  • Baby Archie Harrison is said to have taken his first holiday to celebrate mum Meghan's 38th birthday in Ibiza.

    The Duchess of Sussex, who celebrated her 38th birthday last month, is said to have jetted off to sunny Ibiza with husband Prince Harry and baby son Archie.

    According to a number of Spanish media outlets, the family of three are said to have flown out of the UK on 6th August and headed back home on 12th August.

    While Meghan’s birthday was actually on 4th August, the trip is thought to have been taken to celebrate her summer birthday.

    It’s been reported that during the break, which would have been baby Archie’s first trip away since he was born back in May, the trio spent their time in a private secluded villa, so that they could escape prying eyes.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are thought to have travelled the circa-two hour flight via private jet with their own security team.

    The duo are also thought to have hired a further five local members of security who knew the area well while they were over in the Spanish destination.

    Duchess Meghan is said to be a huge fan of the popular Spanish holiday resort, having travelled to Ibiza in the past with friends.

    She was also spotted there back in 2016 with fashion designer buddy Misha Nonoo, who it thought to be the mutual friend that introduced the royal couple back when they first met.

    Though Prince Harry is not known to have visited Ibiza in the past, he has visited another of the Balearic Islands when he took a trip to Mallorca way back in 1986, when he was only two years old, with his late mother Princess Diana and older brother Prince William.

    While the young family’s holiday to Ibiza would have been three-month-old Archie’s first international trip, he is expected to make another big visit this autumn when he will be travelling to South Africa with his parents.

    The royal parents took to their Instagram page back in June to announce the trip, which is being taken at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth office.

    Alongside a sweet picture of the duke and duchess, the caption read: ‘The Duke and Duchess are really looking forward to meeting so many of you on the ground and continuing to raise awareness of the high impact work local communities are doing across the commonwealth and beyond. This will be their first official tour as a family!’
