The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have a big milestone to celebrate this week! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son, Archie, is turning one on May 6, and the couple plan to make sure it's a special day.
Prince Harry, Meghan and Archie are now living in Los Angeles, and have been isolating at their rented compound amid the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, they’re not able to throw Archie a big party, but they’re still planning cheerful festivities.
Meghan is a talented cook, and plans on baking her son a special healthy cake for her son’s birthday, according to Vanity Fair's royal reporter Katie Nicholl. They’ll probably spend the day outside by the pool, Nicholl also told OK. Meghan’s mum, Doria Ragland, lives less than an hour away, but since they’re all carefully following social isolation rules, likely won’t be able to all reunite just yet.
Queen Elizabeth is reportedly planning on gifting her great-grandson a rocking horse for his big day, and she’ll get to wish Archie a happy birthday via a Zoom call tomorrow.
Archie will also get to see his cousins on a Zoom, as the Sussexes have scheduled a call with Prince William and Kate Middleton so that Archie can see Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Cambridge children, who are isolating at Anmer Hall, are excited to see the littlest Sussex as they haven’t spent time him in quite a while.
Prince Harry and Meghan are also reportedly planning on releasing a new photo of Archie to the public, in honour of his first birthday, so expect an adorable picture of the littlest one tomorrow.
