From the new-born photos to tales of teething and weaning, Prince Harry and Meghan embraced parenthood like the rest of us.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have, so far, excelled in their new role as parents.
The couple has laid down a few important rules on how to raise their firstborn. From prioritising family time to date nights, the duo is working hard to be the best mum and dad possible. Let’s take a look at their guide to parenting?
Privacy is key
Harry and Meghan are quite determined to provide their son with as normal an upbringing as possible. This would also mean protecting his privacy and keeping certain details to themselves. This includes the likes of Archie’s christening, who his godparents are, which hospital he was born in (The Portland Hospital, London) etc. The couple also decided not to give a royal title to baby Archie, in accordance with their wish that he grows up as a private citizen.
We will all agree to the fact that spending time with the family is very important. Baby Archie was acquainted with his relatives when he was just a few days old. He met the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla and Prince William and Kate within two weeks of the birth. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also keen for their child to develop a close relationship with his royal cousins Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

It’s ok to ask for help
Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland helped the Duchess after she gave birth. She lived with the couple at Frogmore Cottage for the first few weeks, showing Meghan the ropes and helping her settle into motherhood. When Doria returned to LA, Meghan Markle, obviously, wasn’t afraid to ask for extra help, enlisting a nanny to help her at home.
Eat organic as much as possible
Well, we all know how much Meghan Markle loves carbs, don’t we? Meghan even revealed that french fries are her favourite. But overall, the new mum is very health-conscious and tries to maintain a gluten-free and vegan diet. Personally I believe that Archie is going to be raised clean and green. She definitely loves to cook organic whenever she can.

Carry out charity work
Archie was a few days old when Prince Harry travelled to The Netherlands for his Invictus Games Foundation. The couple’s joint commitment to their charitable institutions is clear. While Archie will be raised a private citizen, the little boy will no doubt be instilled with the importance of charity work from his parents.
