Meghan Markle Reveals Why Son Archie, 4, Isn’t Getting His Top Item on His Christmas List

Meghan Markle is admitting that her son, Archie, isn’t getting what he’s hoping to receive under the tree this year for Christmas.

While on a recent panel, with friend and well-known photographer Misan Harriman, Markle revealed that Archie has found a hobby that he’s fallen in love with. Archie, like his grandmother, the late queen, and his aunt, Katherine Middleton, Archie loves to take photos.

“The inspiration runs deep,” Meghan said while speaking about her son’s passions. “Our 4-year-old, 4 ½ -year-old son — he would say, ‘No, I’m not 4. I’m 4 ½’ — Misan was showing him how to do photography the last time he was with us.”

As Meghan continued, she noticed the love Archie had for photography and decided to buy “Archie a camera, and he said, ‘But it’s not a Leica like Misan,'” Meghan admitted with a laugh. “I said, ‘You are not getting a Leica! Not even for Christmas.’” 

A quick Google search reveals Leica cameras are handcrafted and can run upwards of $9,000. YIKES!

Meghan continued, directing her attention to Misan, who sat on stage with her during the Q&A to say, “So thank you for the inspiration across the board.”

Many fans were excited early last week when Meghan and Harry shared their Christmas card with the public. However, some were disappointed that the card didn’t showcase an updated photo of their two little ones, which also includes Lilibet.
