The 2-year-old royal has been living in California since Fall of 2019 when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex relocated to the United States after stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

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.”

The first-time author, who is pregnant with the couple’s second child also revealed her wishes for the new title, “My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the makeup, as much as it does with mine.”
