All eyes were on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they stepped out for their first interview as a family-of-three on Wednesday. Harry and Meghan introduced their baby boy to the world, and while all attention was turned to the newborn, there was in fact another member of the family nearby, who the couple bumped into just before their interview – Prince Philip.

Speaking from St George's Hall, Windsor Castle, the couple were quizzed about when they were going to introduce their son to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. "We just bumped into the Duke as we were walking by which was so nice," Meghan said. "So it'll be a nice moment to introduce the baby to more family and my mum's with us as well." Harry added: "Another great-grandchild."
