  • Prince George and Princess Charlotte "dote" on their younger cousin Archie Mountbatten-Windsor Us Weekly reported.
  • Charlotte treats the two-month-old son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle "like a little doll," a source told the publication.
  • The royal siblings, along with one-year-old brother Prince Louis, were seen with Archie at a family polo outing last week.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children have not made many appearances with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, but it sounds like they do bond with their young cousin outside of the public eye.

A source told Us Weekly that five-year-old Prince George and four-year-old Princess Charlotte, Prince William and Kate Middleton's two oldest children, "dote" on two-month-old Archie. "Charlotte treats Meghan and Harry's son like a little doll and is always asking after him," the insider added.

Last week's royal family polo outing—which included Duchess Kate, Prince William, Duchess Meghan, Prince Harry, and their children—marked the first time the Cambridge kids were photographed out and about with Archie.

George and Charlotte weren't seen having much face time with their cousin (they seemed to be busy playing with a soccer ball and polo mallet), but their one-year-old brother, Prince Louis, was captured in an adorable shot with him. At one point of the game, he was seen with Kate, Meghan, and the royal baby as he sported a pair of cool sunglasses.

The sporting event wasn't the first time the Cambridges' bonded with their cousin outside of home. Us Weekly previously reported that Archie was present at Trooping the Colour in June to "meet some of his cousins," but he didn't join the royals for their famous balcony photo op.

We have our fingers crossed for another joint cameo from the royal cousins soon.
