‘Everyone was in tears’ – Meghan Markle reveals Archie’s bedroom caught fire during royal tour with Prince Harry

Meghan Markle has revealed her son Archie’s bedroom caught fire while she and husband Prince Harry were on tour in South Africa.

In the first episode of her Archetypes podcast, the Duchess of Sussex was joined by her friend, tennis star Serena Williams.

At one point in their discussion, they touched on the expectation of maintaining a calm public appearance amid struggles in their personal lives.

Markle elaborated on an anecdote from 2019 when she and Harry visited Nyanga Parish in South Africa as part of their royal duties.

Shortly after landing in the country, they left four-month-old Archie with staff before heading out for an official interview.

“We break off the engagement, we get in the car and they say, ‘There’s a fire at the residence,'” she said.

“What?” replied a surprised Williams.

“[They said] ‘There was a fire in the baby room,'” Markle continued, before adding, “I can’t believe I’m even talking about this.

“We just landed an hour or two ago. We raced back and our amazing nanny Lauren, who we had all the way here from Canada, was in tears.”

Markle went on to explain that her nanny was preparing to put Archie to bed for his nap when she decided to take him out for a last-minute snack.

“By the time she went downstairs, the heater in the kid’s room caught fire,” she said. “There was no smoke detector, someone happened to smell smoke in the hallway, walked in, fire [was] extinguished. He should sleep there.

“We came back and of course as a mother… everyone is in tears, everyone is shaken. And what did we have to do? Go out and make another official engagement.”

Launched on Tuesday (August 23), the podcast aims to explore the labels and tropes that try to hold women back.
