Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle are set to reveal something very exciting next week as they mark a special celebration.

  • Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle are set to reveal something very exciting next week as they mark their son Archie Harrison’s first birthday.
  • The Duke and Duchess are currently building a new life away from the Royal Family, after officially stepping back as senior royals at the end of last month.
  • In other royal news, Prince Charles has revealed that he was ‘utterly heartbroken' after receiving tragic news in moving video.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are set to reveal something very exciting next week as the mark the first birthday of their baby son Archie Harrison.

A spokesperson for the couple has revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will mark their son’s birthday by releasing a new previously-unseen photo of the toddler.

"You can expect to see him," the spokesperson revealed to the Sunday Times.

However, the spokesperson did not reveal the choice of platform the couple will use to share the new snap, as they stopped using their Sussex Royal Instagram account when they stepped down as senior royals last month.

When announcing their ‘next chapter’ back in January, the duo said that they planned to work towards the ‘launch of our new charitable entity’ and in their last Sussex Royal post just three weeks ago, the pair wrote that they ‘look forward to reconnecting with you soon’.

So this special new photo could be a way of launching a brand new social media account for the couple to use.

The last time fans were treated to a glimpse of the growing royal was when Harry and Meghan sent out a Christmas card with a photo of a seven-month-old Archie back in December.

We’re sure the little one looks a lot different now that he will be turning one next week!
