Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to publish birthday photo of Archie Harrison

Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, are living in Los Angeles amid the coronavirus pandemic. The couple’s exit from the monarchy became official on March 31 and they are expected to remain in LA for quite some time.

As part of their exit deal, Harry and Meghan agreed to stop using their royal titles, which is why they recently shut down their Sussex Royal account on social media. Before they stopped using the account, they managed to gain over 11 million followers, an impressive feat considering it was launched in 2019.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will likely replace their old account with their new brand, Archewell, but when that happens is anyone’s guess. The two are helping people hit hard by the current crisis and have put their other projects on hold.

Although they do not have a platform of their own at the moment, sources claim that they are planning on releasing a photo of Archie to mark his upcoming birthday. But it remains a big mystery on how they plan on publishing the photo.

One royal expert believes Archie Harrison’s birthday with pass without a photo

Despite the promise of a photo, there are some royal experts who believe Harry and Meghan will remain silent on Archie’s birthday. In a recent interview, Omid Scobie shared that he believes Archie’s birthday will “go by quietly.”

According to Express, Scobie explained how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been wanting to spend time out of the spotlight and will not attract more attention than necessary to Archie’s birthday.

“Hearing you say ‘Archie’s birthday going by quietly’ I think is exactly what the couple have craved for some time and something tells me that that’s exactly what will happen,” he shared.

Harry and Meghan have not commented on the reports surrounding Archie’s birthday. But that has not stopped fans from speculating about how they might share a photo.

How will the Sussexes share Archie Harrison’s photo?

Sussex Royal may be off the table but there are other ways in which Harry and Meghan can share a photo of Archie. For starters, it is possible that they will use Archie’s upcoming birthday to launch their new Instagram account.

Royal watchers have been waiting for a new photo of Archie, and there is little doubt that the post would generate a lot of buzz on social media. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could use that popularity boost to re-build their followers.

That said, the couple could also use other members of the royal family to publish the photos. Queen Elizabeth would obviously be at the top of their list. Not only would this give fans what they want, but it would also be a huge sign of solidarity for the monarchy.

The good news is that Harry and Meghan have plenty of time to figure things out. Archie will turn one on May 6, and apart from sharing the photo, sources claim that the couple has big plans for his first birthday.

What are Meghan Markle and Prince Harry doing for Archie Harrison’s birthday?

When it comes to Archie’s birthday, sources claim that the couple had big plans prior to the coronavirus pandemic. But considering how everything is under lockdown, the Sussexes are planning on a much smaller party.

Sources say that Harry and Meghan wanted to take Archie to see Queen Elizabeth for his first birthday. Instead, they will reportedly video call Her Majesty, who is staying at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also going to avoid inviting anyone over for the party in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.
