Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was recently pictured with his pregnant mother, Meghan Markle, as she was taking him to school.
Prince Harry‘s wife and young son were casually dressed in the leaked photo as they enjoyed the walk.
Archie, who will celebrate his 2nd birthday on May 6th, looked cute as a button in jeans, a sweatshirt, beanie and had a lovely green backpack, while mom Meghan carried his space-themed lunchbox.
Royally Obsessed podcast host Rachel Bowie weighed in on the photo by saying that she was worried to see the paparazzi photo because Meghan Markle is well advanced in her pregnancy.
She went on to praise Prince Harry and his wife for taking measures to protect their privacy and for finding ways to avoid having their child’s photo taken by the paparazzi.
Bowie told listeners: “I think we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the timing of the paparazzi photos we saw of Meghan and Archie. I think that was definitely surprising to see. Fortunately for the Sussexes, we haven’t had a lot of that. I think the last ones were in Canada where we really got a glimpse.”
She continued: “But there was a lot of coverage about the timing of that. “Was that something where they were snapped and held? It raises a lot of issues. We haven’t see pap pictures of Meghan and Harry, and I’ve been so relieved about that. It’s. They such an eventful spring, and I was worried the cameras would really go for them.”
Bowie explained why she is afraid to see the leaked photos of the former actress and her son.
She praised the royal couple and added: “They’ve maintained the privacy that I think they deserve and want. It always puts a pit in my stomach when I see paparazzi photos, especially with Archie in them. The timing of that felt unfortunate to me too that the paparazzi would do something like that.”
The author concluded by: “Meghan looked great, they both looked so cute. But I want them to have the space that they need, especially at this stage of her pregnancy.”

Meanwhile, it is being claimed that even though Prince Harry and Prince William‘s children will grow up miles away from one another, they will have a great bond and friendship, according to a royal author.
Archie was just a baby when he left London and became a California resident with his parents — Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Many believe that the young cousins — Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Archie — have been able to stay in touch via Zoom amid the countless rumors and fallouts because of Megxit and the Oprah Winfrey interview where racist accusations were made.
Royal expert Ingrid Seward claimed that the Cambridges’ children will view Archie as the cool, rock star cousin from California, and they will appreciate him when they are older.
She further explained: “I am sure Diana would have wanted her sons’ offspring to be friends as she would have known how difficult it is to form friendships outside the family as people cannot be trusted not to let some indiscretion slip out. How cool to have a Californian cousin who is going to be such a dude as Archie.”
She added: “So they may not have the childhood bond, which they really don’t need as they have lots of little friends, but they will really appreciate Archie later on in their lives.”
The rosy prediction is clouded by the current tensions between the parents.
