Markle’s tribute to Prince Harry

The duchess’ post for Prince Harry’s birthday included a gushing message and nine photos, with one unseen image from baby Archie’s christening day. In the new baby pic, Harry crouches down to see the baby being held by mom — a very sweet moment, for sure.

Markle wrote: “Your service to the causes you care so deeply for inspires me every day. You are the best husband and most amazing dad to our son. We love you. Happiest birthday!”

Prince William and Kate Middleton share a birthday greeting

Markle wasn’t the only one with a birthday message, however, as Prince William and Kate Middleton took to their Instagram account to share a wish for Harry’s special day.

This message accompanied a photo of the two brothers together: “Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duke of Sussex today! [birthday cake emoji].”

Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall noted in a post: “Wishing a very Happy Birthday to The Duke of Sussex, who turns 35 today!”

Fans were thrilled by Markle’s post

Many royal fans adored Markle’s message to her husband, with one Twitter user sharing: “They are such a beautiful loving family! Archie is so adorable and cute. Happy Birthday Prince Harry! Beautiful Duchess Meghan’s sweet message is so true of you. Wishing you continued success and happiness but you already have the joys of your heart: D. Meghan and Archie.”

Fans left adoring comments on the Instagram post, including: “That picture of Harry kneeling in front of Meghan, and Archie! Beautiful beyond words” and “Happy Birthday Prince Harry. What a wonderful man, husband, father you have become. Your mother is smiling down, so pleased with all you’ve accomplished. We love you, and wish you many more.”

Archie looks like Prince Harry

With the collection of images Markle posted, fans could easily see how Archie resembles his dad as a baby.

Comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres recently spoke about visiting Prince Harry and Markle over the summer — and she dished about how baby Archie looks like Harry!

DeGeneres noted: “Here’s a sentence I thought I would never say, but I spent the afternoon with Prince Harry and Meghan,” adding, “I just want to say it was an honor for them to meet me.”

She continued: “I can’t tell you how sweet they are, but the most important thing is I got to hold little Archie, the baby. I fed Archie, I held Archie… He weighs 15 pounds, which the exchange rate, I believe is $17 here.”

The host shared this little tidbit as well: “He looks like Harry… He looks just like Harry and he had more hair than I did at the time.”
