The Duke of Sussex mimicked a stretching motion as the royal couple met the stars of Disney’s remake of the hit film The Lion King at Sunday’s Leicester Square premiere. The Prince was full of pride as he explained how his son had mastered a new skill before showing off the motion Archie does at home, Hello! reports.
Beyonce added: “He’s holding up his neck?” to which Harry responded that the newborn was not so little anymore.
Beyonce’s partner Jay-Z then gave the royals some key parenting advice, urging the pair to always find time for themselves as the musical couple left their children back at home in the US.
He added: “They are not here. They don’t come on every trip. We left them at home. They would have loved to have been here.”
Meghan and Harry have been embroiled in a privacy battle with the press and public since the birth of her first child in May.
Only two photographs were released of baby Archie’s christening and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have also decided to keep the names of the child’s godparents private.
The decision to break with royal tradition sparked outcry from commentators and the public as it also emerged Meghan and Harry had accepted millions in taxpayer cash to renovate their new home.
The couple faced fury for £2.4million worth of taxpayer-funded renovations to their Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
The buildings bespoke features were paid for by the royal’s but plumbing and electrical work was funded by the Sovereign Grant, a publicly funded purse for Royal Family affairs.
She has also faced criticisms for privately attending the Wimbledon Tennis Championships to watch friend Serena Williams in action.
Bodyguards were banning fans from taking images of the Duchess, despite BBC cameras clearly showing her in the stand.
But Archie was seen in a rare public appearance last week as Meghan went to watch Harry in a charity polo match. The Duchess was seen clinging onto her baby and was later seen smiling with her husband in a rare glimpse of family life.
Many royal commentators have backed Meghan’s stance, with Sangita Pater showing support for her decision to attend Wimbledon without the glare of the world’s media.
Speaking to ET Canada, she said: “One of the things I love is the fact she went out there to support her friend with her friends and it wasn’t because of other royals – it was something she wanted to do.
“She wants to enjoy it and the fact is, she wants to change the game the way the media works in the UK.”
Meghan’s child is seventh in line to the royal throne and is set to be automatically granted His Royal Highness (HRH) status when his grandfather, Prince Charles, becomes King.
