But now a royal source tells New Idea exclusively that these early weeks of parenthood are also proving to be a challenging time for the royals.
Meghan is so wrapped up in her blissful baby bubble and determined to spend every possible moment with her newborn that she won’t let anyone else help out – including her mother, Doria.
“Meghan likes to be in control of everything. She just can’t have anyone be alone with Archie. She’s ignoring help. No-one has looked after him but her,” explains the insider, adding that even the hired nannies aren't able to step in and help the new mum.
"She won't allow them near Archie."
As well as keeping the nannies from Archie, reportedly causing one to storm out, Doria has also found that Meghan is unwilling to let anyone else help her.
"Meghan will only let Doria hold him for a minute, she literally runs in and out of the shower to snap him back up,” explains the source.
“Harry and the mum can hang with Archie but Meghan has to be holding him.”
Now Doria has returned to Los Angeles, just two weeks after Archie’s birth.
Despite Grazia Magazine reporting that she was ‘indispensable’ to the couple, it appears the new royal parents are keen to relish as much alone time as possible.
It's no surprise that Meghan and Harry are doing things in their own, unique way.
Even before Archie's arrival on May 6, Meghan appeared confident to follow her own path and instincts when it came to her much longed for baby.
And that meant going against certain royal protocols.
But rather than using one of the famous brown- uniformed, prestigious child- care specialists – who can command a $120,000 salary – Meghan, it was reported, favoured employing an American nanny, and was even considering appointing a man to look after little Archie.
“Meghan was clear in telling recruiters she favours an American over a Brit and wants them to feel part of the family rather than a uniformed member of staff,” a source told The Express newspaper.
Harry, meanwhile, is now said to be ‘worried’ about his wife, who is also understandably suffering from the sleep deprivation every new parent feels, but still wants to be as hands on with Archie as possible.
While Harry has already made a number of public appearances since the birth , causing Vanity Fair to note he's had the shortest paternity leave in royal history, he appears determined to be a hands-on parents.
Mike Tindall, husband to Harry's cousin Zara, has confirmed the new dad has been busy changing Archie's nappies.
Mike admitted he hasn't yet baby Archie just yet, but he sounds pretty excited to meet him judging by the video below:
But while Meghan is wrapped up in her life as a new mum, she’s also facing pressure from outside forces.
Good Morning Britain host, Lizzie Cundy, has accused the 37-year-old of ghosting her, despite their friendship, since Meghan began her relationship with Harry.
She said she believed the Duchess-to-be was “advised to end contact with people she befriended in the media”.
Meanwhile, royal fans are excitedly clamouring for Harry and Meghan to announce Archie’s christening date.
If they follow royal tradition, it’s likely the much-anticipated event will take place when Archie is between two and four months old.
Yet despite all the pressures and exhaustion they’re feeling, according to Meghan’s close friend and wedding makeup artist Daniel Martin, the royals are doing just fine.
While talking to CBS’ Gayle King recently, he said: “Parenting is difficult in the beginning, but I feel like they’ve got this.”
