Kate and William wish baby Archie 'very happy' first birthday, share never-before-seen family photo
Harry and Meghan are expected to call the Queen to mark Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's special day
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, have wished Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie for his 1st birthday, on May 6.
Archie, who is seventh in line to the throne will reportedly mark his 1st birthday with virtual wishes via zoom calls to his aunt and uncle. In a message shared on their Twitter account, Prince William and Kate wished Archie a "very happy first birthday".
The message was shared along with a picture of the family posing at Archie's christening. It is also believed that Harry and Meghan will call Harry's grandmother, the Queen, for Archie's special day. Harry's father Prince Charles' official Twitter account also shared a post wishing Archie for his birthday.
Clarence House had shared a photograph of Prince Charles, Prince Harry, and baby Archie that was taken at his christening in July last year. The official Twitter handle of the Queen also shared a photograph and birthday wishes for Archie. It seems like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have a quiet day post moving to the US.
The pair are currently staying in Los Angeles, California and like everyone else, are on a 'stay at home' order given the coronavirus pandemic. The couple is hoping to raise Archie in the United States after they quit the royal family on March 31.
Archie has had a very eventful year from moving from the UK to Canada and then to the US. He was born at London's Portland Hospital at 5.26 am on May 6, 2019. He was introduced to the world a few days after his birth.
Fans are hoping that the couple will share a picture of their son who is very rarely seen in the public eye. Many took to commenting on social media, wishing Archie for his birthday but asking where a new picture of the young royal was.
One such user commented, "Happy birthday, Archie. Where's our photo?" while a second user shared, "Happy Birthday Archie! I hope you have a lovely first Birthday". A third user commented saying, "Happy birthday dear sweet Archie.. no photo though! Of course, releasing his photo here will not bring dollars to his mom’s pocket!"
We had previously reported that Prince Harry shared with his friends that he misses the army and "cannot believe" how much his life has turned upside down ever since stepping down as a senior member of the royal family.
Harry was stripped of his military titles when he and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior members of the royal family on March 31. As a result, he had to give up his roles as Captain-General of the Royal Marines and Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington. An insider shared, "Harry has told friends he is really missing the Army as well his military appointments," the Daily Telegraph reports. "He misses the camaraderie of being in the forces. He has been telling friends he still can't believe this has happened."
"He can't believe his life has been turned upside down. He was in a happy place when he was serving in the Army, then he met Meghan and since then life has been great. But I don't think he foresaw things turning out quite as they did," the source revealed.
However, Harry in no way blames Meghan for wanting to go back to her home country, the USA.
