Just days after little Archie Harrison was born, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced the newest member of the royal family to the world. In the video above, Archie makes his public debut, and the new parents beam and gush over their first child.

But over the past few weeks, little Archie has also been meeting Meghan and Harry's nearest and dearest in a much more intimate setting. Here's everyone who has visited the royal baby so far:

DORIA RAGLAND

Meghan's mother has been critical in helping Meghan adjust to new motherhood. She arrived at Frogmore Cottage weeks before baby Archie arrived, and was there with the new family of three following his birth. Per an announcement from Buckingham Palace, she is "overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild."

THE QUEEN AND PRINCE PHILIP


The British monarch and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, were among the first to meet baby Archie. Meghan and Harry took the youngster to meet his great-grandparents shortly after their first photo call, though he had already met Prince Philip. They ran into him in the hall at Windsor!

PRINCE CHARLES

New grandpa Prince Charles met baby Archie for the first time on May 16. He was out of town on a royal tour of Germany when the baby was born, which is why their introduction took a few weeks. During the trip he told well-wishers, "We couldn’t be more delighted at the news and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return."

THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE

On May 14, Prince William and Kate traveled to Windsor to meet their nephew, Archie. Just days prior, William said, "We’re absolutely thrilled & look forward to seeing them in the next few days," and joked that he was "very glad and pleased to welcome my brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting."


JESSICA MULRONEY

Mulroney, who is often referred to as Meghan's BFF, and her daughter Ivy were recently spotted on a trip to England prompting rumors that the mother-daughter duo was heading to Windsor to meet baby Archie. But the reason for her travels has yet to be confirmed.

SERENA WILLIAMS

It has also been rumored that Meghan's longtime friend tennis star Serena Williams stopped by Frogmore Cottage to meet little Archie on her way to their French Open, but again, no official confirmation has been made.

NACHO FIGUERAS

It isn't just Meghan's friends who are stopping by to meet the baby. Harry's buddy, polo player Nacho Figueras has also been introduced to the youngster.

"Nacho met little Archie last week and said that the Duke couldn’t take his eyes off of him—nor his hands," Johnny Hornby, the chairman of Prince Harry's charity Sentebale, told People. "The two of them are just in a state of sheer delight over this birth."
