WATCH: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sweetly celebrate Archie’s first birthday

06th May 2020

The ever-adorable Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is officially one year old (already!) — and to celebrate their son’s milestone, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released a new adorable video of the Duchess of Sussex reading Duck! Rabbit!

The children’s picturebook is said to be one of Archie’s favourites.

The clip, just over two minutes long was filmed by Prince Harry as Meghan reads to an energetic, smiley Archie who helps mum turn the pages and looks around for other books to distract him. It’s all adorable and the one-year-old is too cute for words.

Published this morning on the Save with Stories Instagram account, it’s also part of Save the Children‘s campaign in the UK to support kids who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, as well as provide educational entertainment for parents homeschooling their children.

Both mum and baby (who is a ringer for Prince Harry!) engage with the camera and appear to be thoroughly in the moment and having fun – The Duke of Sussex even gets a special mention at the end.

Even a sweet clip for a good cause has ensured the trolls are out for The Duchess of Sussex no matter what she does, proving once more that in no way are all the royal women treated equally.

Be that as it may, this lovely family seems to be genuinely relaxed as they adjust to their new life out of the spotlight, with Archie the happiest of all.

Watch the clip below for a Wednesday boost:
