Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son has just started talking and already has his first four words down pat.

A royal insider told US Weekly, “He’s saying a few words, like 'Dada,' 'Mama,' 'book,' and 'dog.'”

The source also let us in on a few of the tiny royal's preferred pastimes: “He loves playing hide-and-seek and using building blocks.” Again: very cute!

It is no wonder Arch already knows, “Mama” and “Dada”, but “book” and “dog” make a lot of sense for baby Archie, too.


It is no surprise the toddler is already on his way to becoming a wiz at words, judging from Meghan reading her son Duck! Rabbit! during quarantine.

“Dog” appears to be a word already in Archie’s vocabulary as he adores his family pets, Guy the beagle and a black Labrador whose name has not been made public.
