It sounds like baby Archie Harrison just reached one of his first milestones! While attending the highly anticipated London premiere of The Lion King on Sunday, July 14, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle proudly revealed to Jay-Z and Beyoncé that their little bundle of joy has officially mastered holding his head and neck up.
The Duke of Sussex gushed of their 2-month-old son’s accomplishment while meeting the hip-hop power couple for the first time, according to a video shared by royal expert Omid Scobie. After Beyoncé told Meghan, 37, and Harry, 34, that their son was “so beautiful,” the doting dad mimicked Archie by lifting his head and stretching his neck.

Harry then recreated his reaction to his son keeping up his little noggin by excitedly clapping and cheering him on after the “Single Ladies” singer, 37, responded, “He’s holding his neck up?” Looking at his wife, Harry also gushed that their little royal is actually “not so little anymore.” Aww!
The royal couple was offered some wise parenting advice from Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who are the proud mom and dad of Blue Ivy Carter, 7, and their 2-year-old twins, Rumi Carter and Sir Carter. “The best advice I can give you, always find some time for yourself,” the “Empire State of Mind” rapper shared.
Meghan and Harry’s lavish movie premiere outing at Leicester Square in London comes just days after baby Archie’s first public playdate with his cousins. The former Suits actress brought her little man to The King Power Royal Charity Polo Day on Wednesday, July 10, to cheer on his dad and uncle Prince William. During the sporty outing, Meghan was spotted enjoying some quality time with Kate Middleton and her kids, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1.
Although Meg has put her maternity leave on pause to attend events since baby Archie arrived on May 6, a source recently told Us Weekly that the doting mama likes to spend as much time with her son as possible. “Meghan is enjoying days at home with Archie and is very much focused on family,” an insider told Us Weekly. “We all expected her to be thinking about work, but her life revolves around Archie at the moment.”
We can’t wait to hear all about the future milestones baby Archie will accomplish!
