Royal Family Celebrates Archie Mountbatten-Windsor's 2nd Birthday with Heartwarming Messages

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie is turning two years old today, and members of the Royal family, including the Cambridges, sent their good wishes to the toddler.

Members of the Royal family took to Instagram to wish baby Archie a happy birthday and shared a photo of him with his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today," the statement read. The post was accompanied by a picture of the Sussexes flashing smiles with the Duke holding their newborn at the time.

Kate Middleton and Prince William also paid tribute to the couple’s only child, soon-to-be big brother. The royal couple shared a family photo featuring themselves, Markle and Prince Harry, with the actress cradling her son, along with other relatives.

Prince Harry, 36, and Markle, 39, are to celebrate their son’s special day. Archie has spent much of his life living with his parents in North America.

Following his birth in 2019, his name became the top baby name for boys that year. Markle and Prince Harry declined to give him a title, like "Prince Archie."

The little one differs from all of his cousins as they are known as princes and princesses. However, he is not the first royal child to not have a title.

Following his birthday celebration, he is also expected to reconnect with his great-grandmother, the Queen. Prince Harry has previously shared how the royal matriarch enjoys speaking with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren over Zoom.

Archie's cousins, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, and Prince Louis, may have royal titles, but their parents raise them to have a normal childhood as they are hands-on when it comes to them.
