A Royal Dilemma
Prior to the coronation, Meghan and Harry expressed their desire for their son’s birthday to be acknowledged if they were to attend the ceremony. In the end, Meghan decided to stay home with the children, preparing for a more intimate birthday celebration while Harry supported his father alone.
Archie’s Birthday Plays a Role
Royal expert Omid Scobie highlighted the significance of Archie’s fourth birthday in Meghan’s decision to remain in the US. He explained on Twitter that the couple’s limited trip to the UK would solely involve Harry attending the coronation at Westminster Abbey.
A Grand Gesture
Despite Meghan’s absence, Charles made sure to acknowledge his rarely seen grandson. Reports suggest that shortly after his coronation at Westminster Abbey and the family’s appearance on the Buckingham Palace balcony, Charles raised a toast to celebrate Archie turning four.
Harry’s Swift Return
Harry, eager to return home for Archie’s birthday, made haste to catch a plane. He wanted to ensure he arrived in time to celebrate with his son and put him to bed afterwards. Boarding a plane at 3:45 pm, Harry landed in Los Angeles around 6:55 pm local time.
A Low-Key Celebration
Archie’s birthday gathering consisted of close family members and friends. Sources revealed that Meghan baked a lemon cake with fruits from their garden as a special treat for her son.
A Touching Birthday Wish
Photographer Misan Harriman, a close friend of Harry and Meghan, shared a heartfelt birthday message for Archie on social media. Accompanying the message was a screenshot from the Netflix documentary, showing baby Archie touching a photograph of his late grandmother, Princess Diana. While some found this adorable, others speculated that it was an attempt to overshadow Charles’ coronation.
