Archie takes America! The 6-month-old son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is heading stateside very soon, a royal source tells ET.
After the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge make their appearances in honor of Remembrance Day on Thursday, they will start their break from royal duties to "spend time together as a family," according to the source. As part of this bonding time, they will be heading to the United States to visit Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, and friends. This marks the royals' first visit to the U.S. as a family.
The couple has had a busy schedule of events, recently returning from their royal tour of Africa. They also visited families of deployed service men and women in Windsor, England, this week, and took part in the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey on Thursday in honor of Remembrance Day. They will also be accompanying Queen Elizabeth II to the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall this weekend.
At the military event on Wednesday, Meghan revealed to a well-wisher at the Broom Farm Community Centre in Windsor that Archie is crawling. Amy Thompson, whose husband Brad is in the Welsh Guards, said she and the Duchess discussed "weaning and the children beginning to crawl." Thompson praised Meghan, saying, "She's just a normal mum and it was like talking to friend." Meghan also revealed to a little girl that baby Archie has sprouted two "tiny" teeth already.
Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, took part in Remembrance Day events on Thursday, but they were not joined by Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
A Clarence House spokesperson said of Prince Charles' wife, “The Duchess of Cornwall has been told by her doctor to cancel her engagements owing to a chest infection which has got progressively worse over the last few days.”
