Even though there is some drama between the royal family and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the former took time out of their day to send the couple’s son, Archie, some birthday love.
Queen Elizabeth II wrote a short but sweet message to her great-grandson via The Royal Family’s Instagram account.
"Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today. 🎈," the account captioned a photo of Archie a few days after he was born in 2019 alongside his parents.
"Happy birthday to Archie, who turns two today. 🎂," Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall wrote via the Clarence House Instagram. In the photo, Charles is looking at his new grandson, who is being held by Harry.
Lastly, Prince William and Kate Middleton shared a photo from Archie’s christening, writing, “Wishing Archie a very happy 2nd birthday today. 🎈🎂.”
Ever since Harry, 36, spoke candidly about his family on television, his relationship with his brother and father have been rocky.
After Prince Philip died on April 9, Harry made the trip overseas to attend the funeral and see his family for the first time since he left the royal family.
Even though he was seen chatting with his older brother after the service, it seems like the two are still in the process of working things out.
“Harry did speak to William while he was in the U.K., so in that respect, they made some progress,” an insider told Us Weekly. “But they definitely haven’t reached the stage where all is forgiven nor have they buried the hatchet.”
Meanwhile, Charles is “still fuming about Harry throwing shade at him and the royal family in the big interview and won’t let it drop,” a source said. “But to be honest, Harry didn’t go running back to Charles begging for forgiveness either. He still hasn’t forgiven his father for his lack of effort and support after he and Meghan decided to move. The reason Harry went back to the U.K. was to see the queen and to pay his respects to Prince Philip. That’s about as far as it goes.”
