Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Say Son Archie’s Favorite Song Is a Total Classic

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just confirmed that Archie is like any ordinary 2-year-old—even when it comes to nursery rhymes.

Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex traveled to New Jersey in honor of Veterans Day. The royal couple visited the Task Force Liberty at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, where they met Afghan refugees, hosted a luncheon and even surprised a group of young students during their conversational English class.

Per Marie Claire, Prince Harry and Markle led the kids in singing a rendition of “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” After the performance, they revealed that they have ample experience with the nursery rhyme because it’s one of Archie’s favorite songs.

Prince Harry also bonded with the other guests, who represented all six branches of the U.S. military. “My experience in the military made me who I am today, and I will always be grateful for the people I got to serve with—wherever in the world we were,” he said. “But in war, you also see and experience things you hope no one else has to. These stay with us, sometimes like a slideshow of images.”

It seems Archie is taking after his cousin, Prince Louis, who’s also a music lover. Last year, Kate Middleton hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace honoring the 25th anniversary of Place2Be and chatted with two school choirs. When the Duchess of Cambridge learned that a few of the children were celebrating birthdays, she proceeded to reveal that “Happy Birthday” is “one of Louis’s favorite songs,” according to People magazine.

If we had to guess, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” has been stuck in Meghan’s head for quite awhile…
