Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just shared an adorable new photo of son Archie to celebrate his birthday!
In the sepia-toned snap, Archie is photographed from behind as he holds a large bouquet of balloons. He stand before a sprawling field filled with foliage and palm trees in the background.
Little Archie is already sporting an impressive mop of hair, looking more like his dad every day!
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced on their charity foundation website Archewell, that they are launching a Covid-19 vaccine fundraiser in honor of Archie’s special day.
“We cannot think of a more resonant way to honor our son’s birthday,” the royal couple said in a statement. “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,” they continued.
“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.”
For the next 10 days, donations made to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, will be matched by three different organizations of up to $3 million. A $5 donation, which can purchase one vaccine will end up being a $20 donation to the vaccine equity organization.
His birthday comes just two days after The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that Meghan wrote a children’s book titled “The Bench” about “the special bond between a father and son – as seen through a mother’s eyes. Inspired by her own husband and son,” according to a press release on Archewell.
The book evolved from an intimate gift that she gave Prince Harry back in 2019, “The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father’s Day, the month after Archie was born,” Meghan said in the statement.
“That poem became this story. Christian layered in beautiful and ethereal watercolor illustrations that capture the warmth, joy, and comfort of the relationship between fathers and sons from all walks of life; this representation was particularly important to me, and Christian and I worked closely to depict this special bond through an inclusive lens.”
