Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, marked her son Archie's first birthday by reading for charity. In a video filmed by Prince Harry, she read aloud from the children's book "Duck! Rabbit!" as Archie played on her lap. The video was released on social media by Save The Children UK, a charity that teamed up with the couple to raise funds for children affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

"Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex reads "Duck! Rabbit!" for Archie's birthday," wrote Save The Children UK on Instagram while thanking her for helping them raise urgent funds for their coronavirus appeal.

Other members of the royal family also took to social media to commemorate Archie's big day. Prince William and Kate took to Instagram to wish their nephew Archie on his first birthday. 

In an Instagram post shared from their Kensington Royal account, Prince William and Kate wished Archie "a very happy first birthday". They also posted a family portrait taken on the day of Archie's christening. It shows the little royal in a christening gown that has been worn by 62 royal babies over the course of 163 years, according to Town and Country Magazine

The official Instagram account of the royal family shared a photo of Queen Elizabeth with her eighth great-grandchild to mark his first birthday. "Happy Birthday to Archie Mountbatten-Windsor who is celebrating his 1st birthday today!" they wrote while sharing the photo, which was clicked shortly after Archie's birth and also shows Meghan's mother in the frame.

Archie is believed to be spending a quiet first birthday in Los Angeles, where his parents relocated in March this year.
