Master Archie Goes Through A Roller Coaster Of Baby Motions While Meghan Markle Reads A Book To Him For His Birthday

May 6, 2020 / Posted by:

Insert GloriaStuartsItsBeen84Years.GIF right here, because it was only a year ago when little Archie Mountbatten-Windsor became the seventh in line to the British throne by being born and for me, it feels like it’s been an entire lifetime since lots of shit (see: this tag full of approximately 16 billion posts) has happened since then. But it’s only his first birthday and here he is being forced to complete the impossible baby task of sitting still for more than 15 seconds as his mom Meghan Markle says a bunch of words he doesn’t really understand.

Even though Prince Hot Ginge and Meghan are no longer senior royals, they still did the royal tradition of sharing images of their child on his birthday. For the first anniversary of Master Archie’s born day, Meghan read a story to him to raise money for Save The Children UK. If Meghan wants to save a child, she’ll start with her own by saving him from boredom by not spending 3 minutes (which is 52 hours in baby time) to read some story!

As Prince Hot Ginge filmed from their Los Angeles quarantine lair, Meghan read a story to Harry’s Mini-Me called Duck! Rabbit! about an animal who could be a duck or could be a rabbit. It’s the children’s version of that blue dress/gold dress thing.

In the span of a minute, Archie (or “Arch” as Meghan sometimes calls him) laughs, cries over shit not moving fast enough, and then cries again before getting bored. It’s like me watching that HBO show Run. And at one point, Meghan shows him the duck rabbit and Archie is obviously thinking, “Um, that’s not a duck or a rabbit. It’s obviously spoon chopsticks!

And at one point, Archie wanted to change the channel and pulled out an entirely different book (no, not an advanced copy of Finding Freedom):

But they got through the tale of that dubbit and Archie rewarded himself with a vegan snack (he’s already sooooo L.A. now) of paper while giving his official review of four out of five slobber globs:

Here’s the whole video:

Archie also got birthday love from Uncle P. Willy, Auntie Kate, and their family:

And from Great-memaw Liz and Great-pepaw Phil:

And Pepaw Charles and Memaw Camilla:

But back to that book, some have noticed a sticker on Archie’s copy of Duck! Rabbit! that reads “Archie’s Book Club.”

Well, Archie sadly didn’t get that rumored star-filled lavish birthday party, but it’s probably a good thing. Because Oprah was a rumored guest and Archie really doesn’t need to deal with her coming at him like, “Why did you give MY impeccable book club pick only four out of five slobber globs?!
