Prince Harry and wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, delighted fans by releasing a new photo of their son on his second birthday.
In an accompanying statement, Harry, 36, and the former Meghan Markle, 39, also encouraged fans to celebrate the occasion by donating to their Global Citizen campaign to promote COVID-19 vaccine equity, CNN reported.
“While we may feel that normalcy is around the corner, we remind ourselves that in much of the world, and especially in developing countries, vaccine distribution has effectively yet to start,” said the couple, who are expecting their second child, a baby girl, this year. “We will not be able to truly recover until everyone, everywhere, has equal access to the vaccine. And with that intention, we are inviting you to contribute whatever you can — if you have the means to do so — to bring vaccines to families in the world’s most vulnerable places.”
Earlier Thursday, members of the British royal family also took to social media to share well-wishes for Archie.
“Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today,” read a tweet from Queen Elizabeth II’s official account. The post also included a photo of Harry and Meghan holding Archie when he was a newborn.
