Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a new rare photo of their son Archie in honor of his second birthday on their Archewell Studios website. 


Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor celebrated his second birthday on May 6, 2021. His parents, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, celebrated their son in a very touching way. 

Besides getting spoiled with lovely gifts such as a toy car, books, a delicious birthday cake, and a children's cooking kit, Archie's parents charitably honored his second birthday on their website.

The couple shared a beautiful filtered photo of Archie from behind as he reached up and looked at a large bouquet of foil balloons. Harry and Markle asked their supporters to celebrate him by donating to help vaccinated people.

The Sussexes asked for people to donate to help provide financial relief for individuals to get COVID-19 vaccinations. They also acknowledged people who had previously honored Archie by donating or doing charity work as they wrote:

 "Many of you donate to charities on his behalf, and mark the occasion by giving back or doing an act of service."


On their website, they explained that $5 could vaccinate one person and because they teamed up with organizations that would match donations, one person's donation of $5 could get four people vaccinated. 

This will be Archie's last birthday as an only child, so his parents pulled out all the stops to make it a special day. They announced they were expecting Archie's little sister in February and they are expected to welcome her soon.

The family celebrated with a day by the pool, a BBQ, and playing in the family's Montecito home garden. According to a Closer Weekly source, Harry was in charge of the shopping and made sure there was a chocolate fountain. 

According to various sources, Archie had hit some big milestones. He is very smart as he has a large vocabulary, he has even spoken on the Archewell podcast, and he has made a few new friends in California as he loves to socialize.
