Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, witnessed their son Archie's "first steps, first run and first fall" during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Staying home during the pandemic meant they were able to be there for all of their 17-month-old's "firsts" the couple shared during a video chat with Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai to commemorate the International Day of the Girl

And while the pair admitted they've spent much of their time during lockdown "on Zoom" they've also been lucky to be home with Archie. 

"In so many ways, we are fortunate to be able to have this time to watch him grow and in the absence of Covid we would be travelling and working more externally and we’d miss a lot of those moments," Meghan said. 

"It’s been a lot of really good family time".
