London: It’s a big day in the life of one lit­tle boy — Archie Har­ri­son Mount­bat­ten-Wind­sor just turned one.

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sus­sex, cel­e­brated the happy oc­ca­sion Wed­nes­day, and they in­vited fans and royal watch­ers to cel­e­brate with them as they re­leased a new video filmed by Harry that shows Meghan read­ing to their son.

“Duck! Rab­bit!” read by Meghan, The Duchess of Sus­sex (with Harry, The Duke of Sus­sex be­hind the cam­era) to their son Archie for his 1st Birth­day.

Happy Birth­day, Archie!” the cap­tion says, be­fore fur­ther de­tail­ing the cause the fam­ily is tak­ing part in — a US and UK cam­paign to help chil­dren who have been im­pacted by the coro­n­avirus pan­demic, which is why the video was shared to Save the Chil­dren In­sta­gram ac­counts. “THIRTY MIL­LION CHIL­DREN rely on school for food. Re­spond­ing to the needs of kids dur­ing these school clo­sures @ savethechi­l­dren and @nokid­hun­gry have a new fund @SAVEWITHST­ORIES to sup­port food banks, and mo­bile meal trucks, and com­mu­nity feed­ing pro­grams with funds to do what they do best—and also—with ed­u­ca­tional toys, books, and work­sheets to make sure brains are full, as well as bel­lies.”

In the video, Meghan prompts her son with a “ready?!” be­fore read­ing the book, which Archie ea­gerly grabs and opens be­fore let­ting out a cute gig­gle.

“Look, Arch,” Meghan says a few pages into the book as Archie con­tin­ues to help turning the pages.

Dad Harry can be heard in the back­ground mak­ing duck sounds and laugh­ing while he films his wife and son. To­ward the end of the clip, Archie is so ea­ger to con­tinue read­ing he reaches for an­other book!

“Let’s fin­ish this book. Then we’ll have that book,” Meghan says while pulling her son back on to her lap and Harry can be heard laugh­ing as Archie man­ages to toss an­other book on the floor.

“Yay, the end!” Harry says when Meghan fin­ishes read­ing.
