Prince Harry and Meghan celebrate son Archie’s 1st birthday with new video
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.
