confirm that Prince William and Duchess Kate will be meeting baby Archie for the first time early this week. Grandfather Prince Charles will be paying a visit a few days later," stated Omid Scobie through Twitter.
The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge who were thrilled at the arrival of baby, Archie are busy with official engagements reported Harper Bazaar.
