  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared an unseen photo of baby Archie today in honour of his grandfather Prince Charles’ 71st birthday.

    On Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s Sussex Royal Instagram account, the couple shared a photo from little Archie’s christening back in July.

    In the snap, the royal bubba, who is now six-months old, can be seen in the arms of his father Prince Harry, while his grandpa Prince Charles proudly looks on.

    Beside the sweet family photo, a special birthday message says, ‘Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Pa, Grandpa! 🎂.’

    In the comment section, handfuls of royal fans swooned over the cute image and sent the future King their kind words.

    What a beautiful photo 💕 happy birthday Prince Charles 🎉,’ one wrote.

    Beautiful picture for Grandpa HRH Prince Charles on his birthday 🎂,’ added another.

    Wow congratulations Charles 🥂🍾🎂,’ chipped in a third.

    Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted a picture Prince Charles cooing over his second youngest grandson, one-year-old Prince Louis, who can be seen in the arms of Duchess Catherine.

    This comes after Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan confirmed that they will be spending Archie’s first Christmas with Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.

    It’s a break from royal tradition, as new dad Prince Harry has spent every Christmas of his life with his family at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, except for in 2012 when he was serving in Afghanistan.

    Announcing the news, a spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess said, “The Duke and Duchess are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month.

    “Having spend the last two Christmases at Sandringham, their Royal Highnesses will spend the holidays this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland.”

    Adding that the couple’s choice to spend Christmas away from Sandringham has been okayed by Prince Harry’s grandmother, the statement continued, “This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the royal family, and has the support of Her Majesty the Queen.”
