Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, celebrated the first birthday of their son Archie with a special video on Instagram, that included the a story session for the young bub.

Rabbit’, as part of the #SaveWithStories initiative launched during the coronavirus pandemic that has seen celebrities such as Amy Adams and Jennifer Garner also take to social media with special story hour sessions.

Dressed in a casual denim shirt and shorts, with her hair tied up in a messy bun, Meghan goes on to read the picture book to Archie, who appears eager to participate by flipping the pages by himself. Prince Harry, who appears to be taking the video, can be heard encouraging his son towards the end of the storybook session.
