But a source told Closer that the couple went out of their way to send Archie a gift for his birthday.

Queen Elizabeth II's post didn't ruffle any feathers, as she posted a happy photo of Meghan and Harry with Archie back from his public debut in 2019.

"Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today. 🎈" the caption read. It was also revealed that the matriarch planned to call the birthday boy over Zoom.

"They’re spoiling him with gifts, books, a toy car, jigsaw puzzles [and] a children’s cooking kit," a source spilled to Closer.

A few of Archie's friends are set to attend the bash as well.

"[He] gets so excited when he mixes with children his own age," gushed the source. "He’s really come out of his shell."

This year, Meghan and Harry are asking people to make a donation to a COVID-19 relief fund in honor of their little boy's day.

"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. 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," the message on their Archewell website stated. "You raise funds for those who need it most, and continue to do so organically and selflessly. We remain incredibly grateful."
