Proud mum Meghan Markle was spotted kissing baby Archie as she and Kate Middleton brought all their children to watch dads William and Harry in a charity polo match.

Archie, who is on his first public outing after his private Christening on Saturday, looked adorable as he cuddled up to his doting mum.

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen with playful Princess Charlotte and Prince George as she carried one-year-old Prince Louis.

William and Harry played against each other in the game honouring the late Leicester City owner Khun Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha - who died in a helicopter crash in October - with William's team winning.

It's the duo’s first joint event this year, and follows on from a rumoured rift between the pair and their wives Duchesses Kate and Meghan.

She was branded 'childish' for stopping selfies even though there were 12,000 people in the crowd and more than a million people watching her on TV.

She was sat with two university friends ans around 40 empty seats as her private protection officer.

Any troubles were put aside for baby Archie’s christening at the weekend as the “fab four” came together to mark the occasion at Windsor Castle.

The brothers’ joint appearance comes weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed they were leaving the Royal Foundation and setting up their own charity.

William and Kate will remain with the original charity, which will be renamed the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

William and Harry set up the Royal Foundation back in 2009, with Kate joining two years later.

The foundation said the move was taken to “better align” the couples’ charitable activities.

But the move sparked speculation of a further divide between the young royals after a turbulent year.

Kate was said to have been left in tears over the bride-to-be's strict demands over the dress the four year old, who is fourth in line for the thrown, was set to wear.

The incident was said to have occurred at a stressful dress fitting, in the run up to Meghan and Harry's wedding day on May 19, last year.

Kate had only just given birth to her third child, Prince Louis and was reportedly feeling emotional.

The Duchess of Cambridge has since been accused of trying to upstage the Meghan at Archie's christening due to her earrings.

Kate was wearing Princess Diana’s Collingwood Pearl earrings, which Diana wore to Harry’s christening back in 1984.

Royal author Juliet Rieden suggest that the Queen is behind the rift between the two brothers however.

Queen Elizabeth is starting to off-load her duties, forcing the Prince of Wales and in turn Prince William to take on more, the royal watcher claims.

Speaking to Nine News Australia, Ms Rieden said: "The two brothers have very different roles.

"Prince William is going to be king one day. The Queen is 93 and she’s offloading a lot of her work both to her son and to her grandson.

"William has really had to up the ante and take on a lot of this heavy lifting."

Among the charities William and Harry will raise money for, at the King Power Royal Charity Polo Day, are The Invictus Games Foundation, the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, Rhino Conservation Botswana and RFU Injured Players Foundation.
