Baby Archie Harrison is officially six-months-old today. The adorable little royal is still a tiny tot but apparently he’s already reaching major milestones.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son is already trying to talk. A source told US Weekly that Archie is the best baby.

They said, “He’s a strong baby and you can tell he’s super smart. He can sit up without support and roll over, and he’s almost crawling. 

“He can’t talk yet, but he’s trying!” they revealed.

Just when you thought little Archie couldn’t get any cuter, he does. Prince Harry’s son adores both his parents but it sounds like he’s got a soft spot for his dear dad.

The source continued, “When Harry walks into the room, Archie gets so excited, he puts his arms out—his way of saying, ‘Pick me up!’ You can tell Archie’s going to be a social butterfly. He’s at his happiest when he’s around people.”

“He takes a keen interest in his surroundings and is already engaging and interacting with people. He loves to be entertained. And he isn’t a needy baby—he’ll happily go to Harry and Meghan’s friends without kicking up a fuss,” they added.

The Cambridges and Sussexes are set to reunite for a very important occasion this weekend.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday.

On Sunday, the couples will also attend a Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in Whitehall.

“The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days." 

He continued: "We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me. We don't see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly."

Remembrance Sunday is one of the most poignant days for the Royal Family.

We’re sure little Archie looked as cute as pie in his Halloween costume last night.

A royal etiquette expert has explained some of the more confusing royal style rules to news.com.au, and we can't even process how strange this is.

With a rake of high profile events in the Buckingham Palace calendar, The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex have the chance to wear the finest jewels in the world. 

Apparently, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are banned from wearing diamonds during the day, which we think sounds pretty unfair.

Both women possess some beautiful jewellery of their own, and from their late mother-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.

The pair are frequently given permission to wear select pieces from the royal collection, as well as their own. Basically, they own a shed-load of bling.

However, it turns out that the Duchesses are fairly restricted in what jewels they can wear at specific times during the day. Etiquette teacher Myka Meier has given us the lowdown.

“Other jewels are worn pre-6pm,” Meier told news.com.au, which explains why the duo are normally only seen sporting stones like pearls and topaz, or minimalist precious metal pieces during the day as well as their engagement rings.

The Duchesses are meant to avoid looking "flashy" before the evening time, for some reason. 

“Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires," explains Meier.

"At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance.”

Considering their lifestyle is fairly different to our own, we don't think not wearing jewels while the sun is up will suggest that they're just like us.

Meghan is the Vice President for The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and this marked one of her first engagements since controversial documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey aired.

Meghan was supposed to attend the royal engagement by herself but Prince Harry made a surprise appearance.

The couple put on a united front as reports of a ‘royal crisis’ continue.

It is understood that the Royal Family are concerned for both Harry and Meghan who have both expressed their upset about the media backlash they have faced over the past few months.

A royal source told the BBC that Prince William was worried about his younger brother and that the Sussex’s are in a "in a fragile place".

In the documentary, both The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said that the abuse they’ve faced from the British tabloids has had a severe impact on their mental health.

Meghan even revealed her friends advised her not to marry Harry because the “British tabloids will destroy your life”.

Prince Harry admitted that part of this role is ignoring these rumours, but sometimes it is too much to deal with.

"Part of this job is putting on a brave face but, for me and my wife, there is a lot of stuff that hurts, especially when the majority of it is untrue,” he stressed.

There's no doubt their families will support Harry and Meghan during this troubling time.

"Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable, and so that was made really challenging. And then when you have a newborn, you know, and especially as a woman, it’s a lot," the mum said.

She explained that the past year had been unbearably difficult for her and despite trying her best to ignore the hatred, she couldn’t, “Not many people have asked if I’m OK, but it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”

There were mixed responses to last night’s ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up about the struggles they have faced in the past few years, which many found endearing but others claimed it was attention seeking.

However, the documentary proved something that many people have failed to realise; the Sussex’s are real people with real emotions and their royal titles change nothing about that.

Meghan has been ridiculed by the British tabloid press and public in recent months. Lies and accusations have been thrown her way, even during her pregnancy, and it has most certainly taken its toll on the new mum.

The former actress fell head over heels for Prince Harry, but her friends warned her about marrying into the royal family.

She said, “It’s hard. I don’t think anybody could understand that, but in all fairness I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand … but when I first met my now-husband my friends were really happy because I was so happy, but my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life’."

Meghan said she always tells Harry that it’s not enough to just survive something, that’s not the point of life. 

“You have got to thrive. You have got to feel happy, and I think I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip. I tried, I really tried, but I think what that does internally is probably really damaging, and the biggest thing that I know is that I never thought this would be easy but I thought it would be fair, and that is the part that is hard to reconcile but (I) just take each day as it comes,” the Duchess said.

Meghan added, “When people are saying things that are just untrue, and they are being told they are untrue but they are allowed to still say them, I don’t know anybody in the world who would feel that’s OK and that is different from just scrutiny. 

“I think the grass is always greener. You have no idea. It is really hard to understand what it’s like. ‘The good thing is that I have got my baby and I have got my husband and they are the best.”

The documentary may not have won everyone over, but Harry and Meghan’s honesty was a breath of fresh air.

The Duchess of Sussex has achieved so much in the past year. She made history by becoming the first ever guest editor of British Vogue’s September issue. She worked with incredible charities and welcomed her baby boy, Archie.

However, instead of celebrating Meghan’s achievements, people have chosen to belittle the new mum yet again and it just has to stop.

Meghan has gone from being adored by the British press to swiftly becoming the ‘bratty’ member of the royal family whose feminist and left-of-centre views are too much for the red tops to handle. 

They have slated the new mum in every way possible in recent months. She was branded a diva and accused of treating her staff poorly. She was slated for looking tired despite the fact that she had just welcomed a baby. She was pitted against the Duchess of Cambridge and rumours about the pair’s supposed feud were inescapable.

Meghan was mum-shamed within moments of making her first public appearance with baby Archie. They complain when she doesn’t attend events and accuse her of being attention seeking when she does. 

It seems like the former Suits actress simply cannot win, no matter what she does.

Would it have been easier for Meghan to don an overpriced dress and grin for the cover of British Vogue’s September issue? Yes, but instead the mum curated an issue, alongside Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful and his team, that has made history, days before it’s publication date.

Meghan was offered to appear on the cover of the renowned fashion magazine, but politely declined, admitting that she felt it would be too boastful. Instead she gave 15 iconic women who will undoubtedly inspire the readers of one of Britain’s most iconic publications.

All of these women have important and empowering stories to share and the Duchess of Sussex generously gave them the opportunity to grace the cover and share their stories amongst the pages of the glossy magazine.

The Forces for Change issue has given these women a voice in a world that so quickly silences women for being different, especially women like Meghan Markle.

The Duchess stepped aside and let them share their words of wisdom. She was selfless, encouraging and incredibly kind in this act, so why do people feel the need to call her attention seeking, arrogant and stuck up?

Why do people fail to appreciate and acknowledge all of the momentous things she has achieved since joining the royal family?

Do these people just prefer to hate, criticise and downplay every single thing Meghan does? Does it make them feel better? Do they get a kick out of belittling a woman who has given up her privacy, and any ounce of normality for love?

The never-ending hatred aimed at the Duchess of Sussex needs to stop, because regardless of her royal title, she is still a human.

The Duke of Sussex has had quite an overwhelming few weeks. The new dad recently honoured his mum’s legacy during his trip to Africa and has worked tirelessly to ensure Princess Diana’s memory is always remembered and recently opened up about her in an ITV documentary, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

In a harrowing preview clip, Harry said his mum’s death is a “wound that festers."

Harry discussed his troubled relationship with the media in the clip and admitted that their presence often reminds them of his mum’s untimely passing.

Prince Harry said, “I think [of] being part of this family, in this role, in this job every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash. It takes me straight back, so in that respect it's the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best."

The Duke of Sussex added, “Being here now 22 years later, trying to finish what she started will be incredibly emotional but everything that I do reminds me of her. But as I said, with the role, with the job, and the sort of the pressures that come with that, I get reminded of the bad stuff usually."

Prince Harry recently revealed he was going to sue the Mail On Sunday for publishing Meghan’s personal letters. The dad stressed that he didn’t want history to repeat itself.

He stated, “Though this action may not be the safe one, it is the right one. Because my deepest fear is history repeating itself. I’ve seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces.”

“And now, as parents, being here and speaking to all of you pulls at my heartstrings in a way I could have never understood until I had a child of my own,” he added.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their son Archie on May 6. The Sussex’s recently travelled to Africa for their first royal tour as a family-of-three.

He added, “We will firmly stand up for what we believe. We are fortunate enough to have a position that gives us amazing opportunities, and we want to do all we can to play our part in building a better world.”

“We will always seek to challenge injustice and to speak out for those who may feel unheard. So no matter your background, your nationality, your age or gender, your sexuality, your physical ability, no matter your circumstance or colour or of your skin – we believe in you, and we intend to spend our entire lives making sure you have the opportunity to succeed – and to change the world,” the Duke added.
