Harry was behind the camera for the video, which was filmed for Save the Children UK's Save the Stories Campaign in the U.K. and United States. It is intended to help children during the coronavirus pandemic by providing an emergency grant to vulnerable families so they can buy food. It was created by Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams in the US, and Poppy Delevingne is supporting it across the pond.

It has been a while since royals fans last saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's son. To celebrate the beginning of 2020, the Sussexes posted a video to their old Sussex Royal Instagram on New Year's Eve, which featured the little boy with his beaming dad.

Prior to that, the Sussex family shared an adorable Christmas card GIF, which featured the toddler front and centre!

It is hard to believe Archie was born a year ago. The time has truly flown! The Sussex family grew by one when the duchess gave birth in the early morning on May 6, 2019. Meghan's labour and delivery were announced via social media.

The world would first see the newborn on May 8, when the ecstatic couple introduced him at St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.

"He's just been the dream, so it’s been a special couple of days,” new mom Meghan revealed at the time, adding that they were still trying to figure out who Archie took after!

On May 9, just three days after his birth, Meghan and Harry released photos of their son meeting his great-grandmother, the Queen, and his grandmother, Doria Ragland. The Instagram post also revealed the little guy's full name: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, or Archie Harrison for short.

The Sussexes' only child was christened in a beautiful, private ceremony in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle on July 6 – and the couple marked the occasion with beautiful portraits.

Since then, Archie has travelled the world, including going on his first royal tour to southern Africa, jetting to Canada and the United States. He is currently believed to be living in Los Angeles, Meghan's hometown, after spending time in a home on Vancouver Island as Harry and Meghan transitioned out of their official royal roles.

The last few weeks have been filled with milestone moments for the Royal Family. Archie's great-grandmother, the Queen, celebrated her 94th birthday on April 21 and reportedly received a video call from the Sussexes on the big day. Cousin Prince Louis turned two on April 23, and Duchess Kate and Prince William marked their ninth wedding anniversary on April 29. Furthermore, Princess Charlotte feted her fifth birthday on May 5.

The celebrations aren't quite over yet! Archie's parents will commemorate their second wedding anniversary on May 19.
