“Meghan is enjoying days at home with Archie and is very much focused on family,” a source tells Us Weekly. “We all expected her to be thinking about work, but her life revolves around Archie at the moment.” The 37-year-old is currently on maternity leave, but she did take some time to make her first post-baby public appearance since the birth of her son at Trooping the Colour.
“She has spent almost every moment with him and saying goodbye was very difficult,” the insider explained. “But Meghan truly wanted to be at the celebration for the queen. … She loved seeing all the other royal children and was doting on them.”
The insider adds that while “spending so much time at Frogmore Cottage can be a little overwhelming at times,” the former actress is taking motherhood “one day at a time … and loving every moment” with her baby.
“He’s adorable and super chubby,” the source tells the outlet of the 1-month-old. “Very quiet, very well behaved. Doria [Ragland] said that Meghan was the same when she was a baby.” Aww!
Harry has been busy with his royal engagements — including attending the Royal Hospital Chelsea’s Annual Founder’s Day Parade as well as the Cricket World Cup opening match. And while the Duke of Sussex, 34, is of course all about his baby boy, he decided not to take paternity leave.
In the U.K., new fathers are allowed to take up to two weeks of leave, but since royal dads don’t usually have traditional jobs and working hours, they opt to not take the full time off, and instead return to work. Makes sense!
It is just great to hear how happy Meghan and Harry are as new parents!
