Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent their first Fourth of July in the US bonding with their son, Archie.
While some public figures marked this year’s Fourth of July with various festivities, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chose to spend some quality time with their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

During a recent conversation with Katie Nicholl, ET Online discovered that the duo has been spending time with their 1-year-old who is about to reach a significant milestone. Katie, who is a royal expert, told the outlet that:
“I think he is just about walking. He's a very happy little boy, he's loving life in L.A. and they are still staying at Tyler Perry's house.”
Back in June, an insider informed Us Weekly that the tot was making some progress as regards talking. While noting that the 1-year-old was already “saying a few words, like ‘Dada,’ ‘Mama,’ and ‘book,’” the source said that the Queen’s great-grandson loved “playing hide-and-seek and using building blocks.”
Meghan and Harry made history twice, when they walked down the aisle in May 2018 and when they announced their withdrawal from their roles as senior royals.

Not a lot of people are surprised about Archie’s first word is “dada,” as it was predicted in November 2019 that the tot would utter them first due to the bond he shares with his father.
The bond between father and son also caused the Duke of Sussex to feel worried about his son’s future amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
People reported in June that Harry reflected on the need for conservation in the report that he penned to African Parks — the organization that he is a President of. Despite the worry, Harry and Meghan have ensured that they employ a suitable style to raise their son.
Us Magazine divulged that Meghan wasn’t a fan of leaving Archie at home for longer than a couple of days, even though she had a great nanny at her service. The mother of one has also reportedly taken up the habit of going on a walk with her adorable child every day.
