It’s rare these days that we get a glimpse inside Meghan and Harry’s LA life but the Duchess of Sussex basically just invited us to their first Halloween with Archie and Lilibet.
The family kept things low-key this year and stayed at their California home on their own – aside, of course, from a visit from famous neighbours Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. How Hollywood?
In the spirit of all things spooky, Meghan bought adorable costumes for the children but revealed in a new chat on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that the kids weren't so keen: "We wanted to do something fun for the kids but the kids were just not into it at all.”
Meghan told Ellen: “[Lilibet] was a little skunk… like Flower from Bambi…Archie was a dinosaur for maybe five minutes.” We *need* to see pics asap – so cute.
But Ellen corrected: “No, not even for five minutes. Finally, Harry talked him into having the head on."

This Halloween was their first as a family of four after Meghan gave birth to Lilibet back in June this year. In the same interview, Meghan revealed that two-year-old Archie is ‘loving’ being a big brother but that five-month-old Lili is currently teething so there’s surely a few sleepless nights in the Mountbatten-Windsor household.
There’s no doubt things look a little different these days for Meghan and Harry, who spent their very first Halloween together sneaking into parties before it was officially revealed that they were an item in 2016. However, Meghan went on tell Ellen that seeing 'H' become a parent has been "the most beautiful thing to watch" – so much so that it inspired her recent children's book, The Bench, which actually started out as a sentimental Father's Day poem for her husband.
Two-year-old Archie features in the picture book (along with the two family pooches Pula and Guy) and he has already started to get excited about seeing himself on the pages.
They've made a conscious effort to dedicate as much time to family as possible lately after admitting that the first few weeks after welcoming their second baby was quite 'overwhelming' in an open letter to US politicians. As a couple, they were entitled to 20-weeks of parental leave but Meghan is currently campaigning for parental leave to become a national right in the US.
