The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have met their newborn nephew Archie more than a week after he was born.

The Daily Mail reported that Kate and William met Harry and Meghan's week-old boy for the first time today in a private meeting. 

Kate was given stuffed animal toys at an event earlier to take to her nephew.

Great-grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip, and grandmother Doria Ragland have already met the seventh heir to the throne.

Lady Jane Fellowes, Princess Diana's older sister and Archie's great aunt, was reportedly among the first to meet the royal baby.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are also yet to meet Archie. They are reportedly visiting him later this week.

In a similar fashion to the birth, Harry and Meghan kept today's meeting away from the public eye. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are still yet to confirm where Meghan gave birth.
