When it comes to the party plans, "They’re staying local in Montecito and are having a pool day and BBQ in their luscious garden," a source spilled to Closer. "They’re spoiling him with gifts, books, a toy car, jigsaw puzzles [and] a children’s cooking kit."
Meghan reportedly "left most of the birthday shopping up to Harry this year," which resulted in the purchase of "activity games for the garden" and a chocolate fountain, added the source.
While they bought a tiered birthday cake, the source revealed that the Suits stars' mom, Doria Ragland, "offered to make cupcakes."
Though the tot is only two, the source claims that he's "aware that it’s a special day" and he "has more of an understanding" of what a birthday is.
"Harry and Meghan are trying to teach him to sing to ‘Happy birthday to you...,’ and he tries to follow along," the source shared. "It’s so adorable."
A few of Archie's friends will likely attend his bash as he "gets so excited when he mixes with children his own age."

"He’s really come out of his shell," the source noted. "When he wants something, you know about it."
Needless to say, members of the royal family won't be there for the celebration, but according to the source, Prince William and Kate Middleton mailed Archie a gift from Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis "as a nice gesture for their nephew."
They also made an Instagram post in his honor, sharing a photo from his christening alongside the caption, "Wishing Archie a very happy 2nd birthday today."
Archie's great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, also shared a tribute, writing, "Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today."
