“Archie was at Trooping the Colour,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively of the Saturday, June 8, parade in this week’s issue. “[It] was a chance for him to meet some of his cousins.”

Prince William and Duchess Kate’s youngest son, Prince Louis, made his Buckingham Palace balcony debut in the same outfit Prince Harry wore in 1986. The 13-month-old’s older siblings, Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 4, were also in attendance.

The insider went on to say, “The reason Harry and Meghan didn’t appear on the balcony when the Queen returned back to Buckingham Palace was because she was breast-feeding.”

During the parade, the former actress, 37, had a hard time being away from her baby boy. “She has spent almost every moment with him and saying goodbye was very difficult,” the source told Us. “But Meghan truly wanted to be at the celebration for the queen. … Meghan loved seeing all the other royal children and was doting on them.”

The new mom isn’t the only one who struggles to be away from her infant. The Duke of Sussex, 34, felt the same way at a May overnight engagement in Italy, the Sentebale ISPS Handa Polo Cup.

Harry left for Italy and it was very difficult for him to leave Archie and Meghan,” another source told Us at the time. “He wants to spend every second he can with them.”
