Why these photos of Archie and Meghan Markle are so surprising!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stunned royal fans when baby Archie made his first public appearance at a polo game with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The two-month-old’s first public appearance came as a shock to experts who had predicted that the new, youngest member of the British royal family would be shielded from photographers for months - especially after Prince Harry and Meghan controversially decided to keep their son's christening on July 6, 2019 private.

But royal commentator Omid Scobie announced on Twitter that the Duchess of Sussex and her newborn would be cheering on Prince Harry by saying 'Supporting dad! Meghan and Archie have arrived at the polo to cheer on Harry as he raises money for his chosen charities..."




Buckingham Palace had already revealed that Kate Middleton, Prince William and children George, five, Charlotte, four, and Louis, one, would be attending the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day the Billingbear Polo Club to raise funds and awareness for their favourite charities and the Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Memorial Trophy.

But no-one guessed that Meghan, would make her first appearance as a mum-of-one.

Experts have suggested her appearance was a carefully orchestrated move to silence any rumours there is a royal rift between Prince Harry and older brother Prince William.

Perhaps it also helps Meghan's image after she came under fire for acting 'like a diva' at the Wimbledon when fans were told not to take her photo as she watched her friend Serena Williams play. 

"We reckoned there were going to be a few of the rest of the family but I don't think anyone expected to see Archie and to see the Cambridge children there all playing together happy families – a long overdue show of solidarity between them all," Duncan Larcombe told the Today show.
