To celebrate, Meghan read him a special story for a charity (while Prince Harry filmed — listen for his laughs!! ?). The Sussexes chose to share the video on @savechildrenuk’s Instagram page to mark Archie’s special day. The Duchess read ‘Duck! Rabbit!’ to squirmy little Arch. He was already ready for book #2 halfway through! ? Love seeing this laid back side of the Sussexes!!! Happy Birthday, sweet Arch!!! ????
The sweet clip filmed last weekend in California met with great excitement from royal fans. Who noted how much Archie looked like Harry at the same age.
The family is currently living in a Malibu mansion with their son. Has officially stepped back from royal duties at the end of March and said to have opted for a low-key affair for the milestone while on lockdown. The smash cake has been huge in the US for several years and has now taken off in the UK. With celebrities adopting the messy trend. Coleen Rooney celebrated her son Cass’s second birthday with a professional cake smash photo session. That she uploaded to her Instagram account earlier this year.

It involves letting a one-year-old loose with a giant cake, usually while pictured by a professional photographer. Creating some cheeky and adorable shots, their mothers and fathers can treasure forever.
Babies playing with food can lead to a big mess. This is why the trend has now moved on to include the little ones having a bath after they have smashed a cake. Royal expert Kate Nicholl before claimed Harry and Meghan planned to treat Archie to an organic, sugar-free cake. Followed by a splash around in their pool and a video call with the Cambridge children as part of his birthday celebrations. The duchess would be keen to whip up a birthday cake for her little-one, adding that she loves being creative in the kitchen. But far from a sweet and sugary treat for Archie. The royal expert said it would likely be organic possibly sugar-free and suitably healthy for the family.
