Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a “sweet” birthday greeting for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s firstborn son, Archie Harrison. On their official social media accounts, they posted a photo from the Sussexes’ child’s christening in 2019.

Express UK said that the future King and Queen Consort used the same image from their previous greeting when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son turned two last year. They captioned with, “Wishing Archie a very happy third birthday today,” alongside emojis of a cake and balloon.

It is reportedly believed that the young Sussex royal was last seen with his royal relatives in the United Kingdom back in November 2019. He has since relocated to the United States when his parents stepped down as senior working members of the British Royal Family in 2020.

On Twitter, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s birthday greeting post has since amassed more than 11,600 likes. It has, also, obtained hundreds of retweets and comments from netizens across the globe.

In the comment section, many royal fans and watchers shared their greetings, as well, for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first born child. However, many netizens, also, seemingly took a dig at them, even at Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Meanwhile, others praised the future British Monarch and his consort for making a birthday greeting. Some deemed them “sweet” and “gracious” for making an effort.

Apart from Prince William and Kate Middleton, other senior members of the British Royal Family, also, shared their birthday greetings for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son. On the respective official social media accounts, they each posted their wishes for the young royal, along with photos, as well.

Mail Online said that Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles followed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s move and used the same photo from their greetings last year. It features the Prince of Wales, alongside his youngest son and his grandson.

The caption appears to be “informal” in comparison to the Queen’s official greeting. It reads, “Happy Birthday Archie!” with a red balloon emoji.

Meanwhile, on Queen Elizabeth II’s official accounts, it says, “Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 3rd birthday.” The accompanying photo is different from what the page posted last year.

During Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son’s second birthday, the account used the photo, featuring the Sussex couple, with the royal-born Prince holding his infant son. 

This year, the account posted the picture, which shows the Queen, smiling toward her great-grandson, beside Prince Philip, Prince Harry, and Doria Ragland, with the Duchess of Sussex holding her child.
