Prince Harry and Meghan Markle offered a glimpse into their son Archie's first birthday celebration one week ago today! The big day was Wednesday, May 6, when they shared a video of Meghan reading with the birthday boy.
Now, new details have emerged about how Archie spent his first birthday. A source close to the family informed People that Meghan took on baking duties while Harry managed the home decor.
"Meghan made the cake — strawberries and cream," the source told People. "And Harry helped with decorations and blew up balloons."
Meghan's surprise for Archie was this strawberry "smash cake," which is one made with the expectation that a child will destroy it.
Baby Archie's first birthday was spent with family and friends
The source added that the birthday celebration included calls during a relaxed day at home. "They Zoomed with godparents, friends and family and had a really simple but incredibly joyous day."
As for Archie's "best friends"... Two of them were in attendance at the party. But in this case, social distancing wasn't a problem. The 1-year-old "is best friends with his dogs," the source told People. "They make him laugh and are gentle with him."
The family has two dogs: Guy, a beagle of Meghan's, and a black lab they adopted in 2018.
