In a statement, the couple said “Duck! Rabbit!,” is one of Archie’s “favorite” books. The story by Amy Krouse Rosenthal is about the optical illusion where a picture looks like both a duck and a rabbit.

In the adorable video, Meghan is glowing as she holds Archie with one arm and reads the book to him and also shows the pictures to the camera.

The video is part of the “Save with Stories,” campaign from Save the Children which is raising money for children being affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Other celebrities who have participated include Eddie Redmayne and Jennifer Garner.

“As the world grapples with the coronavirus pandemic, children’s lives are being turned upside down,” the Instagram post reads, “By donating to Save with Stories, you can support the most vulnerable families in the UK and around the world by helping to provide early learning packs, supermarket vouchers, essential household items, and virus protection.”
