Disney Gifts Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Royal Baby Animated Clip
What do you get the baby who has everything? His own animated short, of course! Disney went all out with its gift to Prince Harry and Meghan Markleâ€™s royal baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, creating a brand new animated short starring baby Sussex and his parents.
Royal commentator Omid Scobie shared the sweet clip to Twitter on May 9, 2018. â€śTo celebrate the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, @Disney have created a special Winnie-the-Pooh animation as a gift for Harry and Meghan,â€ť he wrote. â€śThe short was hand-painted in watercolor by Disneyâ€™s senior principal artist Kim Raymond. Really special.â€ť
The 25-second clip shows everyoneâ€™s favorite teddy bear, Winnie the Pooh, traipsing his way through the Hundred Acre Wood with an extra-special presentâ€”a blue book emblazoned with an emblem of the royal crownâ€”in tow. On his journey, Pooh traverses a stream and makes his way up the path to Windsor Castle to hand-deliver the book.
His efforts pay offâ€”at the end of the clip, the bear can be seen taking a seat next to a rocking chair, where a smiling Meghan, 37, is flipping through the book. Prince Harry is there too, looking over her shoulder, while baby Archie rests in his nearby crib, which bears his name.
Disney's offering has an even more special significance to Harry, 34, who reportedly has a penchant for the honey-loving bear: He reportedly gifted his nephew, Prince Louis, with a first-edition copy of Winnie the Poohâ€”worth more than $1,000 USDâ€”at his christening in July 2018.
As a source told The Sun, â€śRobinson Crusoe was Williamâ€™s favorite book, but Harry loved all things A. A. Milne.â€ť
Itâ€™s not the only present the couple will receive in the wake of the May 6, 2018 arrival of their firstborn child; their good pal Oprah Winfrey also has something special up her sleeve. â€śI have a standard gift that I do for people that I really care about...This baby will have enough books to last a lifetime,â€ť she told Access Hollywood before the birth.
The royal duo has also received a few slightly more unconventional presents, according to the royal website, including a â€śframed image of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's names represented as molecules,â€ť and a â€śhamper of produce.â€ť
Hey, it's the thought that counts, right?
