ARCHIE, TWELVE MONTHS AWAY FROM THE MEDIA FOCUS
The little boy was born in complete privacy, away from the media focus, there was no photograph at the exit of the hospital as was customary for high-ranking members of the family, a decision that was a before and after in the relationship of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan with the British media.
In just two days, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor met his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, seldom received pampering from the English royal family.
Since then, no one has expected Hurricane “Megxit”, a decision that has turned around in the life of this little one who in less than six months has changed his residence three times in different countries: United Kingdom, Canada and now, since The coronavirus pandemic will break out in the United States.
In this year, there have been few public appearances of little Archie. Her performance at Windsor Castle, her intimate and secret christening and her appearance on her parents’ official trip to Africa last fall at a meeting with the Peace Prize, Desmond Tutu.
After their tour of the African continent, the Dukes of Sussex decided to take some time to reflect in Vancouver, a place chosen to show one more image of their son, seven months old.
Prince Harry and his wife decide to step back on their monarchical obligations, wish to be financially independent and lead their own solidarity works, away from Buckingham Palace.
