Archie, age three, and Lilibet, age one, may reside in the US with their parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but Archie has previously had some adorable playdates with his cousins, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
The most touching outing we may have witnessed them share was in the summer of 2019, when Meghan and the Duchess of Cambridge brought their kids to Wokingham to watch Prince William and Prince Harry play in a polo match.
The occasion marked the first opportunity for royal admirers to see the then two-month-old in public with his cousins. The couple waited a while before introducing their three children to their baby cousin, even though William and Kate had already stopped by to see their nephew soon after his birth in May 2019.
The Cambridge kids had their first proper encounter with Archie at the polo match. HELLO! in fact discovered that by this time, George had already met his cousin, though the specifics of that encounter were never revealed.
Royal children frequently meet their relatives much later. In 2014, Mia, the child of Zara and Mike Tindall, wasn’t introduced to George until she was two months old.
View some of HELLOfavorite!’s images of Archie and his cousins from their polo day out.
Throughout the game, Archie dozed in his mother’s arms, but Prince George seemed to be keeping an eye on his young cousin at various points.
George was seen conversing with his aunt Meghan while sporting a green polo shirt. Perhaps the royal cousins will participate in sporting events one day, just like their fathers?
When Prince Louis, who was then one year old, was seen running around the field, Kate had her hands full. The Duchesses looked effortlessly stylish in an olive green linen dress by designer Lisa Marie Fernandez and Kate chose a pink summer dress with a pattern from L.K. Bennett for the match.
As Meghan and Archie watched Harry play, Louis was occasionally seen removing mother Kate’s sunglasses from her head.
Louis’s toddling toward his aunt and young cousin while sporting Kate’s Ray-Ban sunglasses made for many amusing moments during the game.
While talking with her sister-in-law, Kate could be seen smiling. Louis waved and stuck his tongue out.
During the game, Charlotte could be seen standing next to Kate, Louis, Meghan, and Archie. On the sidelines, she and George were seen playing football.
