A Very Happy 1st Birthday to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Can you believe it’s been one whole year since we welcomed the son of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, to the world!

To say it’s been a year of changes for Prince Harry and Meghan is a slight understatement, but while they settle into their new lives, we’re celebrating Archie’s first birthday with a few fun first facts. 

  • As the eighth great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, little Archie was introduced to Her Majesty and Prince Philip at only two days old. The Queen and Prince Philip were also the first members of the Royal Family to meet the new addition. 
  • Archie embarked on his first Royal Tour at the young age of four months old. The family tour to Southern Africa included a special meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who joked that the four month old is “going to be a ladies’ man”.
  • Another exciting milestone for Archie was his first glimpse of snow! Prince Harry revealed the news at a private Sentebale fundraiser in January, saying: “It has also been a privilege to meet so many of you, and to feel your excitement for our son Archie, who saw snow for the first time the other day and thought it was bloody brilliant!”

As always, we’d love to hear your birthday messages for Archie, so please be sure to visit us on Facebook or Twitter to share your special message.

Below are birthday messages from Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Cambridge…

And a bit of a throwback to last year, when we first heard the exciting news…
