Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan celebrated their son Archie's milestone first birthday on May 6 by releasing a very cute video of the Duchess of Sussex reading to the birthday boy. In the clip, which was shared on Save the Children UK's Instagram, Meghan revealed the adorable nickname she has for her son, "Arch!"
The former Suits actress and Archie read Duck! Rabbit! together in the heartwarming video. The birthday boy was excited and eagerly tried to turn the pages himself. Proud mom Meghan could be heard encouraging him.
"Let's go to the next page," she said midway through the short story as she helped turn the pages. "Look, 'Arch.'"

Later in the video, she called her son by his full name.
"There, see! Look, Archie, it's flying!" she continued.
"Flying? He's hopping."
The lovable video continued with Archie excitedly flipping pages and even picking up a new book he appeared eager to read next!
When the Sussex family finished the short story, everyone cheered. The duke could be heard off-camera telling his son "bravo" and joining the excitement.
"Before SussexRoyal came the idea of 'arche' – the Greek word meaning 'source of action.'
"We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son's name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters."
They added, "Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right."
Royals fans will have to wait a bit longer to find out more about Archewell, but it is evident that "arche" really resonated with Harry and Meghan given that the charity as well as Archie's name and nickname are inspired by it!
