People: Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Son Archie Had Zoom Calls with Family on His 1st Birthday
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."
ARCHIE’S BIRTHDAY PLANS
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.
