Baby Archie celebrated his very first birthday this week and a source has revealed what activities his parents possibly undertook to make the celebration special amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.


Little Archie rang in his first birthday on Wednesday in his new home in Los Angeles. His parents, Duchess Meghan, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, made sure the milestone was celebrated in a memorable way.

Even though the child’s birthday couldn’t be a big celebration due to social distancing regulations amid COVID-19, the toddler still got something worth noting on the day. A source revealed to “People” magazine that the Sussexes had intended on celebrating “as a family focused on Archie and being together."

The insider also shared, ahead of the birthday, what the family intended to have stating: "They’ll have a smash cake and Zooms with family and friends.” The informant further speculated that if the weather remained “beautiful,” the family could opt to go out for a “stroll with the dogs.”

One thing we do know for sure is that little Archie got to be the center of attention in a video shared on social media. In support of the Save With Stories campaign in the US and the Save Children UK, the Sussexes took part in a book reading initiative.



The two organizations work to help children who’ve been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Harry recorded the video of his wife reading “Duck! Rabbit!” together with Archie.



In the video, Archie’s mother revealed what his nickname was as she urged him to help turn the pages of the books. Meghan was heard saying:

“Let’s turn the page, let’s show everybody. Let’s go to the next page — look Arch!”



The little boy received birthday wishes from his uncle and aunt, Prince William and Duchess Kate from their Kensington Palace Instagram account. They shared a family photo from the boy’s private christening in July 2019.



The official Royal Family Instagram account shared an image taken just two days after Archie's birth. The photo included the Sussexes, the Queen, Prince Philip, and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.


Prince Charles, Archie’s grandfather, and his wife Duchess Camilla honored him by sharing a black and white photo from his christening. The last time the toddler was seen was on New Year's Eve. His parents shared a video of the little boy in his father’s arms.
