Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's second birthday celebrations are continuing!

While the public has only been treated to a few rare photos of Archie since he was welcomed into the world in May 2019, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have surprised fans by releasing an adorable new photo of the birthday boy.

Posting a lengthy birthday tribute on their Archewell foundation website to honour their son, they also shared a sweet picture of Archie holding a large bunch of balloons with his back to the camera.

Alongside the photo, Harry and Meghan – who are currently expecting their second child – said they are "deeply touched" by those who have sent their well-wishes on Archie's special day.

They wrote: "We have been deeply touched over the past two years to feel the warmth and support for our family in honour of Archie's birthday.

"Many of you donate to charities on his behalf and mark the occasion by giving back or doing an act of service - all through the goodness of your hearts. You raise funds for those who need it most and continue to do so organically and selflessly. We remain incredibly grateful."

Happy birthday Archie!
