Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Prepare for Archie's First Trip to America

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II visits Royal British Legion Industries village in Aylesford

While the sweeping calotte style hat, which featured a self-knotted ribbon bow and delicate veiling, was made just for Meghan - in a color to match her wrap coat - the same style is available to buy (in a different shade of blue) for $1,925.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a special trip Wednesday morning to the weekly meet-up group for those with relatives deployed overseas.

The families were astonished to see the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at their weekly gathering which is held at the Broom Farm Community Centre in Windsor.

In the video shared on the official Sussex Royal account, Meghan can be heard telling a toddler, "Look at all your little teeth. Two tiny ones, right there", she added, pointing to the middle of her own bottom row.

Meghan spoke with Amy Thompson, whose husband Brad is in the Welsh Guards, who said they discussed "weaning and the children beginning to crawl". "She asked me who my best friend was".

They chatted to everyone from D-Day veterans to those who served in more recent conflicts and shared a hug with Poppie Hutton, aged eight, from Armagh, Northern Ireland, who was with her grandparents at the plot for the Royal Irish Regiment.

"We had a party when Harry and Meghan got married and we've followed their story ever since", said Leigh.

Ms Smith said the visit was a "really special and lovely boost" for the military families.

Most of the Coldstream Guards are on exercise in Kenya, while a large proportion of the Welsh Guards are coming to the end of a deployment to the Falklands. "I can't imagine what it's like to miss so much as [children] change so quickly".

Capt Lewis said it was "great for the duke and duchess to take the time to truly understand the challenges" the families face.

"A reminder that a existence of provider doesn't simply describe the actual person wearing the uniform, however the entire family".

"The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time", a source told the Sunday Times.
