Bavaria's Söder presents Prince Charles with Lederhosen for Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Bavarian Premier Markus Söder has a pair of lederhosen for Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the newborn child of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. The baby's grandparents will deliver the gift.

Bavaria's state premier, Markus Söder, on Wednesday offered the newest member of the British royal family, whose name was announced Wednesday as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, a very Bavarian present: a tiny pair of Lederhosen.

"A real pair of Lederhosen, so that the Bavarian way of life may accompany the little one from the beginning," Söder wrote on Twitter as he congratulated Prince Charles and his wife Camilla on becoming grandparents.

Söder will be welcoming the royal couple to Bavaria on Thursday.
