The short video, shot by Harry in California last weekend and posted on the #SAVEWITHSTORIES Instagram channel, shows Archie sitting on his mother’s lap turning the pages of Duck! Rabbit! as she reads to him.
Archie’s attention wanders (well, he is only 1 after all) and he throws another book to the floor causing the Duchess to laugh. Harry is heard cheering at the end of the story and Archie replies saying, “Da, da, da”.
