Happy birthday grandpa! Prince Charles celebrated his 71st birthday on Thursday and in honor of the special occasion Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared a sweet photo of the future king and his grandson, Archie.
“Happy Birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Dad, Grandpa!”, The Royal Sussex report wrote the black-and-white photo of the baptismal service of Archie in July.
The never before seen photo shows Prince Charles lovingly looking at his grandson, while the Duke of Sussex cradles his son.
Charles attended Archie’s private baptism with his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. Prince William and Kate Middleton were also present at the event.
Charles doesn’t see baby Archie for a while, because Harry, Meghan and their 6 month old are on their way to Thanksgiving with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland. A spokesperson for the palace already told ET that after the last two years the young family will not spend Christmas in Sandringham with the royal family.
Christmas will be spent with Doria, although it is unknown whether she will travel back to England for the festivities or whether the Sussexes will stay in America for Christmas.
“They can choose to take a magazine from William and Kate’s book and spend a year in the UK with Harry’s family and the next year in the US with Doria,” Royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET earlier . “I think there is every chance that they will spend Christmas in America.”
