Disney Made A Sweet Winnie The Pooh Film To Welcome Meghan And Harry’s New Baby Archie
This clip is so cute!
The royal baby is finally here, and everyone is busy celebrating his arrival. Even Disney has gotten in on the excitement. The company has created an adorable “Winnie the Pooh” video to congratulate new parents Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle.
The 25-second animated clip shows Pooh on his way from his home in Hundred Acre Wood to Windsor Castle to meet baby Archie and bring him a book. When he arrives, the royal couple is seen reading the book to the baby as he lies in his crib, and Pooh sits down beside them.
Check out the short clip, posted to Disney’s U.K. Facebook page below:
“Congratulations!” reads the caption. “The beginning of a grand adventure … Congratulations from Disney to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and The Royal Family on the arrival of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!”
How cute! The watercolor sketches were created by Kim Raymond, Disney’s senior principal artist.
Of course, nearly everyone loves Winnie the Pooh, and the royal family is no different. On Markle’s former lifestyle blog, “The Tig,” she included “The Tao of Pooh” by Benjamin Hoffman, which teaches about Taoism through the lens of the iconic character, in a post about her favorite books.
Last year, Prince Harry dropped £8,000 (about $10,000) on a first-edition Winnie the Pooh book as a christening gift for his nephew, Prince Louis.
“One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother,” a family friend told The Sun at the time. “She loved all the classics, and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older.”
Now baby Archie will be able to join in on this sweet new family tradition as well. Welcome to the world, little one!
