How time flies! Archie, son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, has hit a big milestone for such a little guy. The royal baby is now a toddler and members of the royal family are celebrating his birthday with charming messages.
On the Occasion of Archie’s Birthday, Prince William and Kate Middleton Sent Wished the Little Man Well.
“Wishing Archie a very happy 2nd birthday today,” the caption for the Instagram post reads alongside a photo of select royal family members gathered for baby Archie in the UK.
Many fans of Kate and William noted their approval with many leaving comments on the image like “Class” or “Classy move,” due to the ongoing rumors of a rift between Princes William and Harry.
Kate and William were not the only members of the royal family who shared a post in honor of Archie’s birthday. Queen Elizabeth II‘s media team also shared an image of infant Archie being held by Prince Harry and Meghan.
“Wishing Archie-Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today,” the caption for the image reads.
Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall also shared an image and celebratory remarks. “Happy birthday to Archie, who turns two today,” a caption shared on their official Instagram account reads.
The image shows Charles, the future king, looking at baby Archie who is held in Harry’s arms. The black and white photo captures generations of royals all in the same room together.
Archie is set to become a big brother this summer after his parents announced that they are expecting their second child, a baby girl.
“To have a boy then a girl — what more can you ask for?” Harry said during the couple’s sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
The growing family of three has been settling into life in Montecito, California, since their move last summer.
“They are both extremely attentive parents. Harry wants to give Archie the childhood he always wanted,” an insider explained to People in October. “They spend a ton of time outside, and both Harry and Meghan love to play—all the private space is a dream for them.”
Archie is really happy, and he has space to run free,” the source claimed. “The house came with a play structure that he’ll be climbing in no time.”
“To have outdoor space where I can go for walks with Archie and we go for walks as a family and with the dogs. You know, we go on hikes or go down to the beach, which is so close,” Harry told Oprah in March.
“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 also explained to Oprah, as he shared his son’s growing California-centric vocabulary.
Meghan recently shared that her motherhood journey encouraged her to write a children’s book, “The Bench.”
“The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” Meghan wrote in the press release by publisher Random House Children’s Books. “That poem became this story.”
We are so thrilled for Archie and wish him the happiest of birthdays!
