In one month, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son Archie will turn one year old. And after living in England and Canada with his parents, he's now settling in Los Angeles with Meghan and Harry. People got a little update on how Archie is doing these days.
A friend told the outlet that Archie is a "cute" and content baby. Now, “like everyone, they are adjusting to [social distancing], being cautious and safe,” the source said. Their son is “teething and is a happy baby. I’m sure he is happy to be in the California sunshine.”
Meghan said last month that Archie was on the cusp of a major milestone while doing her final series of events as a working royal in England. She said that Archie “started trying to walk" and revealed her son's impact on her: "Having Archie changed my life."
The Duchess of Sussex also told Endeavour Fund Awards attendee Claire Spencer that Archie "is into everything" these days.
Meghan and Harry haven't shared much more about their son. Their last photo of him was posted on New Year's Eve: a shot of Archie and his dad Harry on Vancouver Island.
Today, April 1, marks the first day of Meghan and Harry's formal transition out of their senior royal family roles. The couple's Buckingham Palace office is closed, and they plan to announce their new non-profit in the future.
The couple shared a wrap-up message on their Instagram earlier this week.
As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile. Yet we are confident that every human being has the potential and opportunity to make a difference—as seen now across the globe, in our families, our communities and those on the front line—together we can lift each other up to realize the fullness of that promise.
What’s most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic.
As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute.
While you may not see us here, the work continues.
Thank you to this community—for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You’ve been great!
Until then, please take good care of yourselves, and of one another.
Harry and Meghan
