The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first-born child Archie turned three this weekend and the royal family commemorated the occasion by sharing sweet family photographs.

A photo posted on the Royal Family’s official Twitter account showed the Queen and her late husband Prince Philip meeting Archie as a newborn.

The accompanying message read: "Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 3rd Birthday!"

Joining them in sending birthday wishes to the couple's son were the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The parents of three to Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, seven and Prince Louis, four, shared a photograph from Archie's christening, which took place on 6 July 2019 in a private chapel at Windsor Castle.

It also featured Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and two of Princess Diana’s sisters.

The Cambridges captioned the snap: "Wishing Archie a very happy 3rd Birthday today."

Prince Charles posted the same photo to his own Clarence House Twitter account, writing: "Happy Birthday Archie!"

In April, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly promised the Queen that she would be able to hug her great-grandchildren, including 10-month-old Lilibet, "in the near future".

This was understood to have happened during the couple's quick visit to Windsor Castle on Easter Sunday, prior to arriving in Holland, Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

The trip marked the couple's first return to the UK since they stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020. The occasion saw Prince Harry briefly reunite with Prince Charles, too.

Prince Harry previously aired his concerns about flying to the UK due to security issues. It's now been confirmed that he and Meghan will fly over to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations next month.
