Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s 6-month-old son Archie is working on his royal smile!

The proud mom shared a new milestone for her son during a surprise outing with military families on Wednesday morning. As she met a group of young children at the Broom Farm Community Centre in Windsor, Meghan told one little girl, “Look at all your little teeth! Archie’s just got two teeth.”

She pointed to her bottom lip as she added, ”Two tiny ones right there.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex surprised the group at their regular weekly meet-up, which is held near the royal couple’s Frogmore Cottage home.

New mom Meghan used the occasion to swap parenting tips with other parents as she discussed Archie’s sleep patterns, teething and crawling.

Amy Thompson, whose husband Brad is attached to the Welsh Guards, told Army & You magazine: “My daughter Aeris is the same age as Archie and we talked about weaning and the children beginning to crawl – she’s just a normal mum and it was like talking to a friend.”
