Prince Harry and Meghan have released a video of their son Archie on his first birthday to support a Save The Children coronavirus fund.
It is a part of Save The Children‘s ‘Save With Stories’ campaign, which helps children who have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The campaign encourages people to read stories to their children and share them on Instagram and Facebook in the hope people will donate.
The video, which was filmed by dad Harry, shows mom Meghan reading to Archie his favorite book Duck! Rabbit! as he sits on her lap.
Birthday boy Archie, who looks so grown up, can be seen giggling as he helps his mother turn the pages. But, the little reader couldn’t wait for mommy to finish and already grabbed another book which he throws towards Meghan.
Excited dad Harry can be also heard laughing in the background, as he films them.
Since the couple currently doesn’t have an official Social media account, they shared the sweet video on the charity’s social media pages, @savethechildren @savewithstories and @nokidhungry.
The message bellow the video reads: “Duck! Rabbit!” read by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex.
“Duck! Rabbit!” by @akrfoundation & @tlichtenheld (published by @chroniclekidsbooks). 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!
“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.
“If you can manage a one time gift of $10, please text SAVE to 20222. If another amount would work better for you, please visit our website—link in bio. There is no maximum and there is no minimum—together we will rise and together we can help.“Thank you and stay safe. XX”
Archie celebrated his first birthday with mom and dad at their new home in Los Angeles, after moving from Vancouver Island in Canada earlier this year.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor was born in the early morning of May 6 2019 at the Portland Hospital in London. His first appearance came two days later when Harry and Meghan held a photo call with a restricted number of photographers at Windsor Castle.
