In celebration of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor's first birthday, his mom, Meghan Markle shared a new video where she and her son read the children's book, Duck! Rabbit! After watching the video, actress Jennifer Garner reposted the clip along with a sweet message of support for Meghan, Prince Harry, and baby Archie.
"Thank you for sharing your gorgeous son with the world and allowing us to join you in celebrating his first birthday," Garner wrote.
The video, recorded by Prince Harry, was originally posted on the Save with Stories Instagram account, as part of the charity Save the Children's campaign to help kids whose lives and families have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Garner, who is actively involved in Save the Children, shared her appreciation for the couple's willingness to help the charity and for spreading the word about these children in need.
"We are humbled and grateful that you chose @savewithstories to mark this special day and in so doing - have raised the visibility of @savethechildren’s work in the US and UK and have helped feed and educate children in desperate need of both," Garner wrote.
However, not everyone has been as supportive as Garner. The actress's encouraging Instagram post comes after an onslaught of criticism by author Emily Giffin, best known for her book Something Borrowed.
After Meghan posted the video, Giffin shared a slew of complaints on her own Instagram account. She began her onslaught saying, “Happy birthday, Archie. Go away, Megan," misspelling the Duchess's first name. Giffin also called Meghan “so unmaternal” and a “phony.”
The author later apologized for her posts and has since made her Instagram account private.
Garner, however, had nothing but kind words for Meghan. She continued to share her affection for the royals to her 9 million followers.
"More than anything - watching you lovingly talk through the pictures while your clever Archie turns the pages - lifts all of us up and reminds us that what may seem like a duck just might turn out to be a rabbit," Garner wrote. "Thank you for this joyful and meaningful shift in perspective."
