"The highlight for me is sticking him on the back of the bicycle in his little baby seat and taking him on bike rides is something which I never was able to do when I was young. I can see him on the back, and he's got his arms out, chatting: 'Palm tree?' House?' " Harry added, sharing Archie's new vocabulary.

In addition, Meghan shared her son's latest favorite word. "He's on a roll. In the past few weeks it's been 'hydrate,' " the Duchess of Sussex said.

"Whenever anyone leaves the house, he's like, 'Drive safe!' " Harry shared as Meghan said, "He's not even 2 yet!"

Even at his young age, Archie knows how to steal the show.

To celebrate his first birthday last May, Archie appeared in a video with his mom reading the book Duck! Rabbit! He proved to be a pro at turning pages and picking out the next book to read.

Archie even joined his parents on one of their latest projects, a podcast for Spotify. At the end of Archewell Audio's holiday special, Archie took a turn at the microphone.

"You can speak into it," Harry told Archie.

"Archie, is it fun?" Meghan said, to which Archie responds, "Fun?" Then Meghan repeats, "Fun!"

Meghan and Harry then said, "New..."

And Archie completed the message: "New Year" — and his parents cheered as Archie giggled.

Archie is loving his new home in California, where Meghan and Harry relocated in March 2020.

"Archie is really happy, and he has space to run free. The house came with a play structure that he'll be climbing in no time," a source close to the couple previously told PEOPLE. "They're excited to be there and to become part of the community. It's a really happy time for them as a family."
