Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have travelled to New York alone without their two children Archie and Lilibet – but it seems the youngsters were never far from their minds.
While going between meetings in the city, Prince Harry was spotted carrying a personalised laptop case – and it revealed two-year-old Archie’s sweet name for him.
The couple were in the Big Apple for several days and made appearances at the Global Citizen Live event, the One World Observatory and the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.
As they left a meeting with Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the US Ambassador to the UN, where they discussed COVID-19, racial justice and mental health, Harry’s laptop case was spotted.

And if you look closely, you can see the adorable words “Archie’s Papa” embroidered across it.
Earlier this year when Harry revealed on his Apple TV series The Me You Can’t See that one of Archie’s first words was “papa” followed by “grandma” – a tribute to Harry’s late mum Princess Diana.
He said: “I’ve got a photo of her in his nursery, and it was one of the first words that he said — apart from ‘mama,’ ‘papa,’ it was then ‘grandma.’ Grandma Diana.

“It’s the sweetest thing, but at the same time, it makes me really sad because she should be here.”
Meanwhile, it seems that Harry and Meghan also have a cute nickname for Archie.
In 2019, when he accompanied his parents on a tour of South Africa, Meghan revealed the sweet pet name during a visit to see Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
As Meghan and Harry met Tutu’s daughter Thandeka Tutu Gxashe, she cooed over the tot and said: “Oh precious! Hello! Ready for the cameras aren’t you.”
Meghan then began encouraging her son to respond, saying: “Say hello, hello, hi. Oh, bubba!”
Harry and Meghan’s three-month-old daughter Lilibet is herself named after a nickname given to her great-grandmother the Queen – although the couple says she will be referred to as Lili.
Since Lilibet’s birth in June, the couple has not released any images of the infant and have hardly given any updates about her.
But as they walked between engagements last week, one reporter from Inside Edition called out to the couple, asking: “Meghan, how’s Lilibet?”
And Meghan simply replied : “She’s beautiful.”
Another also asked: “How’s Archie?”, to which Meghan gave a big thumbs up.
