This year, there’s one item on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie’s wish list that he won’t be getting this Christmas—and understandably so: a Leica camera, which is handcrafted and costs thousands of dollars.

Meghan spoke with director and photographer Misan Harriman, who is a friend of hers and has photographed her family before, and touched on his influence on Archie during a November Q&A.

Harriman is the director of Netflix’s short film The After. Meghan participated in a discussion with him and the film’s star David Oyelowo on November 15 at a private residence in Montecito, California.

Regarding Harriman’s impact on Archie specifically, Meghan said, “The inspiration runs deep. Our 4-year-old,” she then stopped and corrected herself, “4-and-a-half-year-old son—he would say, ‘No, I’m not 4. I’m 4-and-a-half’—Misan was showing him how to do photography the last time he was with us, and I bought Archie a camera, and he said, ‘But it’s not a Leica like Misan,’ I said, ‘You are not getting a Leica! Not even for Christmas.’ So thank you for the inspiration across the board,” she told Harriman.

Meghan and Harry released their holiday card last week, choosing not to release a new photo of their children Archie and Lilibet. They instead used a public photo of them taken at the 2023 Invictus Games.

Meghan has kept a largely low profile this year. She did address renewed interest in her own past project, Suits, during a rare red carpet interview with Variety on November 16.

She said she had “no idea” what caused the show to perform so well on streaming, then offered this theory: “It was great to work on, such a great cast and crew. We had a really fun time. I was on it for seven seasons, so quite a bit. But it’s hard to find a show you can binge-watch that many episodes of these days, so that could have something to do with it. But good shows are everlasting.”
