“Inspiration runs deep,” she explained.
“Our four-and-a-half-year-old son – he would say ‘I’m not four, I’m four and a half’ – Misan was showing him how to do photography the last time he was with us.”
Meghan said she even bough Archie a camera to encourage his new interest.
But the four-year-old was unhappy that the camera he was given was not as expensive as the one he had learnt with.

“[I was like] You are not getting a Leica, not even for Christmas.
“So thank you for the inspiration across the board!”
