Meghan Markle reveals new photograph of two-year-old son Archie feeding their chickens


Meghan Markle has revealed a new image of her and her husband Prince Harry‘s two-year-old son Archie.

In the image, the little boy is seen feeding chickens in the garden of his parents’ $19million home in Montecito, California, whilst wearing jeans, a grey t-shirt and yellow wellies. 

The photo, which does not show Archie’s face, was shown to viewers during Meghan’s wide-ranging interview with US tv host Ellen DeGeneres on Thursday.

It is the first time Archie has been seen since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex released a photo for his second birthday in May. 

That image also shielded Archie’s face from view, as did one which was released to mark International Women’s Day in March.  

In the wide-ranging interview with DeGeneres, Meghan opened up about her domestic life with Harry, Archie and five-month-old daughter Lilibet, whilst also renewing her calls for paid family leave in America.

Speaking of her family life she said Archie ‘loves being a big brother’ to her daughter Lilibet, who was born in June, and added that he ‘loves to dance’.    

The duchess said: ‘Someone told H (Harry) and I that when you have one kid it’s a hobby, and two children is parenting.

‘Suddenly we realised, ‘oh right’, everyone talks about what it’s like for the second child but no-one talks about the adjustment for the first child when the second one comes along.

‘I think they have that moment of, ‘oh, this is fun, oh, this is how it is now’.’

She also said that Harry ‘loves’ the weather and lifestyle in California.

The Duchess of Sussex said Archie ‘loves to dance’ and added she will do the cooking on Thanksgiving.

She told The Ellen Show: ‘I love to cook, we’ll be (at) home and just relax and sort of settle in. It’s our second Thanksgiving home at California, so it will be nice.’

DeGeneres then brought up that Meghan is a ‘great dancer’, to which the duchess replied: ‘I love to dance, Archie loves to dance now too.’ 

On the subject of paid parental leave, Meghan told close friend DeGeneres that she would do ‘everything’ in her power to make paid family leave law for all Americans.

The duchess recently stepped outside of royal protocol with a letter to US Congress asking them to consider making the proposal compulsory. 

However, she has come under fire for calling Republican senators and using her royal title to urge them to vote in favour of paid leave.

Republican Representative Jason Smith of Missouri, who has previously condemned Meghan for interference in American politics, even suggested she should be stripped of her title to stop her using it to gain political leverage.

Meghan told The Ellen Show: ‘I think that people truly forget, or don’t even know that in this country, it’s one of the only six countries in the entire world and the only wealthy nation in the entire world that does not mandate and have a federal paid leave programme.

‘Everybody knows, especially if you have had a child and even if you haven’t, you know how hard it is and how critical it is in those first few weeks if not months to be together as a family. 

‘And the fact that we don’t offer that here is something that now as a mom of two, I will do everything that I can to make sure that we can implement that for people.’ 

Meghan also promoted her children’s book The Bench, which she said she wrote as a poem for Harry on Father’s Day.
