She may be a duchess but Meghan Markle, 38, was just another ‘normal mum’ when she mingled with other parents and their youngsters at a casual morning tea on Wednesday.
The royal and her husband, Prince Harry, gave military families the surprise of their lives when they dropped for a cuppa and a chat at a regular meet up at the Broom Farm Community Centre in Windsor.
During the visit - which saw Harry playing with tots on the floor - proud mama Meghan revealed two adorable updates about their own bub, six-month-old son Archie.
Archie’s two ‘tiny’ teeth
Archie, who was born on May 6, has already started cutting his teeth according to Meghan.
In a video shared on the couple's Instagram account featuring highlights of their visit, she told a group of youngsters, “Archie's got two teeth. Tiny ones, right there,” gesturing to her own mouth.
But that’s not the only milestone little Archie has reached, with Meghan telling a fellow mum that her son is beginning to crawl.
“My daughter Aeris is the same age as Archie and we talked about weaning and the children beginning to crawl,” attendee Amy Thompson told Army & You magazine.
“She’s just a normal mum and it was like talking to a friend,” Amy added.
The short clip and an accompanying selection of candid snaps show Prince Harry and Meghan at ease with the group who were delighted to welcome their royal ‘neighbours’ who live at nearby Frogmore Cottage.
One mum, Leigh Smith, called her daughter Molly’s time with Meghan an ‘amazing experience’.
“We had a party when Harry and Meghan got married and we've followed their story ever since. So it was an amazing experience for Molly to shake hands with them. It's really special and a lovely boost for the whole community,” Leigh said.
“Meghan promised not to tell anyone that I was off school. She asked me who my best friend was,” eight-year-old Molly added.
Harry opens up about ‘hard’ part of parenting
The 35-year-old prince, a former Army captain, sympathised with the soldiers who work overseas away from their families.
“It's unbelievably hard. I have so much respect and admiration for anyone who has to deal with that,” he said.
“I can't imagine what it's like to miss so much as they change so quickly,” he added.
The following day, Harry and his wife, along with hundreds of veterans and their families, paid tribute to those who lost their lives in service of their country at the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey.
