Royal fans had been hoping to see a glimpse of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor today as the youngster celebrates his first birthday, and they are in luck. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have just released a very sweet video of Meghan reading a story to her son to mark the celebration and to help raise money for Save The Children.

In the video, Meghan can be seen reading Archie one of his favourite books 'Duck! Rabbit?' as he sits on her lap and helps her to turn the pages.

The video was shared on the Save The Children Instagram account this afternoon in support of the charity's Save With Stories initiative, aimed at helping children hardest hit by the Covid-19 crisis both here in the UK and around the world. If you'd like to donate to the cause, head to the Save The Children website here or you can text 'STORIES' to 70008 to give a one-off donation of £5.

"The family is participating in the campaign across both the US and UK to help bring much-needed support to children who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic," a spokesperson for the couple said. "As they celebrate this family moment, the duke and duchess wanted to continue to raise awareness around the urgency of bringing food and learning resources to millions of children."

The film was shot by Harry in California last weekend, where they family is currently self-isolating. This is the first glimpse the world has had of the young royal since New Year's Eve when the couple shared a sweet snap of Harry and Archie in matching hats during their trip to Canada.
