During the ride, she wrote: "If he [Archie] forgets to say please or thank you, Meghan reminds him of the manners that make the man."

"They are teaching Archie that some people live in big houses, some in small, and that some are in between homes. They made kits to pass out with water and peanut-butter crackers and granola bars. 'I ate one!' Archie contributes."

The couple were away for 17 days in total, having visited Manchester and Germany for charity events before they heard of the monarch's sad passing. It's believed Archie and Lilibet stayed home in the US during this time, so we can only imagine how the big family reunion took place on their return.
