- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry opened up about their son Archie’s milestones in lockdown.
- Apparently this cute lil’ bb is walking, running, and falling over.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just sat down with Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai to commemorate International Day of the Girl, and ended up chatting a bit about their adorable son Archie in the process—who they largely keep out of the public eye.
Meghan first brought up Archie while talking about school and education, saying, per Us Weekly, “To be able to raise our son in a way where everything about his nourishment is in terms of educational substance, and how you can learn and how you can grow. You know, having the privilege of being able to go to school is something that, I think, oftentimes is taken for granted.”
But the couple also spoke about some of the milestones Archie has reached during lockdown, with Harry saying “We were both there for his first steps. His first run, his first fall, his first everything.”

Meanwhile, Meghan added, “And it’s just fantastic, because I think in so many ways we are fortunate to be able to have this time to watch him grow, and in the absence of COVID, we would be traveling and working more externally. And we’d miss a lot of those moments. So it’s been a lot of good family time.”
Harry also explained how these special moments are balanced by the collective traumatic experience of living through this pandemic: “Those are really special moments but at the same time, as Meghan says we’ve been working really, really hard and completely understand and get how challenging this is for absolutely everyone,” he said. “And I think the longer it goes on for, the more it’s going to be felt especially from a mental health aspect….This is a really unifying moment to bring everybody together and acknowledge what everyone has been through. This traumatic experience, wherever you are in the world. For us, the work continues … we continue to throw our weight behind those things that we think are really important.”
Love these two.
