However, some fans are concerned about the fact that it took so long for Prince William and Kate Middleton to meet Prince Harry's baby, a possible sign that there might be some discord between the brothers.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that their first child, Archie Harrison, was born on Monday, May 6th, 2019. They were congratulated by fans all over the world, as the baby's arrival was a very much anticipated event.

While both Prince William and Kate Middleton offered their congratulations as well, it was reported that it would not be until Tuesday, May 14th, that they'd get to meet the baby. That's eight days after the child was born.

One might have expected that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would have been the first ones to go say hi to the new parents, right?

Well, according to reports, the couple's reason for not visiting the Sussexes earlier wasn't due to any animosity. For one thing, William and Kate were really busy in the days following Archie's arrival.

A day after the birth, the couple's royal duties took them to London where they launched a new sailing race. And on Wednesday, they both took a trip to North Wales for other royal events.

He also said he was thrilled for them and couldn't wait to see the couple in a few days, when things quiet down.
