The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, are growing up out of the spotlight, but Prince Harry and Meghan shared a fascinating glimpse into life with their young family in Montecito in their Netflix docuseries.

In one sweet scene from episode six, the couple can be seen holding hands with their daughter, Lilibet, dressed in a floral frock, as she toddles through their beautiful garden.

Meghan, wearing knitwear and denim shorts, can be seen crouching slightly to speak to her little girl, as Harry, clad in a polo shirt, shorts and a baseball cap, glances at his daughter as the trio follow Archie, who is running off ahead.

The little boy is joined by two of the family's dogs as he heads towards the trees on the Sussexes' Tuscan-style property, which boasts a swimming pool, a gym and a chicken coop and play area for the children.

Watch the adorable family moment in the clip below…

While Archie was born in London and spent the first six months of his life living in Windsor, Lilibet has only visited the UK once when the late Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in June 2022.

The trip also coincided with Lilibet's first birthday, with Harry and Meghan throwing their daughter a tea party in the garden at Frogmore Cottage, with Archie helping his little sister to blow the candles on a pink tiered cake. Take a look back below...

In the voiceover, Meghan can be heard reciting the speech she gave on her wedding day to Harry in 2018, which ended with her saying: "I appreciate, respect and honour you, my treasure, for the family we will create, and our love story that will last forever. So I ask you to raise a glass to the astounding assurance that now life begins, and the everlasting knowing that above all, love wins."

It's been a month of big celebrations for the Duke and Duchess having marked their son Archie's fifth birthday on 6 May ahead of their three-day visit to Nigeria.
