Prince Harry turned 35 on Sunday, Sept. 15, and the Duke of Sussex received some birthday greetings from other members of the royal family, including his brother and sister-in-law.
To mark the occasion, Prince William and Kate Middleton offered Harry a special message in celebration of this 35th birthday — his first since welcoming baby Archie with wife Meghan Markle.
“Wishing a very happy birthday to The Duke of Sussex today! 🎂” read the message posted to the Kensington Royal Instagram social media accounts, accompanying a photo of the two brothers attired in their full military regalia.
The Queen and Prince Philip also took to social media to share birthday greetings for their grandson.
“Happy Birthday to The Duke of Sussex – 35 today!”
Prince Charles likewise shared a photo of himself and his son on the Clarence House Instagram page, writing: “Wishing a very Happy Birthday to The Duke of Sussex who turns 35 today!”
The Duchess of Sussex also shared a birthday greeting to her husband via social media, sharing numerous photos of the prince at varying ages along (including a new, never seen before photo on the bottom right) with a sweet message.
“Your service to the causes you care so deeply for inspires me every day,” she wrote. “You are the best husband and most amazing dad to our son. We love you ❤️Happiest birthday!”
