Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Just Released a New Photo of Archie on His 2nd Birthday

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just made all our birthday wishes come true by sharing a never-before-seen photo of their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated Archie’s second birthday on the official Archewell website. The royal couple released a brand-new photo of their son, who is growing up so fast.

The pic shows Archie standing in the yard of Prince Harry and Markle’s new home in Montecito, California. The toddler is facing away from the camera and holding a balloon. Since the photo is heavily filtered, it’s hard to tell if Archie is sporting a full head of red hair (though it’s highly likely).

The caption read, “Join us in advocating for vaccine equity on Archie’s birthday.” Prince Harry and Markle are referring to their statement from earlier today, which asked followers to honor Archie by making a donation to help the world achieve COVID vaccine equity.

It read, “We have been deeply touched over the past two years to feel the warmth and support for our family in honor of Archie’s birthday. Many of you donate to charities on his behalf, and mark the occasion by giving back or doing an act of service—all through the goodness of your hearts. You raise funds for those who need it most and continue to do so organically and selflessly. We remain incredibly grateful.”

Keep the Archie pics coming, Harry and Meghan.
