Prince Harry has finally met his three-week-old niece Princess Charlotte.

The 30-year-old royal missed the royal birth earlier this month while he was travelling with the British Army to Australia and New Zealand.

But Harry, who is reportedly back dating his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy, met the newborn over the weekend at Kate Middleton and Prince William's Amner Hall.

He came bearing gifts as he also delivered the number of gifts given by fans during his tour Down Under.

The Duchess of Cambridge is currently on maternity leave and will take the next number of weeks off from royal duties to focus on the new addition to the family and her big brother Prince George (20 months).

And the family are said to be bringing the future King of England on more public duties over the coming months when Kate returns to the public eye.

A palace aide told the Sunday Times: "The public will have a chance to see him out and about ... with his parents a bit more in the next few months."

Prince Harry wears a traditional cloak as he arrives at the Putiki marae, which is central to Maori culture and community activities in Whanganui, on the latest leg of his tour of New Zealand.

Prince William is also back in the UK after a trip to Sweden and was quoted as saying he's endured a "few sleepless nights" since welcoming the new arrival.

Steph Houghton, who captains the England football team, said: "He said George is very lively, and Princess Charlotte has been keeping him up all night, giving him a few sleepless nights.

"But he said he was just happy to have them both here."
