Archie may have missed Christmas with the royal family in Sandringham, but he's apparently been having a wonderful time in Canada with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

A source revealed to Us Weekly, "You can tell Archie’s going to be a confident social butterfly... He loves being entertained and interacting with people." The "insider" also explained, "Some children get shy or nervous around new people, but not Archie. He’ll go to anyone without kicking up a fuss!"

The source also opened up about the Christmas gifts the duke and duchess bought for their son, and it's clear that they want Archie to have as much fun as possible. Per Us Weekly's source, "Archie is Meghan and Harry’s world, and they can’t help [it]... For Christmas, they bought him books, building blocks, a baby ball pit… It’s not all about extravagant gifts for them."

The report about Archie's first Christmas comes after Meghan and Harry released a brand new photo of their son in Canada. Bundled up in a warm bobble hat, and snug UGG boots, Archie was held by his dad as the pair posed in front of a stunning backdrop of a huge lake and rolling mountains.

If you want the little one in your life to look just as stylish as little Archie, his Boden jacket is sold out currently, but you can still pick up the adorable Christmas sweater he wore for his first family Christmas card:

Here's the Christmas card, per Meghan's friend Janina Gavankar, who took the shot:
