Baby Archie Is Growing Up! See Everything Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Son Has Accomplished

Can you believe how quickly Baby Archie is growing up? It seems like just yesterday when Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child in May 2019, and fans love seeing how much the royal tot has already accomplished.

Since becoming the mom and dad of Archie Harrison, the Duke of Sussex and the former Suits actress have made a seemingly effortless transition into parenthood. From the very first moment they held their only child in their arms, Harry said he’s been doing everything he can to be the best father.

“I’m struck by a few things, most of which is the power of the invisible role model,” he shared while speaking at a conference in July 2019. “Perhaps it’s the newfound clarity I have as a father, knowing that my son will always be watching what I do, mimicking my behavior, one day maybe even following in my footsteps.”

Harry and Meghan were living with Archie in the U.K. for the first half of his life, but the couple moved to North America when they stepped back from their royal duties in January 2020. The royals said they wanted to focus on their family while becoming “financially independent” from Queen Elizabeth.

“We now plan to balance our time between the U.K. and North America, continuing to honor our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth and our patronages,” the duo explained in their statement. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter.”

Shortly after, the handsome hunk and the Deal or No Deal alum relocated to Canada, where they stayed for less than two months before moving to L.A. They later purchased a massive mansion in Santa Barbara for nearly $15 million in early August 2020.

“The house has a Mediterranean vibe to it — French doors and archways and a pool,” the insider told Closer Weekly. “It’s beautiful and spacious, but not too over-the-top. It’s the perfect place for Archie to grow up.”

Pretty soon, Archie will have a young sibling to run around the house and play with! On Valentine’s Day 2021, Meghan and Harry announced they are expecting baby No. 2, later revealing Meghan is pregnant with a baby girl during their CBS tell-all interview in March.

Archie can’t wait to meet his baby sister and loves putting his hand on his mummy’s tummy and feeling the baby move,” a source told Life & Style in April 2021. “He’s such a caring, bright, loving little boy and is super advanced for his age.”
