On the 37th birthday of her grandson, the Duke of Sussex, the Queen sent him a heartfelt message.
To commemorate Prince Harry’s special day, the royal family’s social media accounts shared four photos of him, including one with wife Meghan from their royal tour of Australia in 2018 and another of the Duke helping schoolchildren plant trees in Botswana.
“Wishing The Duke of Sussex a very happy birthday today!” read the caption.
Since stepping down from royal duties with wife Meghan in March 2020, Harry has returned to the UK twice. In April, he flew in for the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, and in July, he and the Duke of Cambridge unveiled a statue of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, at Kensington Palace.
The Sussexes are expected to celebrate Harry’s birthday privately with their two-year-old son Archie and three-month-old daughter Lilibet at their Montecito home.
In a new BBC documentary honouring his late grandfather, Prince Philip, Harry will appear alongside members of the royal family.
In a trailer for Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, he and his brother, Prince William, both appeared.
“He’s always been a huge presence behind everything we’ve done really,” William says at the start of the video.
The focus then shifts to Harry, who adds: “With my grandfather, you get exactly what you see. He was himself, no apologies.”
All of the Queen and Duke’s children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward, will be featured in the programme, which will air on September 22nd.
Interviews with the late Duke’s adult grandchildren, including Zara Tindall, who says in the trailer, “You never really prepare yourself for losing him because he was always there,” are included.
