Claire Conza also told Life & Style that she planned to send a gift to Archie, “so he can really see what it’s all about,” She plans to send some hats and an I Got Your Backpack pack that included some images of the packs donated on his behalf for Archie's 2nd birthday.

Claire also said there would be a card saying, “look what we did for your birthday,” as a sweet gesture to remind the royals of the impact they’re having on those in need.
