Meghan Markle and Harry’s little boy Archie ‘loves butting in on Zoom calls’

Little Archie loves butting in on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Zoom calls, it has been claimed.

The couple’s son, who turned one in May, is now living with his parents in Los Angeles after they quit as senior members of the Royal Family.

Meghan, 39, and Harry, 35, have been active on Zoom during lockdown, taking part in a number of calls with various charities and organisations.

Royal correspondent Omid Scobie said Archie loves to join his parents during important calls sometimes.

Omid, co-author of the latest book Finding Freedom, made the revelations in his podcast, The Heir Pod.

Explaining the research behind the book, he said: “I loved discovering their daily Zoom calls with the various initiatives and people that they work with.

“And how Archie is no stranger to climbing in front of the web camera and making little impromptu cameos.” 

To mark Rugby League’s 125th birthday, Prince Harry joined a Zoom quiz of players, coaches and volunteers from the sport.

Speaking from his Santa Barbara mansion, The Duke of Sussex said: “We’ve got a whole Rugby League world cup coming next year.

“I definitely plan on coming back. I would have been back already had it not been for Covid.”

Harry said the sport had “thrived” since its birth in 1895 and added: “Watching Rugby League is exhausting.

“Listen I spent 10 years in the army, I know what endurance is all about. But it’s madness.

“Full respect to anyone that plays the game, I think it’s amazing, and a lot of people would be jealous not to be part of that community.”

It comes as Harry and Meghan reached a deal with streaming giant Netflix to make a range of programmes, some of which they may appear in.

“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” said the couple.

“As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us,” they continued.

Netflix chief Ted Sarandos said he was “incredibly proud” the royal couple had made the company “their creative home”.

The deal could also include a tribute to Prince Harry’s mum Diana, the Sunday Mirror reveals.

If it gets the green light Prince William will be informed – but insiders fear it could fuel the brothers’ already painful rift.

A source said: “The Sussexes are discussing making a feature documentary on Princess Diana’s family history and heritage.

“It is early stages but it is looking like it could happen.

“It will work as a tribute to Diana and build on all the incredible charity work she has done. Netflix would also love to make a documentary about Diana and it is something they have been pushing for.”

But of the impact on the princes, the source added: “William and Harry have a difficult relationship and they haven’t spoken for three months.

“These plans could further antagonise their fallout. If it does happen William will be the first to know.”
