The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently the most popular members of the royal family (sorry, Wills and Kate), but the only one that could possibly outshine Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is their son, Prince Archie. His royal birth was one of the most anticipated events of 2019, and we’re calling it now: a lot of you are going to be this trio for Halloween in 2019!
If you’re a fan of the hottest royal fam of the moment, then it’s your lucky day. We’ve got step-by-step instructions for how to DIY your own Meghan Markle, Prince Harry & Baby Archie Halloween costume:
The Birth Announcement
After their epic royal wedding, Harry and Meghan soon announced that they were expecting. The world was on bump watch for nine long months, and then Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, aka Prince Archie, was born on May 6, 2019!
The couple kept details of the birth quiet, but when they finally stepped out with the swaddled newborn at Windsor Castle on May 8, let’s just say that it was worth the wait. Meghan was beaming in a sleeveless trench dress, Harry in a smart grey suit, and the real star of the show, the as-of-yet-unnamed Archie, was resting peacefully in a white receiving blanket and matching hat. So cute!
This moment will definitely be one of the more popular ways to dress as Harry, Meghan and Archie for Halloween. Here’s how to do it:
