Eagle-eyed supporters of Meghan and Prince Harry have noticed a small sticker on the front page of the book the Duchess was reading to her son in the video released earlier today. The ‘Duck! Rabbit!’ book held by Meghan and Archie presents a pale blue sticker reading “Archie’s Book Club”.
The little detail sparked joy for some of the Sussexes fans, with one writing on Twitter: “There’s a sticker on that book with ‘Archie’s Book Club’.
“I can’t deal with so much cuteness”.
Another said: “I am officially joining Archie’s Book Club”.
And a third added: “Archie’s Book Club. Where do I sign up?”
Other royal fans believe the sticker may be a clue the book was a present given Archie by a well-known American presenter, Oprah Winfrey.
One social media user said: “The book they’re reading could be a gift from Oprah.
“It has an ‘Archie’s Book Club’ sticker on the front and Oprah likes to give personalised ‘book clubs’ as a baby gift.”
Another, adding a winky face, said: “Archie‘s book club, as in a gift from Oprah?”
Oprah famously ran a book discussion club segment during her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, in which she highlighted the books she deemed worthy of attention.
Over 15 years, the club recommended 70 books.
Prince Harry and Meghan decided to mark the first birthday of their son by sharing a video on Save the Children UK’s Instagram page in support of one of the charity’s initiative, Save With Stories.
This initiative aims at raising money for children around the world who have been hit the hardest by COVID-19 whilst highlighting the plight of millions of pupils whose education has been disrupted by the virus.
The caption to the video read: “Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex reads ‘Duck! Rabbit!’ for Archie’s birthday
“‘Duck! Rabbit!’ with Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex (and Harry, The Duke of Sussex behind the camera), read to their son Archie for his 1st birthday. Happy Birthday, Archie!
“Thank you #DuchessMeghan for helping us to raise urgent funds for our coronavirus appeal by reading ‘Duck! Rabbit’ by @akrfoundation, illustrated by @tlichtenheld (published by @chroniclekidsbooks).
“As the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, children’s lives are being turned upside down.
“By donating to Save with Stories, you can support the most vulnerable families in the UK and around the world by helping to provide early learning packs, supermarket vouchers, essential household items and virus protection.”
A spokesperson for the Sussexes said following the publication of the video: “The family is participating in the campaign across both the US and UK to help bring much-needed support to children who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As they celebrate this family moment, the Duke and Duchess wanted to continue to raise awareness around the urgency of bringing food and learning resources to millions of children.”
This video marked the first images Meghan and Harry have shared of Archie since New Year’s Eve, when the Sussexes published on their Instagram page an adorable picture of their son wrapped up in a brown coat while in the arms of his father.
