Prince Harry and Meghan are expected to spend Easter in private with their son, Archie, who turns two next month.

It's been a turbulent time for the family, who recently appeared in a shocking interview with TV personality Oprah, discussing their struggles being part of the British Monarchy.

The couple now live in their family home in Santa Barbara and are thought to be enjoying some downtime together over the Easter period, according to HELLO! magazine. The Royal Family’s relationship with Meghan and Harry has been a bumpy one, especially after the release of Oprah's tell-all interview

Recently, Prince Harry revealed how he and Archie love to spend time outdoors together, sharing special father-and-son moments.

He said, over some pre-recorded footage showing Archie running and playing on the beach, "This year has been crazy for everybody.

"But to have outdoor space where I can go for walks with Archie, we can go for walks as a family and with the dogs. We can go for hikes or go down to the beach which is so close.

"All of these things, I guess the highlight for me is sticking him on the back of a bicycle in his little baby seat and taking him on a bike ride which is something I was never able to do when I was young."

Archie will soon become a big brother after it was announced on Valentine's Day that Meghan and Harry are having another child - a baby girl. This will be Archie's second Californian Easter.

It's no surprise that the couple is planning to spend the Easter festivities at home, considering that LA is still working to vaccinate all of its residents and the public is advised to stay home.

Across the pond, the Queen and Prince Charles enjoyed a socially distanced walk together on the grounds of Frogmore House, which is on the same grounds as Frogmore Cottage, sharing two new pictures with the public.

We're sure the family of three - soon to be four - will have a lovely day celebrating together.

Wishing all our readers a happy Easter!
