It feels like just yesterday when Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan announced the birth of their first child via their now-defunct Instagram account, @sussexroyal. In fact, it’s been exactly an entire year, as little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor celebrates his very first birthday today on May 6!
Since his birth, we’ve only managed to catch a few glimpses of the royal baby, as his parents are renowned for keeping much of their lives personal, especially when it comes to their son.
Which is why we were pleasantly surprised when an entire video was released today to mark Archie’s big day. The adorable and rare video, shared by non-profit organisation Save The Children UK, was recorded by Prince Harry himself and shows loving mum Meghan reading “Duck! Rabbit!” to a beaming baby Archie.
It was also released in an effort to help raise funds for children in vulnerable families whose lives have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
As Archie turns one, and the Sussex family celebrate from their brand new home in Los Angeles, we thought we’d look back at Archie’s first year in pictures – from official portraits to all those sweet candid photos shared on Instagram.
