The Windsors all wished Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a happy second birthday

I would assume there was some kind of meeting between the senior aides of Clarence House, Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace about what to do regarding Archie Mounbatten-Windsor’s second birthday, which is today. Would the palaces mark the child’s birthday, or would their unhinged grudge against Harry and Meghan extend to a child? In the end, all three palaces posted old photos to mark Archie’s birthday. Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace seemed to post their messages around the same time, and then one hour later, Clarence House posted something.

The photos chosen were hella interesting. Archie has not been on British soil since November/December 2019. Archie did not travel with his parents when they dropped the Sussexit announcement in January 2020, nor did Archie come to the UK for the You Coulda Had a Bad Bitch farewell tour in March 2020. So no one in the royal family has actually seen Archie in person for some-odd 18 months, probably longer. I would imagine that the Queen has seen Archie via Zoom! But I also doubt that Meghan and Harry are sending photos of Archie to Baldingham, Keen Guevara and Chaz.

So, Kensington Palace chose to post the formal portrait from Archie’s christening. Charles also chose a photo from the christening – one of himself, Harry and Archie and no Meghan. Buckingham Palace chose a pic from the “baby’s first photocall” just after Meghan gave birth. Sidenote: the Keen Cambridge stans are now really mad at Charles because he didn’t do dedicated birthday posts for Prince Louis or Princess Charlotte. To be fair to Chaz… he’s actually seen his Cambridge grandkids somewhat recently and I bet he actually got Charlotte and Louis something for their birthdays. Doubt he sent anything to America for Archie.

    Happy birthday dear Archie!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARCHIE!!!!!!!! 🎂🎂🎂🎂

  3. Noki says:

    And they all got heaps of praise for being ‘the bigger’ person by posting the wishes. Which is what upsets me about this whole Cambridges/Royal Family vs Sussexes. The general public dont know how slimy,racist and cunning they are,what absolute BS they did to Meghan and how they are in cahoots with the BM. They see the Sussexes on Oprah and celebrities defending them and think they are just attention seekers. And in all fairness I wouldnt know alot of these stories if it wasnt for sites like CB,so they will continue to be the villains in a lot of peoples eyes.

    • Merricat says:

      After the Sussexes wished the Cambridges a happy 10th wedding anniversary.

      • equality says:

        Their official spokespeople verified that they had when asked. “Sources” are more the speed of the BM when talking about family members still in the UK. The birthday photos of the Cambridge children were those taken and approved by Kate, why should it be different for Harry’s children?

  4. Becks1 says:

    I think the crisis managers have started and told them they absolutely had to acknowledge Archie’s bday on social media.

    I’m not bothered by the old pictures, yes they haven’t seen Archie in well over a year but I also think that these are the pictures authorized by Harry and Meghan to share. Even if someone on the Queen’s staff took a cute picture of the Queen zooming with Archie, H&M might not have wanted that picture shared. (but how cute would that have been???)

    • Crows says:

      Yes! Agreed. They’ve been told to adult.. Not their normal style.

      • C-Shell says:

        @DrearyCalifornia … I guess your screen name says it all, really. I’m sorry you’re so bitter on a sweet two-year-old’s birthday.

    • Seraphina says:

      Agreed. And Happy Birthday to Archie.

    • Duch says:

      The crisis managers could have chosen a better pic of Charles (if one exists). As it is he looks aloof – hands behind his back, leaning back a little and no broad smile on his face like TQ and PP in their pic with Archie. Seems pretty underwhelming.

      • Becks1 says:

        Sussex Royal released that picture back in 2019 for Charles’s birthday (I think it was for his bday), so it’s already been seen – I doubt Charles has any other pictures with Archie, but even if he did, like I said, I think this is one that is authorized by H&M to share.

      • pottymouth pup says:

        the crisis managers would have gotten more mileage out of a video of the Cambridge kids wishing Cousin Archie a happy birthday

      • swirlmamad says:

        And that, @Becks1, is probably one of the saddest parts — that that is the best picture Charles has with his grandson. If you look at his body language it may as well be a staffer’s child rather than his own son’s. A complete shame.

      • Carolind says:

        Happy Birthday Archie. The Queen and Duke looked genuinely delighted in that photo. As for Charles he was no doubt also delighted with Archie but some people beam, some don’t!

      • Sid says:

        Yes swirlmamad. Compare Charles in that photo, to QEII and Philip in the photo of them meeting Archie, where Philip looked delighted and QEII looked like she was ready to swoop in and take Archie for a cuddle, great-granny style. More and more, post-Oprah a lot of things are making sense.

      • Christine says:

        The look on Harry’s face in the pic with his Grandparents is pure awe, and I love how Doria is always so zen, no matter the setting or the people around her. She calms ME down.

    • MJM says:

      I said the same thing on Twitter. Described the KR post as perfunctory – crisis managers told them it would be a bad look to ignore which is what they wanted to do.

    • I find their birthday wishes insincere and pathetic. I imagine they’ll be using the same pics above on his 18th birthday unless this family of jackasses clean up their act. If they really want to do something nice, the could ALL stop dragging Archie’s parents into their shit show.

      None of these posts are about Archie. They’re about continuing to play both sides of the game: ‘PR R US’

    • C-Shell says:

      Is this the first time the Keens have used Archie’s name in public? (I’m too lazy to research the KP Twitter acct for the first birthday). It’s always rankled that they seemed never to acknowledge his existence; barely, if at all, recognizing Meghan when in their presence. I think the Fab 4 event stunned them with her brilliance, causing them to go into honey badger mode.

      Ah, well. Water over the bridge, as one of my old bosses used to say.

  5. Cali says:

    I wish we had more pics of him😫 Happy Birthday 🎉🎁🎂 , Archie

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      I’m glad we don’t. It just brings out those racist RRs attacking a 2 year old, private citizen.

    • Lara says:

      This is weird. Why do you wish you had pics of someone else’s child?

      • Seraphina says:

        I do not think it’s fair to say it’s “weird” to want to see a picture of Archie. We have seen these children (royal children) from almost day one and I believe, due to our support of his parents, we too share the joy of watching Archie grow. Plus, in days of a pandemic when we need a smile – some of us take great joy in seeing children even if they are not our own.

      • Sandra says:

        I don’t think that’s weird. Curiosity.

      • Betsy says:

        That’s not fair. People are always clamoring for pictures of royal kids (and nieces and nephews and sometimes regular colleagues) but you make her sound like a Duggar.

      • Emily_C says:

        Heck, I don’t even want to see pictures of small children in my own family. Show me your cats, but I feel nothing about pictures of babies. I realize in this that I am the weird one though.

      • Lara says:

        “People are always clamoring for pictures of royal kids”

        I also think those people are extremely weird. NO ONE owes you pictures of their children. It is weird.

      • Betsy says:

        The entire site you’re on is based on pictures and stories of people and kids.

      • Lemons says:

        Lara, he’s a cute kid. I’m not sure what you’re insinuating, but it’s okay to want to see photos of babies being adorable, royal or not. Chill.

      • Cali says:

        @Lara I don’t think it’s “weird” to want to see the offspring of the celebrities you follow, I don’t think I’m “owed” anything so stop projecting your own weirdness into it🙄

      • Lola says:

        I sure hope nobody asks me why I want to see pics of someone else’s dog (with insinuation that I am a creep) when I say I want to see more pics of Major and Champ Biden.

    • Soupie says:

      Agreed Cali. It’s not weird. We’ll see a pic at some point and it will be nice to see him thriving which I’m sure he is. Happy Birthday Archie Harrison!

    • Seraphina says:

      Cali, I think they kind of did release pic of Archie – his back actually letting go of balloons on the Archewell site.

  6. Emily_C says:

    That Charles is the one who posted one without Meghan does not surprise me.

    • Bean says:

      Yes, but the official RF tweet was pretty petty. They chose the photo immediately after Meghan had given birth and Archie’s face isn’t even visible in the pic. Who wishes someone a happy birthday and doesn’t actually show a picture of them?

  7. Midnight@theOasis says:

    Happy 2nd Birthday Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor🎉🎊🎂

  8. Nev says:

    Happy Birthday Master Archie!!!!

    • Madelaine says:

      Archie is a blood prince, whether acknowledged or not. Happy birthday to little Prince Archie.

      • Carolind says:

        All this about the titles. Archie is not a blood prince. He is a great-grandchild of Elizabeth 2 and not entitled to the title. If you ask me George, Charlotte and Louis should not be prince/princess either.

        Nobody ever mentions though that Edward’s children, grandchildren of the monarch, are not princess and prince.

        The York girls got their Princess titles 30 years ago when things were a lot different but frankly they should be taken away and they should have the titles of the children of an ordinary duke which is the title Archie should have. Maybe he does, as Harry will have a secondary title though.

        In this day and age – and this is bad enough – only children due to inherit the throne should be prince or princess in the future.

      • Katherine says:

        @carolind Edward’s children ARE HRH and Prince and Princess under the same letters patent that give their cousins those titles (excepting Peter and Zara as they are in female line). Edward and Sophie just choose to go with lesser styles. But legally they have those titles. There’s a fairly long print interview with Sophie from shortly before the pandemic where she speaks to this exactly and says while they technically have HRH and prince/Princess and can decide to use them in adulthood, they’re being raised with the goal of independent careers. But technically they aren’t any different than William, Harry, Beatrice, and Eugenie title-wise.

      • Madelaine says:

        @Katherine: Which makes the discrimination against Archie even more blatant and revolting, not to say racially motivated.

  9. Cessily says:

    I am glad to see that they did not ignore Little Archies birthday. I think the new PR people are hard at work so I’m sure this has a lot to do with that.

  10. DuchessL says:

    I’m not offended by the posts i’m glad about it. Someone somewhere in one of the palaces read the room right this time. I hope that person will tell them how the world is in total disagreement with all the comments that can be read on DM about whatever post they do on the sussexes and that the bots commenting are really to lead the firm in thinking they’re doing great and have the approval of the public when actually they’re on the verge of collapse and everybody is sideeying them. Happy birthday Archie!! The book and the birthday 2 days in a row, they do their planning well those sussexes!

  11. JT says:

    Charles didn’t post anything for Charlotte and Louis? That’s odd. I wonder what that was about. Surely he posted something for George though?

    • Jegede says:

      He re-posted about George & Charlotte on CH Insta stories.

      It’s very possible William and Kate want to be the ones posting new pics of of their kids.

      And Chuck respects that.

    • equality says:

      He reposted what KP put out. Of course, with Louis, he promptly buried the post under a series of tweets about Dance Day so maybe some missed it.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Willie seems to have a problem with anyone in his family being seen to have anything to do with his kids, unless he benefits from it, pr wise. when George was born and everyone was excited to see fun uncle harry, Willie blocked harry from being photographed interacting with George, just cos he didn’t want harry to get good press.

      But he will occasionally allow his kids to be photographed with other royals like Zara, or Charles if it benefits his “everyone in this family loves me and hates harry” campaign.

  12. mariahlee says:

    Lol I didn’t realize CH didn’t do a post for the Cambridge kids. They’re def overcompensating. But they can’t use these pics forever.

  13. DMG says:

    Who are the two random women in the group shot?

  14. Nomegusta says:

    If they didnt close the comments, they can all go to hell

    • Royalwatcher says:

      They didn’t close the comments and they don’t appear to be deleting the nasty ones either. So, yes, QEII, Chuck, and the Cambs can all go to hell!

    • Becks1 says:

      They didn’t close the comments, but for the most part the ones on the Cambridges social meda seem okay – lots of “you’re so classy for this” but not too much outright hate (at least from what I could see in a quick scroll.) for Clarence House it’s a different story, lots of “so glad she’s not in the picture” so I commented and told them they should moderate the comments…..I mean no one will do it but I like to at least call them out for it.

      • Izzy says:

        Honestly, is it too much to ask that these new wiz kid crisis PR teams finally DO something about all those hateful comments?

      • Nic919 says:

        Clarence House had closed comments for a while when the Crown was airing so maybe they need to do back to that.

      • Cessily says:

        I would be livid if I was H&M, and I would be putting an immediate end to that. I don’t care if the photos are previously released or not.. if they are allowing filth to fill birthday post for a toddler! Doing nothing will say a lot.
        I do not like any of the child bashing with any of the kids, but especially with Archie since the posts I have seen in the past are more sinister and vile.

      • swirlmamad says:

        I just went on Clarence House’s IG and threw a few ‘bows. LOL

  15. Sofia says:

    It just makes me lol that they’re going to be using the same pics of him year after year.

    Happy Birthday Archie.

    • February-Pisces says:

      I was just thinking that. I wonder how many times they actually went to see archie when they still lived at Frogmore? My guess is never.

  16. Jan says:

    Happy birthday Archie!🎂🏉🤸🏽

  17. Izzy says:

    This may be the first time Lord Baldingham has publicly acknowledged that he has a nephew by Harry and Meghan. But at least they all bothered to acknowledge his birthday, so well done, I guess?

  18. Woke says:

    The only thing that bothers me is the comments left open when they very well know the abuse Meghan and Archie will get. It’s like those behind the accounts enjoy reading them.

  19. Guest says:

    Charles crisis manager cropped out meghan? Nice…

  20. heygingersnaps says:

    Happy, happy birthday to Archie!
    On the other hand some of the headlines here are, “Prince Charles snubs Meghan Markle in baby Archie birthday message”, “Kate shares birthday message to Archile while Charles leaves Meghan out of photo” these hateful rodent rats just can’t help themselves but then again they are in bed with the bitter royal family.

    • Harper says:

      The Royals started all the hate towards Meghan; they aren’t genuinely this supportive. This is a directive from the new crisis managers. I am sure TOB is stomping around Anmer in his dressing robe and cigar and stockinged feet incandescent that he was forced to acknowledge Archie on his Royal Instagram, instead of posting another hilarious YouTube of his life. All they are doing today is providing a platform for their haters to go after Meghan and I’m sure she continues to be hurt by that.

  21. MTC says:

    Did they wish him a happy 1st birthday?

  22. Mina_Esq says:

    I hope we get some new Archie photos today! Little cutie. I hope he has the best birthday.

  23. TheOriginalMia says:

    Happy Birthday, Archie! Hope it’s a great day.

    I think it’s sad the Windsors don’t have any photos of Archie aside from the christening. Nice they acknowledged his birthday.

    • Woke says:

      They brought it on themselves. How hard can it be to be a loving family ?

    • Dawning says:

      Their birthday wishes are just for show. If they really cared about Archie, they wouldn’t have denied them security detail.
      Action speaks louder than words. I am not impressed by these birthday wishes or the “… much loved members of our family,” nonsense.

  24. Gendaphool says:

    He is an innocent child who did not ask to be born into a family with messy relations on both his father’s and mother’s side. It’s nice to see the RF wished him and hope they all love him, setting aside the complicated intra family dynamics.

  25. LaraW” says:

    Happy Birthday Archie!

    H&M, I hope you’ve braced youselves for the terrible two’s! (Spoken as someone who roomed with a family when their child was going through that lovely age. And then the threenager time was fun also…)

    • Becks1 says:

      I call the period from 20 months or so to 3 years old “the dark ages.” Threenagers didn’t bother me so much bc by that point there is a grasp of consequences (and you can bribe them, haha.) its that period when they’re old enough to know what they want and don’t want and are very opinionated and loud but don’t quite have the communication skills yet.

      I’m shuddering just thinking about it.

      • Carolind says:

        In this day and age you should not be using the expression dark or black anything to describe something bad. Think about it. I would be clobbered to high heaven if I did that on any of my book forums.

      • Christine says:

        The “effing fours” was murder on me. 1-3 was a cakewalk.

  26. S808 says:

    Happy Birthday to Archie! His last birthday as an only child. I hope he’s having the best day with his mom, dad and grandma!

  27. Jessica says:

    When I saw the post from the Cambridges, my first thought was “William is still trying to convince everyone he wasn’t the one to ask about Archie’s skin color.” It’s nice that they’re acknowledging that hey, there’s another nephew/grandson, but it really rings false to me. The BRF has shown they don’t actually wish this child any happiness, so faking it for social media just comes off so wrong. But it would have been worse to ignore it, so idk what the answer really is.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Is that the only picture that W&K are in from the christening? If so, that would answer the big question.

      • swirlmamad says:

        I guarantee those are the only pictures W+K have with Archie (well, other than the pap pics of Kate ignoring Meghan/baby Archie at that polo match). Just like that cold-ass pic Charles posted is the only pic he has with him. They’re a pathetic bunch.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @swirlmamad, It does look like a cold-ass pic with Charles and his cutting of security is cold ass. Charles did smile as much as Charles smiles. I would think that if anyone would understand doing things for the woman you love, it would be Charles. That’s why I don’t understand the cutting off of security. The big take from the family portrait is that Meghan understands optics. That big green pillow, to me, represents space from the D & D of Cringe (thanks to CB poster). Some might say Meghan is leaning into Harry, I see Meghan leaning away from W & K. There is a lot of space going on there. That family portrait, tells/confirms to me, who the questioners of skin tone color is/are. I will not buy into any idea of Kate being a peacemaker either. Never.

  28. Over it says:

    Happy 2nd birthday beautiful, smart Archie. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness and love.

  29. Betsy says:

    Nearly two years on and I still love Doria’s entire outfit on the christening day. Perfect color, perfect cut and style, perfect hat… I look forward to this pic on these posts!

  30. Over it says:

    You know what’s truly sad, this is Harry first child. And are you telling me in all the time Archie was in the uk there is not one photo of him with any of these people that wasn’t taken at an official function? So no Harry definitely doesn’t need to return to people who had no time for his first born.

    • Chrissy (The Original) says:

      I’m hoping there are some private pics with maybe the Queen or Eugenie, since MH are close to them.

    • Lemons says:

      I mean…I guess we don’t know if other photos were taken, but if so, this would have been a great opportunity to share them.

      You would think that they would have at least taken a photo altogether at that charity polo match that could be shared. Maybe not.

      • swirlmamad says:

        Ha! Kate couldn’t have made it any clearer that she had no desire for her or her children to even be in the same frame as Meghan/Archie. Plus I think the rumor goes the brothers were raging at each other right around then so there’s no way any group pics exist from that day.

      • Carolind says:

        None of the grandmothers I know would dare post photos on facebook of their grandchildren. Very few parents I know post photos of their children without something covering the faces.

    • iconoclast59 says:

      It’s possible that the BRF has newer photos of Archie and didn’t want to use them without H&M’s express permission, knowing how the latter feel about that issue. And of course they’re too dysfunctional to just pick up the phone or go on Zoom and ask H&M, “Hey, do you mind if we use that Christmas photo you sent us to post a birthday greeting to Master Archie?”

  31. SusanRagain says:

    IMO, Harrys’ birth family, all of them, should privately Zoom each other. Make a quiet peace. So many new babies in the family and do they really want the next time they see each other to be at The Queens funeral?

    In the last 2 years I have lost 3-5 siblings. The remaining sibling and I have been estranged and not spoken to each other in 23 years. As we stood over our favorite brothers grave, I quietly reached out and held his hand. In a few days, I spoke with him. Both apologized, such a waste of time. By God, I did not want to stand at his grave filled with years of regret to live with.

    Happy Birthday Archie! Wishing everyone here a good day too!

    • Emmitt says:

      They will not have peace as long as they are rude and/or cold and/or plotting against Archie’s mother. They don’t have to like Meghan but they do need to respect Meghan as Harry’s wife. If they can’t do that, if they keep smearing Harry’s wife, they will not have any peace from Harry. It’s as simple as that.

    • Ebony Rising says:

      I think people are purposely missing that this is not just some minor misunderstanding that can swept under the rug. Harry’s family tried to destroy his wife. Do you understand? They hoped that she would no longer exist. How do you just pretend that didn’t happen and move on and pretend to be a family? Especially since they are still trying to destroy her and won’t ever stop.

      • Rose says:

        I didn’t read it like that. I read SusanRagains post as one about the Windsors needing to acknowledge the consequences of the one sided war they’re waging against the Sussexes and do better. That’s a sentiment I can get behind because as Susan says the cost of that is very high for everyone involved. It would be awful if the next time they see each other is The Queen’s funeral cause for us as fans of Harry and Meghan that’s us understanding loud and clear that the Windsors would not learn, educate themselves about racism, apologise and be kind to their own family. That would hurt anyone including Harry and Meghan. I hope for better from the Windsors for their sake. I don’t believe the Windsors are capable of it but I hope they do right by Harry, Meghan and their family.

  32. Over it says:

    Tell me you don’t melt just a little every time you see Harry holding his beautiful son.

  33. Victoria says:

    My Bday was yesterday along with Slaydele (I’m the elder so it was my bday first!) How Blessed Archie is to be a part of the House Taurean! We welcome him into the fold and know he will be amazing!

    Happy Bday Archie. Everyone can’t be a Cinco de Mayo baby but we are here for May 6th realness too! Love that Charlotte and Archie are May babies.

    It’s a shame her stupid parents made it so they won’t be close.

    • BarbN says:

      Happy Birthday yesterday Victoria and Slaydele! Mine is today, and I love that I share it with dear Archie, happy 2nd bday dear boy! Hope you’re having a beautiful celebration with your parents and Nana Doria, and your chickens, too. May the year ahead be filled with many joys, adventures and blessings!

  34. Oh says:

    Why do they post pictures about his birthday? We know what they did to his mother when she was pregnant with him. Did they post pictures of other great-grandchildren on their birthdays? I don’t think so. Ughh That family is soo EVIL. Wait until Harry’s birthday, they’ll post pictures of Harry alone and as a third wheel like they did last year.

  35. Amy Bee says:

    The Royal Family was forced to acknowledge Archie’s birthday, even if it’s with old pictures, because of the fallout from the Oprah interview. I’m guessing the Palace were afraid that if they didn’t, they would be called racist. The Palace having to use old pictures just shows that there is no relationship between Harry, Meghan and the rest of the family.

    • Ginger says:

      I think they would have wished him a happy birthday regardless because it’s a time for their racist fan base to really come out. Same for Meghan and Harry. They will always wish them a happy birthday for that reason alone . They know who their core fan base is.

  36. Myra says:

    I feel like they would have ignored his birthday had the Oprah interview not happened. They probably feel that not saying anything now could, justifiably, be used to prove the point that one of them did comment on Archie’s skin colour. That interview has probably put a wrench in a lot of their plans.

    Happy birthday, Archie!

  37. Curious says:

    all i see in these messages is that ,someone asking charles, sir, should we post something about Archie birthday .? and shows him pics, which pic should we use..they all had their people post something. but how can they congratulate the child, when they don’t want the child and his mother to be part of their family? this is the same child they wished Meghan never had. they bully meghan so bad ,they was hoping she miscarried the baby or kill herself.. so for me, this is too fake. is like when i read about domestic violence , they get abused or mental abuse, then then the abuser will buy them presents to cheer them up.. till it happens again in a week or 2 . who knows maybe they all forgot Harry/ Meghan phone num, where they can do zoom and wish him a happy birthday.maybe the queen will do a zoom call with Archie today..

  38. MerryGirl says:

    Happy Birthday Master Archie Harrison Moutbatten-Windsor 🎁

  39. Red Weather Tiger says:

    There will never be a cuter picture of Harry and Archie than that one with the hat from that Canadian holiday/escape. It is simply the best.

    Happy Birthday, little Archie. ❤️

    • Jules says:

      I agree. I love that pic and bought a similar hat for my grandson who is a few months younger than Archie.

  40. Amelie says:

    Charles and Kate and William posted the exact same pictures from the baptism they posted last year in 2020 for Archie’s birthday, I checked. The Queen’s social media people at least posted a different picture (they posted the picture of Prince Philip and the Queen smiling at Archie with Doria, Harry, and Meghan on the day of the photocall to present Archie to the world last year). They don’t have any other official pictures to use so they keep reusing the same ones from the first photocall and the baptism.

    If Harry and Meghan decide not to release anything this year for Archie’s birthday, maybe they’ll release something when Meghan gives birth? I would imagine they would probably release a nice family photo like they did for the maternity photo shoot maybe with Archie’s head not showing. Happy birthday little Archie!

    Btw Kate and William have updated their Instagram handle to @thedukeandduchessofcambridge. It isn’t @kensingtonroyal anymore.

    So many Tauruses in the family :)

    • Soupie says:

      Yes and it’s a good combination with his parents. He will resonate with his dad and give his mom a run for her money!

      Anybody thinking that the book release is timed to be on or really near Meghan’s due date? I do.

    Happy birthday Archie!!!

    Crisis managers told the BRF it would be bad optics if there were no birthday wishes; that they are taking it out on a toddler.

    Cue the rollout of Bad Dad and TOD.

    Happy Birthday, Archie!

    The happy birthday messages seem cold, unimaginative and stilted…sorta like the well-wishers.

    this makes my blood boil. anger and more anger, when their abusers is wishing their son a happy birthday.. Catherine the karen of the royals, never apologize for making her sister in law suffer for yrs. she kept her mouth shut. none of the royals protected Meghan. i am guessing we all know it is to make themselves look good in the eyes of the world… i am sure the queen saw these headlines and did nothing. cause maybe the queen knew it was william. that bitch is so 2 faced its sad. she will under mind everything to keep their position…

  47. TeamAwesome says:

    Aww, they released a pic!

    I kinda wished they didn’t tbh. They’re probably still trying to figure out his skin tone and ways to shank his parents.

    • swirlmamad says:

      I just googled it and it’s kinda genius to be honest. Similar feel to the family Christmas card. It’s from behind and sepia b/w toned, so you can’t pinpoint his hair color, skin tone or any of that. All you can see is he has a head of curly hair and that’s it.

  49. Carolind says:

    Not being funny, but William and Kate have got absolutely no right to be calling Archie, just Archie. In notifications, they invariably, ridiculously always refer to their own children as Prince……, Princess……… They should accord that same privilege to every other child in the world. Archie should be Master Archie.

    • CrystalBall says:

      I agree – but let us console ourselves with these thoughts: Meghan will not be curtsying to Keen Kween Kate one day as she is unlikely to be in the same place. But the day will come when Charles is King and Keen Katie will have to bend her knee in the presence of Camilla!

      • equality says:

        As an American citizen, Meghan never has to bow to any of them. If she does it is only out of courtesy.

      • Katherine says:

        Heck even British citizens don’t technically have to. It’s looking increasingly goofy when some host of a charity event does the silly little bob. The family are the ones that seem so obsessive over who entered a room first and who they curtseyed to and if it’s the first time you see the Queen that day.

    Birthday blessings to Archie. We share the same birthday 😊

    I understand why H/M is not posting new pic with Archie Face.the black and white pics is a good way to see him but not see his features.he is being protected,cause he will start school and they don’t want anyone to hunt him down if they know what he looks like. i also think he will have a fake name when he starts school.so the press can’t find him. with all the hate that is going on for her and her son,it will be easy for someone to track down Archie when he starts school,but if they don’t know what he looks like ,it will make Archie life easier..I am guessing that pap pic of Meghan carrying Archie is illegal. cause they posted a black and white pic of Archie back,looking up at balloons. there are mentally ill people out there that will try to harm Archie/Meghan. so i think she is going about this in the right way . she can’t expose her son to the press. when it comes to Archie and his mother ,evil is always lurking in the shadows to harm them….
