Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are against their son spending too much time in front of the big screen. Instead, the doting parents try to teach him to enjoy playing outdoors.


When it comes to keeping parenting, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are against their son Archie watching too much television. They would rather he played outside.

Speaking to Closer Weekly, a source close to Meghan and Harry revealed that the couple believes it is vital for Archie to spend time outdoors as much as possible.

As a way of minimizing his time in front of the Television, Meghan and Harry have started introducing Archie to some activities he can enjoy outdoors. Though the tiny tot is too young to play sports, the source explained that Harry is already teaching his son how to kick a ball. The source added:

"One of Archie's favorite toys is his ball set. He's [also] obsessed with the dogs and loves playing fetch with them."


In addition to teaching him outdoor activities, Meghan and Harry are updating their Santa Barbara home's play area. The couple reportedly already purchased a swing for their young son.

Over the years, Harry's love for Rugby has been made public. Therefore his preference for outdoor activities is no surprise. Just last month, he reportedly said he could not wait to start teaching Archie how to play the sport in the outdoor space at their home.

The pair usually have interruptions from their little one who reportedly likes to make surprise appearances.


At the time, Harry also said he was grateful to have a place where Archie could play because he understands a lot of people have not had the opportunity to go outside amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Apart from what Meghan and Harry want, little Archie is already proving to be an outdoor lover himself. In March, an insider revealed that the tiny tot enjoys being outside in nature, just like his parents.


Meghan and Harry currently live in a luxurious nine-bedroom mansion in Santa Barbara, which they recently moved into. The couple purchased their new home months after announcing that they would be stepping down as working members of the royal family.

From the comfort of their home, Meghan and Harry have attended several virtual meetings and made virtual appearances amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Like most parents with young children, the pair usually have interruptions from their little one who reportedly likes to make surprise appearances in front of the web camera.

As parents, Meghan and Harry are ready to make the best decisions for their little boy. He is indeed lucky to have doting parents who will always look out for him.
