In the video, which will help raise money for food banks and community feeding programs, the couple also gave some insight as to the backstory of their son’s adorable name, and how it ultimately also inspired the name of their charity organization Archewell.

“Before SussexRoyal came the idea of ‘arche’ — the Greek word meaning ‘source of action,’ ” the couple said last month. “We connected to this concept for the charitable organization we hoped to build one day, and it became the inspiration for our son’s name. To do something of meaning, to do something that matters. Archewell is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we each must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right.”
