The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their baby boy Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor last week.

While the couple posted a beautiful photo of the moment the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh met their eighth great-grandchild, alongside Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, they are expecting more royal visitors this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to meet their nephew this week, according to royal commentator Omid Scobie.

He told Good Morning America: “Archie’s first week at home with mum and dad was quiet, they wanted that personal time with their newborn.

"This week it's all about the visitors with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting tomorrow [Tuesday] and the Prince of Wales visiting later this week.”

Kate and William had joint engagements in London and Wales last week, while the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were on a four-day visit to Germany.

During an engagement at the Cutty Sark in Greenwich, William said he was “thrilled” about his new nephew.

He joked: “I'm very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”

When asked if he had any pearls of wisdom for his younger brother as a father of three, William laughed and said, "Plenty of advice, plenty of advice, but no I wish him all the best and I hope the next few days they can settle down and enjoy having a newborn in their family and the joys that come with that."

Mum-of-three Kate added: "It's such a special time, obviously with Louis and Charlotte just having had their birthdays.”

“It's such a great time of year to have a baby, spring is in the air.”

The Duke of Sussex will also break his paternity leave for a day of engagements in Oxford.
