New photo of Archie accompanies Meghan’s birthday wishes to Harry

” The best husband and most amazing dad to our son”. This personal message is just part of the birthday message to the Duke of Sussex shared by his wife as Prince Harry turns 35. The special words are part of a celebration posted on the Sussex Royal Instagram page which also includes a new photo of Archie.

Prince Harry is shown smiling at his son who is nestling on the lap of the Duchess of Sussex in a previously unseen snap from Archie’s christening in July. This is the Duke of Sussex’s first birthday since becoming a father in May this year.

The post for the big day begins with a message marking the day which reads ”Wishing a very happy birthday to His Royal Highness Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex!”. It’s followed by a personal note from the Duchess of Sussex which adds ” “Your service to the causes you care so deeply for inspires me every day. You are the best husband and most amazing dad to our son. We love you ❤️Happiest birthday!”

The first royal celebrations for Harry’s 35th birthday came from his brother with Kensington Palace tweeting early on Sunday. They shared a photo of the two brothers smiling at Harry and Meghan’s wedding with the message ” Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duke of Sussex today!”

The official social media accounts of the Royal Family soon followed suit with a photo of the Duke of Sussex with the Queen and more happy birthday wishes.

The Prince of Wales’ official Twitter and Instagram marked the 35th birthday with some photos of Harry with Charles and William and a message saying ” Wishing a very Happy Birthday to The Duke of Sussex, who turns 35 today! ”.

Henry Charles Albert David was born on September 15th 1984 at St. Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, the second child of Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
