“Happy Birthday Granny” – Harry and Meghan’s message to The Queen as she turns 93

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have taken to Instagram to wish The Queen a very happy birthday.

On their newly created account, Their Royal Highnesses wrote: “Happy Birthday Your Majesty, Ma’am, Granny. Wishing you the most wonderful day! Harry & Meghan.”


The Queen is being joined by members of her family at Windsor Castle for the celebration of her 93rd birthday.

The occasion of the monarch’s birthday coincides with Easter Sunday this year meaning it is a double celebration for The Queen who is Head of the Church of England.

Members of The Royal Family have joined Her Majesty in Windsor for the occasion. It is not known whether Harry & Meghan will join in the celebrations with the couple expecting their first child any day.

Meanwhile, at Buckingham Palace, the Band of the Irish Guards will perform a rendition of Happy Birthday during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex launched their Instagram account a few weeks ago under the handle @sussexroyal.

With its launch, the Duke and Duchess said in their first post, “Welcome to our official Instagram; we look forward to sharing the work that drives us, the causes we support, important announcements, and the opportunity to shine a light on key issues. We thank you for your support, and welcome you to @sussexroyal – Harry & Meghan.”

The separation of Instagram accounts for William and Harry’s families follows the announcement a couple of weeks ago that the families would be splitting households. The Cambridges will retain their Kensington Palace base while the Sussexes will move to Buckingham Palace.
