Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, have kept a low profile since stepping away from their royal roles and moving to Los Angeles. While the couple are likely to be based in the USA with their son Archie Harrison for the foreseeable future, they honoured their links to the UK by sharing an adorable new clip of Archie on his first birthday.
Prince Harry got behind the camera to film Meghan reading a storybook to Archie who was happily fidgeting on her lap.
The video was shared by charity Save the Children UK to help raise money for the British branch of the organisation amid the coronavirus pandemic.
While the doting parents have been protective of Archie’s privacy since his birth the sweet new clip seemed to indicate a more open approach, one royal commentator has claimed.
Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “Yesterday was Archie’s first birthday.
