The couple released further details, some of which were "saddening."
The Cambridge children hadn't met their baby cousin until that moment, according to one royal expert.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s three children met baby Archie for the first time when William and Harry played at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day, it has been revealed.

Prince George, then five, Princess Charlotte, four, and one-year-old Prince Louis were spotted playing together on the sidelines, as Kate and Meghan, holding their two-month-old cousin, stood side by side.
“You go back a couple of generations and it was literally like waxworks coming out, it was very stiff and there wasn’t much hands-on parenting at all.”
