Meghan Markle, 39, and Prince Harry, 36, enjoyed their small family time during the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took part in a video chat with Malala Yousafzai, 23, from the sofa of their villa in Montecito, to commemorate “International Girls’ Day”.

Pakistani activist Yousafzai not only discussed women’s education, but also asked parents about their quarantine activities with their 15-month-old son Archie.
“How do you spend your time during COVID?” Yousafzai asked, whereupon Harry, 36, quipped: “Zoom in!”
Meghan added that the two “outside” virtual calls spend time with “the little one”, Archie, and even witnessed his first steps.
First steps, first fall of Archie
“We were both there for his first steps, his first run, his first fall, his first everything,” Harry said.
Meghan and Harry, who resigned as “high-ranking” royals earlier this year, recently moved to their Montecito, Calif. Estate. Meghan said Sunday she and Harry were happy to have had a good time with their son.
“If it hadn’t been for Covid, we would have missed many of these steps.”
“It’s just fantastic because I think that in many ways we are fortunate enough to have this time to watch it grow. If it weren’t for COVID, we would have been traveling a lot more and working a lot more outdoors and a lot of these Missed moments, “explains the former actress.” It’s been a lot of really good family time. “
“These are really special moments, but at the same time, as Meghan says, we’ve worked really, really hard and understand how challenging this is for absolutely everyone,” Harry added. “And I think the longer it takes, the more it will be felt especially from a mental health perspective.”
