Royal fans got quite a look at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby during their visit to Africa, when Archie made his first appearance. The beaming parents and smiling happy baby gave royal watchers the fix they’d been looking for, but now that the Sussexes are back to their regular routine, many wonder when we’ll get another peek at the baby.
Prince Harry meets Markle’s pen pal
No doubt Prince Harry and Markle get asked about the baby wherever they go, not unlike most parents. Prince Harry shared the latest Archie update today and it’s so relatable to parents of a new baby.
Harry shared the latest during a touching exchange with a 14-year-old who has been pen pals with Markle for two years. Aleyna Genc met Harry during his visit to Nottingham for World Mental Health Day and gave him a toy dog, which she told him was for Archie.
Genc, who has been battling a brain tumor, started writing to Markle two years ago after seeing her give a speech at the UN.
Genc told Nottingham Post: “I wanted to tell her that she had inspired me and so I sent her a letter. We have been sending letters back and forth ever since then.”
Prince Harry was able to meet Genc and even had a voice message from Markle for the teen.
Prince Harry gives the latest baby Archie update
Genc shared the details of their meeting, noting: “It was amazing. It is a once-in-a-life time opportunity and I have already got to do it. He hugged me at the end too. He is so different to what I expected. I have been sending Meghan letters for around two years now and she sent me a voice note which I got to listen to on Harry’s phone. She basically wished me well.”
Genc then heard the latest Archie update after giving Harry the toy for the baby. She explained, “He said he hadn’t had much sleep recently because of Archie.”
Similarly, she told Press Association: “He said thank you and that he loved it,” adding, “He said he would love it because he hasn’t been able to sleep because of Archie for the past few days.”
Prince Harry and Ed Sheeran team up
In honor of World Mental Health Day, Prince Harry and singer Ed Sheeran got together for a funny video with a serious message. In the video, Sheeran met with Harry to talk about collaborating — only Sheeran was under the impression that the cause they were teaming up for involved gingers.
In the clip, Sheeran notes, “I’ve been trying to write a song about this to get it out to more people,” adding, “People just don’t understand what it’s like for people like us — with the jokes and the snide comments. I just feel like it’s time we stood up and said, ‘We’re not going to take this anymore. We are ginger and we are going to fight.’”
Prince Harry then clued Sheeran in, saying, “Um, okay… slightly awkward. There may have been a miscommunication — this is about World Mental Health Day.”
Sheeran then deletes the words “Gingers Unite” from his laptop, before the two share a message for mental health awareness. Prince Harry notes: “Reach out, make sure that your friends, strangers, look out for anybody that might be suffering in silence. We’re all in this together.”
