Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is celebrating his second birthday on May 6 and he has received gifts from members of the royal family, according to a royal expert.

Royal editor Russell Myers revealed that Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family have already sent their presents across the pond and they have publicly greeted the two-year-old on social media as well before anyone else could comment on a "snub."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also released a photo of Mountbatten-Windsor but they have purposely hidden his face from public view. The couple has always expressed that they want to shield their son from the spotlight hence the new photo is of the toddler holding a balloon with his back to the camera.


They shared the photo on their official site, along with a plea to vaccine makers and the public to donate for vaccine equity as their gift for their son. The couple's newest advocacy is for vulnerable families across the world to have access to vaccines.

Harry and Meghan personally wrote an open letter addressed to vaccine makers like Pfizer and Moderna to distribute 100 million vials to poor families as soon as possible. The couple said that they strongly believe the world can overcome COVID-19 if everyone has "equal access to the vaccine."

Meanwhile, royal expert Katie Nicholl said that Harry and Meghan likely held a Zoom birthday party for their son with the royal family, the same as last year. Nicholl said that since Harry is in frequent contact with his grandmother, the queen, there should be another Zoom call with her for this special day.

Nicholl also believes that the Sussex family was in touch with the rest of Harry's family members given his closeness to his cousins and their children. Despite reports that the Duke of Sussex still has issues to resolve, especially with his father, Prince Charles, Nicholl believes that they all connected for their son's birthday online.

Queen Elizabeth led the birthday greetings for Mountbatten-Windsor on social media, followed by Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Royal fans, however, were wondering why the birthday greetings had the toddler's newborn and christening photos, instead of an updated shot of Mountbatten-Windsor.

Some royal fans assumed that the royal family posted old photos of Harry and Markle's son to respect his privacy. However, many loyal followers are still hoping that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will release a new video of their son just like last year when he was shown enjoying a book with Markle.
