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!

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
