Britain’s Prince Harry has shot a video of his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex reading to their son Archie to mark his first birthday on Wednesday.

The family is currently in Los Angeles, where they relocated after Harry and Meghan officially stepped down as senior members of the royal family last month.

But in celebration of Archie’s big day, a video of Meghan reading one of his favourite books to him – Duck! Rabbit! – has been posted on the official Instagram page of the Save the Children charity.


The clip concluded with a plea for donations to the organisation, and was shared on their page with a link to their fundraising site.

It’s the first time the public has been treated to a glimpse of Archie since New Year’s Eve, when the couple shared a snap of themselves with their son to ring in 2020.

And despite the fact Meghan and Harry are no longer in England, members of the British royal family were quick to celebrate Archie’s birthday on social media as well.

Queen Elizabeth II’s team posted a picture of the monarch and her husband Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, with Archie, Harry, Meghan, and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland on the Royal Family Twitter page.

“Happy Birthday to Archie Mountbatten-Windsor who is celebrating his 1st birthday today!” the caption reads. “Archie is The Queen’s eighth great-grandchild.”

Meanwhile, Harry’s father Prince Charles posted on his and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s, Clarence House Twitter page, writing alongside it: “A very Happy Birthday to Archie, who turns one today. This photo of Archie and his grandfather was taken following his christening in July 2019.”

And Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, tweeted an official portrait of themselves with Harry, Meghan, and Archie at the tot’s christening on their Kensington Palace account, captioning it: “Wishing Archie a very happy first birthday today!”
