A New York Times reporter recalled the amusing time Prince Harry and Meghan Markle started dancing to try and cheer up their daughter Lilibet.
Allison P. Davis had the unique opportunity to see how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their two children, Archie and Lilibet, live in their LA home.
The writer was given the opportunity to pick up Archie from preschool with Meghan as part of her experience, but it was their return that provided the truly touching moment. She described how Lilibet and her nanny met Meghan and Archie at the door when they got out of the car.
Harry is claimed to have taken the lead as all eyes shifted to the cute child, as the report in The Cut stated.
“We pull up to the house, and Archie leaps out. Harry is ending a phone call as Archie throws himself around his legs,” says Allison.
“Lilibet, unsmiling with watchful bright-blue eyes, is brought out by her nanny. She is small and also ginger, and when there is a small person in the room not smiling, it is a reflex to do anything to entertain them,” she added.
“Harry starts dancing to his own beatboxing, and Meghan bends down and joins in and then I find myself doing it too, until she gives a lopsided smile and we all realize it’s a bit strange to be bonding in this way.”
Even though the moment is short, other parents who will do anything to make their infants or toddlers smile find resonance in it.
A glance at the private life of Meghan and Harry
For Meghan and Harry, however, a glimpse into family life is incredibly rare as they live their lives apart from their past responsibilities as senior royals.
The couple made the choice to take a backseat and relocate their family to the US.
Archie’s response to seeing his mother at the school gates was mentioned by author Allison as part of her piece with the royal couple.”He’s so excited to see her,” she wrote. “Repeating ‘Momma, Momma, Momma’ in his little voice, as he runs toward her that he leaves his lunchbox behind on the ground.”
The Duchess had a black backpack hidden away that contained food and beverages for a homeless guy who had been sitting on a street corner, Allison saw.
“At a stoplight, she [Meghan] reaches into the trunk and produces a brand-new black backpack and hands it to her security detail to give to an unhoused man on the corner.”
