Oprah Made This Special Contribution To Baby Archie's First Birthday Celebration!

Family friend Oprah Winfrey sent a special gift to the Sussexes for Archie's first birthday! It was front and centre in Archie's birthday video, too. Find out below...

It's true! Oprah Winfrey provided Archie with the book that was featured in the one-year-old's birthday video. The TV presenter and media mogul gifted Duck! Rabbit! to Archie for his birthday.

On Friday, Entertainment Tonight confirmed the story with a representative of Winfrey.

Oprah started Archie's Book Club for Harry & Meghan's son

Speculation on the origin of the book began after royal fans noticed a sticker on the cover which read "Archie's Book Club."

Winfrey, of course, is famous for her own "Oprah's Book Club" stamp of approval, which led some to make the connection.

Oprah is known to be a friend of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's. She was even spotted in attendance at the royal couple's wedding in Windsor back in 2018.

Archie's first birthday video was for a good cause

It remains to be seen if Archie's Book Club will expand into a venture to encourage reading for children, or if this one is specially reserved for the little royal.

Either way, Oprah's gift went toward a good cause. Meghan and Archie's birthday reading video was posted on the Save the Children UK's Instagram page. In the post, viewers are encouraged to donate to the organization and its COVID-19 relief campaign called Save with Stories.
