Baby Archie may have been born more than a week ago, but it seems the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's busy work schedule has meant meeting their new nephew has had to wait – until now!
Even before meeting Archie, William and Kate both expressed their eagerness to meet their new nephew, with Prince William joking he was very pleased to welcome his brother Prince Harry to the "society of sleep deprivation that is parenting."
He said he was "looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down."
Duchess Kate added they were looking forward to meeting him and finding out what was name is going to be, as at the time Archie's name had not yet been announced.
The Queen and Prince Philip, Archie's great-grandparents, were the first among the royals to meet him and the precious moment was captured in a beautiful photograph which Harry and Meghan shared on their Instagram page, along with the announcement of his name.
The black and white photograph shows Meghan holding Archie, while the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Harry and her Meghan's mother Doria Ragland all look on lovingly.
Prince Charles is said to have not met his grandson yet, but according to People he's due to pay a visit to Frogmore Cottage on Thursday.
Before meeting baby Archie on Tuesday afternoon Duchess Kate had visited Bletchley Park, the World War II spy base where the Enigma code was broken.
Kate's own grandmother and great aunt, Valerie and Mary Glassborow, both worked at Bletchley during the war and have become the latest additions to Bletchley's Codebreakers' Wall of Honour.
Prince Harry also had a prior engagement in the morning, where he headed to Oxford to highlight the positive work being done in the city for young children, disabled people and the community as a whole.
He visit included meeting young patients at the Oxford Children's Hospital, re-opening the OXSRAD Disability Sports and Leisure Centre, a facility first opened by his late mother, Princess Diana, in 1989, as well as paying a visit to Barton Neighbourhood Centre, to see the work they're doing to support risk youth with access to education and employment.
During his visit to the Oxford Children's Hospital he also adorably revealed that he couldn't imagine life without baby Archie and left with a little balloon animal that a young patient gifted him for the new royal bub.
Earlier this week, to mark Mother's Day, Prince Harry and Meghan shared an adorable photo of Archie's feet, accompanied by a moving caption which read: "Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered.
"We honour and celebrate each and every one of you," and was accompanied by an excerpt from the poem Lands, by Nayyirah Waheed.
The photo also paid a touching tribute to Princess Diana, Archie's late grandmother, as photo was taken in front of a bed of forget-me-not flowers, known to be one of her favourite flowers.
