Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and the Cambridges celebrate Archie’s third birthday with adorable shots that show just how much the Royal Family is looking forward to seeing him.
London – Archie is three! The little son of Prince Harry (37) and Duchess Meghan (40) celebrated his third birthday on May 6, far from the British crown and his birthplace London.
Queen Elizabeth II (96) took the opportunity to congratulate her little great-grandson on Twitter with a gorgeous photo.
There are only a few weeks left before Queen Elizabeth can finally hug little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor herself again. Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry are coming to the Queen’s jubilee confirmed in June and want to bring their children. Daughter Lilibet Diana (11 months) left the monarch due to simmering conflicts between the Sussexes and the royal family never met in person. The greater the joy.
