Happy birthday to Queen Elizabeth’s youngest great-grandchild!

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is celebrating his first birthday.

In celebration of his special day, we're looking at some of his most adorable moments, which has left many royal fans gushing over his cuteness.


On 6 May 2019 Harry and Meghan welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The couple only introduced their son to the rest of the world two days later on 8 May at St George’s Hall in Windsor Castle during a media photocall – a moment where the newborn won the hearts of many royal watchers.


Little Archie arrived in the world just in time for Mother’s Day.

In celebration, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared an adorable picture of his teeny-tiny feet cupped in Meghan’s hands, leaving many fans swooning over the newborn.


In celebration of his first Father’s Day, Harry shared an endearing moment with Archie cradled in his arms. The little one also reached out to grab hold of one of his dad’s fingers – a sight that’s bound to tug at your heartstrings.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex opted for a private Christening ceremony, which consisted of only 25 invited guests.

Shortly after the ceremony took place on 6 July 2019, official images from the occasion were shared with the public.

Little Archie was two months old at the time and dressed to the nines, wearing an embroidered silk and lace robe for his important day.


While his parents were on a tour of Southern Africa in September last year, Archie made his first public appearance during a visit with Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu and his daughter Thandeka – a moment that was promptly dubbed 'Archie meets the Arch'.

During their visit to the Tutus, the family were treated to tea and cupcakes decorated with meaningful messages.

The little lad seemed to have his eyes focused only on the sweet treats in front of him.

So we're sure he's been looking forward to his birthday.
