In honor of his 36th birthday, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry sent the Duke of Sussex a sweet message on social media. “Wishing a very happy birthday to Prince Harry today!” they captioned a throwback photo from February 2017. The photograph was taken during a promotion for their Heads Together initiative in London. In the snap, we see Harry running ahead of his older brother and sister-in-law while participating in a relay race. And these three are all smiles.
While Harry will not be sharing his special day with his royal relatives across the pond, we imagine he will be in contact with them at some point during the day via a phone call or video chat. Most likely, there will be a Zoom call, considering that’s how the family has been staying connected, according to Prince William.
Instead, a source told People that the duke will be enjoying “some birthday celebrations quietly with the family” at his new home Santa Barbara. And knowing his wife, Meghan Markle, we’re sure she has something special planned (with a limited guest list, of course).
This will be the first birthday that Harry will be celebrating in his new California home. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex purchased the residence, which is located in the wealthy neighborhood of Montecito, for a cool $14.65 million. Last month, Markle also celebrated a birthday and received a few posts from her royal in-laws. Yup, that includes Queen Elizabeth, who shared a photo of herself with the Duchess of Sussex on the official Royal Family Instagram account. “Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!” she captioned the pic.
Even if they can’t all be together, it’s nice to see everyone showing their love for Harry’s special day.
