Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex has celebrated her son Archie’s first birthday today with a reading of the children’s book Duck! Rabbit! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. The reading was an effort to help children affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. Her husband Prince Harry filmed the video. The couple teamed up with the charity Save the Children to mark Archie’s first birthday milestone. The video is part of the ‘Save the Stories’ campaign that has enlisted several celebrity readings.

In a video posted by the charity, we get to see Meghan read to Archie from the popular 2009 book and encouraged and requested fans to donate to a number of causes to help young people. Meghan’s reading was loved by Archie who proved to be a very good and attentive audience. The video was captioned, “Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex reads "Duck! Rabbit!" for Archie's birthday. "Duck! Rabbit!" with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex (and Harry, The Duke of Sussex behind the camera), read to their son Archie for his 1st birthday. Happy Birthday, Archie! Thank you #DuchessMeghan for helping us to raise urgent funds for our coronavirus appeal by reading "Duck! Rabbit" by @akrfoundation, illustrated by @tlichtenheld (published by @chroniclekidsbooks).”Apparently, the book is one of Archie’s favourite.
