“I’ve had a front row seat in your life for the past few years. I’ve watched you endure things that would have broken a lot of people,” the actor and filmmaker, 52, said. “I’m so incredibly proud to see how happy you, your husband, and your kids are now. It fills me with joy to say Happy Birthday Princess Meghan.”

The heartfelt caption accompanied a photo of Meghan from her 2019 tour of South Africa, where she can be seen kneeling and kissing the hand of a young girl.

Prior to settling down in their home in Santa Barbara, Meghan and Prince Harry stayed at Perry’s Los Angeles estate with son Archie Harrison (their daughter, Lilibet Diana, was born in June 2021) as they transitioned out of their senior royal roles.

“With COVID and as they were stepping back from their royal duties, he provided them a safe haven,” the source added.

Perry was also a guest on Prince Harry and Meghan’s first Spotify podcast in Dec. 2020, joining a starry lineup that also included Elton John and James Corden in reflecting on the year.
