The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has provided them with quality family time with their one-year-old son, Archie.
During a video chat with Malala Yousafzai to mark International Day of the Girl, Harry and Meghan were asked about how they have spent time during the pandemic.
Malala asked: “How are you spending your time in COVID?” to which Harry said: “On Zoom!”
Meghan added that besides discussions on video calls that she and Harry have enjoyed time with their son in their California home where they were able to see his first steps.
The Duke of Sussex said: “We were both there for his first steps, his first run, his first fall, his first everything.”
The Duchess spoke of how they were “fortunate” that they’ve been able to have such quality time with their son because if the pandemic hadn’t hit, they would have been busier with engagements.
“It’s just fantastic because I think 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 travelling and working more externally and we’d miss a lot of those moments. It’s been a lot of really good family time,” she said.
Their son, Archie, celebrated his first birthday on 6 May in his mother’s home state.
