Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave a rare update on their young son Archie this week.

The couple took part in a candid interview from their home, with the Evening Standard to mark the start of Black History Month when they spoke about their little one.

“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,” the Duchess of Sussex said. The family recently moved to Montecito, California after stepping down from their duties as senior royals in March, earlier this year. During the interview, the couple honestly spoke up about the issues surrounding the Black Lives Matter campaign, with Prince Harry admitting that “the world that we know has been created by white people for white people.”

Since stepping down from their senior royal duties, both Meghan and Harry have been very busy. After recently announcing a multi-year deal with streaming platform Netflix, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been actively partaking in interviews for different causes. Prince Harry has stated the couple’s awareness that their views “may seem controversial,” however, the pair have become increasingly vocal on various social issues.

Most recently, Meghan and Harry made their first joint television appearance since stepping back from their royal roles, when they appeared on the special broadcast of the unveiling of the ‘Time 100, 2020’, Time’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people. During their appearance, the duo also took the time to speak about social issues, with particular reference to the upcoming US elections and the power that online media can have. “As we work to re-imagine the world around us, let’s challenge ourselves to build communities of compassion. Seeing our world through the lens of community is so important. Because we need to redraw the lines of how we engage with each other, both online and off,” Markle said. “What we’re exposed to online seeps into how we engage with each other offline. It can train us to be kind, or it can train us to be cruel.”
