(Newser) – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released a video of their son being read his favorite book to mark his first birthday, per Today. Harry holds the camera while Markle holds Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on her lap. Giggling and babbling, Archie helpfully turns the pages of Duck! Rabbit! before grabbing another book, which falls to the ground. Markle picks it up, tucking it beside her on the chair, but Archie grabs it again, throwing it to the floor. He then looks toward his father, who's laughing.

The video was released on the Instagram account of the UK charity Save the Children as it raises money to help children affected by the coronavirus pandemic, per Sky News, which notes Archie was previously filmed only during his lone formal engagement, a meeting with Desmond Tutu in South Africa last September. Celebrities including Amy Adams, Jennifer Garner, and Eddie Redmayne have also taken part in the #SaveWithStories campaign, which provides learning materials, food vouchers, and household items to families in need.
