Prince George was introduced to his baby cousin Archie before his younger siblings, Princess Charlotte and toddler Prince Louis. HELLO! understands that Charlotte and Louis first met Archie at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Match in Wokingham earlier this month, but that six-year-old Prince George had already had an introduction. Prince William and Prince Harry were competing in the polo match, and Kate, Meghan and the children stepped out to cheer the royal brothers on.

The event was Archie's first official public outing. Harry and Meghan had introduced him to the world in a photocall at Windsor Castle when he was just two days old, but this was the baby's first public appearance. Archie looked adorable wrapped up in a blanket by Malabar Baby, while the Duchess, who gave birth on 6 May, kept it casual in an olive green shift dress.
