Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Open Up About Baby Archie’s Huge Milestone (& Show Off Their Living Room Decor)

It sounds like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, has reached quite a few major milestones!

While having a virtual chat with education activist Malala Yousafzai for International Day of the Girl, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up about spending more quality time with their one-year-old, admitting that they were able to see him walk for the first time.

Prince Harry revealed, “We were both there for his first steps. His first run, his first fall, his first everything.”

Meghan added, “In so many ways we are fortunate to be able to have this time to watch him grow, and in the absence of COVID, we would be traveling and working more. We’d miss a lot of those moments.”

The royal couple did their interview from their living room, which happens to be a popular spot in their Santa Barbara estate. As seen in previous public recordings, the room features a cream sofa with patterned cushions, a colorful plant, and a trio of unique paintings.

The rare update on Archie comes only a few days after Markle opened up about how he’s kept them busy at home. While doing a video call with Evening Standard, she said, “We are doing well. [Archie] is so good. We are very lucky with our little one. He is just so busy, he is all over the place. He keeps us on our toes. We are just so lucky.”

And so is Archie to have such supportive parents!

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to members of the press prior to his departure from the White House on September 19, 2020 in Washington, DC. Democrats have held up a neon sign outside the White House reading “Trump lied, 200,000 died.”

The display reading “Trump lied, 200,000 died” was held up by several democrats and paid for by the DNC, WSET reported.

The sign was lit up on Sunday night as the U.S. is on the verge of hitting the 200,000 milestone for COVID-19 deaths.

As of late Monday morning, Johns Hopkins University places the death toll in the U.S. at 199,525—the highest in the world.

Democrats have accused Trump of misleading the public in claiming that the U.S. is starting to control the spread of the virus, when 31 states are reporting an increase in the number of confirmed cases.

Trump has also been widely criticized after he was recorded in March telling journalist Bob Woodward how he “wanted to always play it down” when asked what he knew about the potential dangers of the virus.

“I still like playing it down because I don’t want to create a panic,” Trump told Woodward.

Elsewhere, marches are set to take place across the country in protest at Trump’s handling of the outbreak as the 200,000 death toll approaches.

The Refuse Facism group has organized several rallies in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Boston this week. The events titled “March Against Death, Lies, and Fascism and For Humanity” are scheduled on Monday.

The group has accused Trump of “continuing to lie, assail science, traffic in conspiracy theories, hold super-spreading rallies, and sabotage attempts to contain the pandemic.” Organisers have also said they fear that Trump will not accept election defeat in November.

Most recent polling has suggested that Democratic nominee Joe Biden will win the upcoming election.

“We face a rolling coup barreling to a showdown on November 3. The Trump/Pence regime have said and shown that they will not abide by an election they lose,” Coco Das, of the RefuseFascism.org Editorial Board, said in a statement.

“A new path of sustained, non-violent protest is being blazed. A force is gathering that must grow that will not stop until this fascist regime is driven from power. We must make this OUR time, not Trump’s.”

“On Monday, September 21, we’ll take the next step,” Das added. “Marking the grim milestone of 200,000 COVID-19 deaths by holding nationwide marches with the resounding demand for an end to the death, lies, and fascist escalation.”
