To commemorate Archie’s first birthday, Prince Harry recently filmed a video of his wife, Meghan, and their son reading a story together.
But, despite Harry not being visible in the video, there’s something about it that’s making people fall even more in love with the prince.
Keep scrolling to hear why people have been gushing over Harry, and to watch the adorable video for yourself…
Prince Harry has always been a royal favorite.
Ever since his wild teenage years, the world has been firmly in love with the rebellious young prince.
The British monarchy is notorious for it’s strict and traditional values, but Harry has led the way for a modern, more progessive approach to royal duties.
Whether it be through his mischievous antics or selfless charitable efforts.
Headlines were made all over the world when Harry announced his romance with the Suits actress, Meghan Markle.
The couple met back in 2016 when they were set up by a mutual friend who thought the two would hit it off.
Because the pair hit it off, and they immediately arranged to see each other again, eventually going on to have 2 more dates in London.
The pair officially went public with their relationship.
Though she was already pretty well known for her role as Rachel Zane in Suits, the California-born actress was thrown into levels of fame that she had never experienced before.
The world quickly became Harry and Meghan obsessed.
And people were delighted to hear the news of their engagement later that year.
The couple officially tied the knot in May 2018.
They were expecting!
On October 15th, 2018, the couple announced their pregnancy.
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor was welcomed into the world.
Harry, Meghan, and baby Archie make for the cutest little family.
But things haven’t been as rosy and smooth-sailing as they have been appearing.
Joining the British royal family was never going to be easy, given that a person has to give up their entire life in order to be a part of the monarchy.
But Meghan’s experience has been especially difficult.
And many attacked the Duchess, slamming her as “fake,” with some going as far as accusing her of breaking up the royal family entirely.
To the point where Kensington Palace was forced to issue a statement, pleading for the press and the public alike to take a step back when it comes to their scathing reporting and bombardment of Meghan.
Because they announced that they would be officially stepping down as senior members of the royal family.
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the post read.
And they announced that they will be splitting their time between the U.K and North America.
“This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity,” they wrote.
This was huge news.
And, obviously, it ruffled a couple of feathers in Buckingham Palace.
Is how hard this whole experience must have been for Meghan – a new mother.
That includes baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – You couldn’t make up a more royal-sounding name if you tried.
What a year it has been!
Which means they’re far away from many of their close family members.
The Queen herself was one of the first to offer her well wishes.
These pictures are too adorable for words.
With another adorable throwback photo.
But, the birthday post that everyone was talking about was filmed by Harry himself.
Harry recorded a video of Meghan reading to Archie who, as most mischievous 1-year-olds do, was excitably squirming and giggling in her lap.
Meghan was also reading as part of the charity campaign, #SaveWithStories, a campaign that brings food and learning resources to children impacted by the pandemic.
The video was insanely cute.
And Meghan looks confident and content in her role as a mother as she enthusiastically reads the story to Archie.
Which is the most recent glimpse at the young royal.
And it is about the make-shift cameraman, Prince Harry.
And often mimics what Meghan is reading out to make his son laugh, such as saying “Quack! Quack!”
And utters the word “dada”.
Our hearts can not cope with that.
Harry and Meghan are seemingly loving parenthood…
But does this mean we could be expecting a little brother or sister for Archie?
