Archie Harrison’s joyful hobbies at home with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Archie, the couple’s three-year-old son, enjoys spending time at their Montecito, California, home, and his interests are delightfully unexpected, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently revealed.

We take a closer look at Duchess Meghan’s insights from her interview with The Cut, covering everything from petting farm animals at their very famous neighbor’s house to Archie’s favorite party activities, fruit picking, and even the non-traditionally royal skills that Prince Harry has developed during their father-son bonding time.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex previously told Oprah Winfrey that they have a chicken run at their house, but they have since developed a close relationship with their next-door neighbor Victoria Jackson, who owns a sizable ranch full of farm animals. The businesswoman and former makeup artist frequently invites the Sussex kids to her Santa Barbara farm.

In a statement to The Cut, Meghan claimed that Archie and their 1-year-old daughter Lilibet Diana had enjoyed their time there. “The kids have been over to pet Jackson’s mini-pigs,” she said.

Archie must have loved running around the expansive “petting zoo” since Meghan celebrated her 41st birthday there in August.

Like all toddlers, Archie, who has Meghan with him, enjoys going to classmates’ birthday parties. Archie has had a great time jumping in bouncy castles.

In fact, Meghan admitted to The Cut that “everyone was surprised” when the family showed up at one of his friend’s recent birthday parties. One mother was unsure whether she could accompany them inside, but Meghan urged her to do so.

Harry loves to beatbox and it appears that Archie enjoys dancing along with him whenever anyone needs a pick-me-up, especially if Archie or Lilibet are feeling a little sleepy from a nap.

Harry danced to his own beatboxing during Meghan’s most recent explosive interview, and the entire family joined in on the fun.

Since Harry and William both love rap so much that they invited Kanye West to be a part of the lineup for the “Concert for Diana” lineup back in 2017, which was held in memory of their late mother, there is no doubt that Archie will have something in common with his uncle Prince William.

It is understandable that young Archie has taken up fruit picking given that the Sussexes are currently residing in Santa Barbara, which once produced 40% of the nation’s total fruit production.

“A week’s worth of freshly picked fruit for his fellow classmates,” as described by Archie, will be waiting for him at the school gates.

Citrus fruits, figs, avocados, and bananas are the most plentiful fruits and vegetables in the area of the family’s Montecito home, but prickle-free mulberries are the most user-friendly fruit to pick.

The Sussexes are settling into their new life in California, and we can’t wait to see what interests and talents Archie picks up next after watching Harry fix his neighbor Victoria Jackson’s sprinklers.
