Happy birthday, Prince Harry!

Yesterday the Duke of Sussex turned 35 and in celebration of her husband's special day, Meghan Markle took to Instagram to share a sweet birthday post, complete with a gift for their fans: A never-before-seen photo of their baby boy, Master Archie.

As part of a collage of nine images of Harry throughout his years, the Duchess included a new shot of the four-month-old at his royal christening in July.

Alongside the beautiful photographs, the new mum wrote: "Wishing a very happy birthday to His Royal Highness Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex!

"Your service to the causes you care so deeply for inspires me every day.

"You are the best husband and most amazing dad to our son. We love you. Happiest birthday!"

In the black and white image, Harry can be seen kneeling before Meghan - who is sitting on a couch - while he coos at little Archie.

In return, Archie appears to be staring back at his dad while the 38-year-old former actress holds his tiny hand. 

As well as the brand new photo of Archie, Meghan included a nod to the late Princess Diana incorporating a picture of her holding a very young Prince Harry in the collage.

Kate Middleton and Prince William also took to social media this morning to wish Harry a happy birthday.

Posting a touching photograph of the brothers together, they wrote: "Wishing a very happy birthday to the Duke of Sussex today!"

Meanwhile, the Royal Family account also posted their own sweet snap of Harry with the Queen, wishing the royal a happy birthday.

Next week, Harry and Meghan are set to travel with Archie to South Africa for what will mark their first royal tour as a family of three.

The new family will visit the countries of South Africa, Malawi, Angola and Botswana, where the couple visited privately while dating in 2017.
