Meghan and Harry talk to Malala Yousafzai about Archie’s first steps

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spoke to Pakistani education attorney Malala Yousafzai about their son Archie’s milestones during a video call.

Harry and Meghan picked the call for International Girls’ Day, October 11th.

During the chat Malala asked the couple How they spent their time during the pandemic and Prince Harry, 36, said it was a special time for both of them when Archie, now 18 months old, took his first steps and they were both there to see her.

“We were both there for his first steps, his first run, his first fall, his first everything,” he said.

Meghan, 39, said they were “lucky” to have time with their son.

“It’s just fantastic because I think that in so many ways we were lucky enough to have this time to watch it grow and without Covid we would be more outside traveling and working and missing out on a lot of those moments.” She said .

“I think it was a lot of really good family time.”

Malala Yousafzai was targeted by the Taliban after she started campaigning for girls in Pakistan at the age of 15.

A gunman from the group shot and killed Malala and two other girls after boarding a bus on October 9, 2012 after taking a school exam.

Malala was shot in the head but survived the attack and won the Nobel Prize at the age of 17. This made her the youngest person to receive the award.

The trio talked about education for equal opportunities, and Meghan said they raised their son “in a way that his diet is about educational substance and how to learn and how to grow”.

Harry also talked about how busy they were during their time in lockdown and joked about the number of Zoom calls they made.

“These are really special moments [with Archie] But at the same time as Meghan says we’ve been working really, really hard because we fully understand and understand how challenging this is for absolutely everyone, and I think the longer it takes, the more obviously it will be felt , especially from a psychological point of view.

“So this is a really unified moment to bring everyone together and acknowledge what everyone has been through. That traumatic experience wherever you are in the world. “

They discussed research by the Malala Fund showing the impact of the pandemic on the education of girls around the world. Data shows that many will not return to school after the crisis has ended.

“We take it for granted and it’s a privilege, but every single person, every single child, every single young person needs an education,” Harry said.

“Knowing that there are currently more than 130 million girls untrained before the pandemic and the numbers are only going to rise worries me and probably worries all of us, which will affect not just the population individually, but the family and the community, for the country and the world at large. “

He added, “I am very grateful for the education I was fortunate to receive, I probably wasn’t so grateful at the time, but looking back now, I am very, very blessed to have such amazing opportunities. “

Meghan spoke of her own school experience and said: “The privilege of going to school is often a given in my opinion.

“It is very difficult for many people to see that the ability to have a textbook is a luxury for so many people, having grown up where there are plenty of books and where I can whet my appetite and keep studying when I can I’m inside on the school grounds or when I got home. “

Meghan had previously spoken to a group of California high school students on their youth therapy podcast on World Mental Health Day on October 10 and said she was the “most trolled person in the world” in 2019.

“For eight months of that, I wasn’t even visible – I was on maternity leave or with a baby,” she said. “But what could be manufactured and produced is almost impossible to survive.

“I don’t care if you’re 15 or 25 – when people say things about you that are not true, what it means to your mental and emotional health is so detrimental.”
