Harry and Meghan release video of Archie to celebrate his first birthday

Harry and Meghan have released videos of their son Archie to mark his first birthday.

Archie, who turns one today, is seen in the video with Meghan Markle as she reads the story ‘Duck Rabbit’ to him.

Prince Harry filmed the footage and can be heard laughing behind the camera.



Archie has rarely been seen in public and in the video he smiles and grips the pages of the story, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld, which playfully asks whether an ambiguous image is a duck or a rabbit.

The video was posted on Save the Children UK’s Instagram page in support of the charity’s Save with Stories campaign, which aims to raise funds for children and families struggling due to the coronavirus crisis in the UK and around the world.

A caption with the video said: ”Duck! Rabbit!’ with Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex (and Harry, the Duke of Sussex behind the camera), read to their son Archie for his first birthday. Happy birthday, Archie!

‘Thank you Duchess Meghan for helping us to raise urgent funds for our coronavirus appeal.’

The couple have made Los Angeles their home and they and other residents of California have been living under a ‘stay-at-home’ order made by the state’s governor, Gavin Newsom.

America is where they plan to bring up their son after walking away from the royal family in order to become financially independent, after their hopes of earning money while still supporting the Queen were ruled out.



Archie has experienced an eventful 12 months since he was born at London’s Portland Hospital – first living in a cottage in the grounds of Windsor Castle, then an exclusive home on Vancouver Island in Canada, and now in the sprawling metropolis known as the City of Angels.

He was born on May 6, 2019 at 5.26am, weighing 7lb 3oz.

A few days after his birth, his parents proudly showed him to the world, before the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh saw the infant for the first time.
