The couple made their first public appearance last Thursday night since relocating to Canada, attending the annual Endeavour Fund Awards. But that did not mean their little boy was not on their minds.
Meghan talked with attendee Claire Spencer about her boy, saying: “Oh yes, well, he is 10 months now and is into everything.”
Archie is believed to have remained in Canada while Meghan, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, are in the U.K. for their last round of engagements before officially stepping down from their royal roles on March 31.
A close friend revealed to PEOPLE: “Archie is the priority. It’s very much still about taking care of him and putting the family first. He’s a happy kid — he loves to laugh. Archie and Harry have such a good time together. And Meghan is a great mom. She’s very much about tending to him. They are trying to live their life as regular parents.”
Harry, who has remained in the U.K. while Meghan and Archie are in Canada, recently saw snow for the first time and believed it to be “bloody brilliant.”
Harry boasted to the crowd about his son’s discovery when he attended an event organized for his Sentebale charity, which supports the mental health and wellbeing of children afflicted with HIV.
“I also know you’ve come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do,” Harry said.
“And she does, and she’s the same woman I fell in love with. We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride.”
“I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family, for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months,” he also shared.
“I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me. Together, you have given me an education about living.”
“And this role has taught me more about what is right and just than I could have ever imagined. We are taking a leap of faith – thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step.”
Both Meghan and Harry have quite the schedule as they begin their final royal engagements, including the Mountbatten Music Festival at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday.
