A very cute royal update: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son, Archie Harrison, is starting to talk, and he's already nailed his first four words. A royal insider told Us Weekly, "He’s saying a few words, like 'Dada,' 'Mama,' 'book,' and 'dog.'" What's more, the source shared a few of the littlest royal's preferred pastimes: "He loves playing hide-and-seek and using building blocks." Again: very cute!
This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

As first words, "Mama" and "Dada" need little explanation—but "book" and "dog" make a lot of sense for baby Archie, too. Reading is evidently a favorite activity in the Sussex household, as demonstrated by Archie's first birthday video, in which Meghan reads her son Duck! Rabbit! Baby Sussex, the video reveals, is already a pro at turning the book's pages, so it's no surprise "book" is among his first words.
As for "dog": Archie reportedly adores the family's two dogs, Guy the beagle and a black Labrador whose name the Sussexes haven't revealed. On his first birthday, which took place during quarantine, he spent a lot of time playing with the royal pups, as well as enjoying his first birthday cake (a smash cake made by Meghan) and seeing friends and relatives via Zoom. The dogs are his "best friends," a source told People, adding, "They make him laugh and are gentle with him." Once more: cute!
