It seems that Prince Harry of Meghan Markle yesterday announced his engagement, and now they are not only happily married, but also parents of a delightful little son, Archie Harrison.
Anyone who has children can attest to the fact that it is far from easy to be a parent. We are constantly faced with important decisions that affect the lives of our children, and unfortunately there is no official rules for parenting.
Most parents, however, have to make private decisions of their parents not exactly the case for members of the royal family. Everything they do is being watched and criticized, and the news media are not hesitating to share their opinion.
Now that Meghan and Harry are parents, many people are looking at them even more than before. Why are Duke and Duchess of Sussex a perfect example of modern parenting?
They keep Archie out of the limelight
Baby Archie is barely four months old and already royal fans want to see as much of him as possible. However, Meghan and Harry are quite determined to keep their son out of the royal spotlight for the time being. They moved away from London to lead a quieter life for Archie in the rural town of Windsor, and they do everything they can to make their childhood easier.
According to Us Weekly, new mom Meghan is definitely enjoying her new home in Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, unlike the high-profile city of London, where she and Harry had virtually no privacy.
Meghan and Harry Be Careful with What Is Shared Online
In the past, everything that happened in the life of the Royals took days to reach the public. Nowadays, photos are shared almost instantaneously, and the latest news comes to us thanks to the internet. While the media would love it if the lives of Meghan, Harry, and Archie were an open book, parents are very careful about what's shared online about their son.
Vanity Fair reports that the Duke and Duchess did not disclose details about Archie's godparents, though the royal fans really wanted to know. In addition, they were silent about where Meghan would give birth, and did not make the traditional photo shoot at the entrance of the hospital like other royals in the past.
Vegan Color and Gender Neutral Kindergarten
Nowadays The majority of new parents find out the gender of their upcoming arrival in advance and prepare the kindergarten accordingly. Although we do not know if Meghan and Harry knew they would welcome a boy, LiveKindly reports that the royal couple used vegan color and decorated Archie's room in gender-neutral colors and styles.
Although a large percentage of parents are decorated with pinks and blues, Duke and Duchess Sussex did things in their own way and gave the nursery a modern touch.
Meghan and Harry Are a Perfect Example of Modern Parenting
We have to say that Prince Harry and Meghan are the perfect example of modern parenting that we can think of. The Sun reports that they even plan to travel the world with Archie while pursuing their royal duties rather than leaving their son at home with a nanny like most members of the royal family.
The most telling example is that Archie does not have a royal title – Meghan and Harry let him decide if he wants to live in the royal spotlight. The royal couple are a great parent and we love the modern approach to raising their son.
