A BEAMING Queen today peered at a smartphone – potentially keeping tabs on her newest great-grandson Archie.

The 93-year-old monarch was spotted peering at the device during a trip to the Windsor horse show, just days after meeting the newest addition to the Royal Family.

The Queen laughs as she visits the Windsor horse show today

Her Majesty was rugged up in a rain jacket and floral headscarf for today’s event – her third visit this week to the Windsor horse show.

It’s been a great week for the Queen after she was one of the first to meet baby Archie after he was born on Monday morning.

And the monarch, who is said to read the Racing Post over breakfast every morning, seemed in high spirits as she headed to the show today.

She made sure to make the most of today’s visit as she gave one of the horses a pat as she was taken around.

And although it was unclear what she was looking at on the phone, it could be that she was checking for an update from proud parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle of baby Archie.

The Queen has been around horses from her early childhood, with her first riding lesson taking place when she was just four at the Buckingham Palace Mews.

She was given a Shetland pony named Peggy as a child, going on to follow the sport throughout her life.

Her passion has also been passed down to the rest of the royal family, with Princess Anne and Zara Tindall both known for their equestrian talents.

NEWEST ADDITION

Harry and Meghan this week welcomed their first child together – naming their baby boy Archie Harrison as they introduced him to the world.

The new parents beamed as they posed for photographs with their son, who was born on Monday morning.

Giddy bearded dad Harry, who cradled his son tightly throughout, joked the baby “already has facial hair”.

And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex kept their sleeping baby boy swaddled in a traditional merino wool blanket from royal favourites GH Hurt & Son and hat as they gushed over him.

Describing her first few days of parenthood, mum Meghan said: “It’s magic.

“It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”

Harry, who yesterday jetted to Holland to launch the Invictus Games countdown, added: “Parenting is amazing. It’s only been what – two and a half days, three days – but we are just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy and to be able to spend some precious times with him as he slowly starts to grow up.”

Meanwhile, grandfather Prince Charles joked he was collecting a “rather large number” of grandchildren.

The 70-year-old was gifted a teddy bear and blue balloon as he arrived in Germany with wife Camilla.

The Prince of Wales said he was absolutely “delighted”.
