Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the first child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is 1!

Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, celebrated their son’s first birthday on Wednesday by releasing a new video of Archie, who was born in London on May 6, 2019.

In the video, Meghan is reading the children’s book “Duck! Rabbit!” to Archie, who sits on her lap. Prince Harry is behind the camera recording his wife and son as they read the book together.

The video was shared through #SAVEWITHSTORIES, an initiative launched by Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams with Save the Children and No Kid Hungry in which celebrities read stories on the social media to raise funds for children without access to meals at schools in both UK and the U.S. during the ravaging COVID-19 outbreak.

A spokesperson for the sussexes said: 

“As they celebrate this family moment, the Duke and Duchess wanted to continue to raise awareness around the urgency of bringing food and learning resources to millions of children,”  “The Duchess chose to read one of Archie’s favorite stories, ‘Duck! Rabbit!'”

Archie has since the breaking of the day been receiving words of cheer on social media from the royalties of the kingdom including Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William and Kate, and others.

Archie, who is the great-grandson to Queen Elizabeth II, is the seventh in line to the British royal throne. Within the space of his first year on earth, he has traveled across the world meeting revered leaders like Desmond Tutu of South Africa. 

He was birthed at London’s Portland Hospital, and brought home to his family’s Frogmore Cottage home, where Prince Harry announced his baby son’s arrival.

“As every father and parent would ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing,” Harry said to reporters. “But this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”

In July 2019, Archie was christened in a private ceremony   at the Queen’s private chapel at Windsor Castle. There to witness the christening were Archie’s godparents and family members, including his uncle and aunt, Prince William and Kate; Archie’s grandfather Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall; Archie’s maternal grandmother, Doria Ragland; and the two sisters of Archie’s late paternal grandmother, Princess Diana.

 The nuclear family visited South Africa, where Archie was being introduced to Desmond Tutu.

The 1-year-old is already providing inspiration for his parents’ first venture as non-working members of the royal family, a new nonprofit venture they plan to call Archewell.
