Family friend Waseefa Majiet added: "Meghan was speaking about motherhood and the transition and said that Archie was a good traveller.

"She said the transition was quite smooth because he’s an easy baby and he was an easy traveller. Harry said he slept on his chest almost 11 hours during the flight."

They took part in a meditation session called a "power hand" exercise with members of the organisation, during which the couple complimented each other's parenting skills.

She told reporters: "We were invited to share our strengths and identify our strengths. Meghan looked a little bit hesitant so one of our coaches suggested that Meghan’s dancing was her strength.

"She laughed and said I don’t think so but parenting is a new strength that she and Harry are learning and developing. She then said that he is the best dad and he said no, she is the best mum."
