Speaking to US Weekly, a royal insider said: “He’s a strong baby and you can tell he’s super smart.
“He can sit up without support and roll over, and he’s almost crawling. He can’t talk yet, but he’s trying!”
Considering babies usually start talking anywhere between seven and 11 months, Archie is very advanced for his age.
The insider added the young royal may be a big fan of his dad.
They said: “When Harry walks into the room, Archie gets so excited, he puts his arms out — his way of saying, ‘Pick me up!’.”
The source added “there’s a good chance” his first word will be “Dada”.
Archie takes after his cousin, Prince George, with his early development.
The eldest son of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge reportedly said his first word when the family were in Australia in 2014.
Aged about nine months, George’s first word might have been “bilby”.
In a speech to city dignitaries at Sydney Opera House, his father William said: “George is now busy forging his own link with Australia.
“Catherine and I were very grateful for the many kind messages and gifts from across the country that we received when George was born.
“I suspect George’s first word might be ‘bilby’ – only because ‘koala’ is harder to say,” William joked.
