Like any good Instagram wife, Meghan Markle shared a sweet tribute to her husband Prince Harry in honor of his birthday. Yesterday, the Duchess of Sussex posted a photo collage with images from Prince Harry’s life to the their official Instagram account, including a never-before-seen shot of their three-month-old son Archie.
The adorable collage features images of Prince Harry as a young boy with his mother, the late Princess Diana, as well as snapshots of his accomplishments throughout the years. “Wishing a very happy birthday to His Royal Highness Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex!” the post reads.

Markle then wrote a special birthday message to her husband. “Your service to the causes you care so deeply for inspires me every day. You are the best husband and most amazing dad to our son. We love you ❤️Happiest birthday!”
Perhaps the sweetest photo in the bunch is a previously unreleased photo (above) of Prince Harry, the Duchess, and their son from the day of baby Archie’s christening in July. The black and white image shows Markle cradling Archie on her lap while Prince Harry kneels down to get a look at his son, and the shot gives fans a great glimpse at baby Archie’s adorable face.

This morning, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was christened in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle at an intimate service officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are so happy to share the joy of this day with members of the public who have been incredibly supportive since the birth of their son. They thank you for your kindness in welcoming their first born and celebrating this special moment. Their Royal Highnesses feel fortunate to have enjoyed this day with family and the godparents of Archie. Their son, Archie, was baptised wearing the handmade replica of the royal christening gown which has been worn by royal infants for the last 11 years. The original Royal Christening Robe, made of fine Honiton lace lined with white satin, was commissioned by Queen Victoria in 1841 and first worn by her eldest daughter. It was subsequently worn for generations of Royal christenings, including The Queen, her children and her grandchildren until 2004, when The Queen commissioned this handmade replica, in order for the fragile historic outfit to be preserved, and for the tradition to continue.

The royal family shared two other images from the christening earlier this summer, but this new image has royal fans reeling. The post has close to a million likes and an outpouring of love for both Prince Harry and his beautiful family. It’s not exactly hard to see why.
“It’s your turn to inspire another generation to be kind and help the unfortunate!!! You and Megan [sic] are off to an impressive start!!” one royal fan commented. “Let me just say that the love that you and your wife share is an example for others to follow. Baby Archie is a lucky little boy,” added another.
