Prince Harry celebrated his 34th birthday yesterday, and we’re still dying to know what incredibly thoughtful gift Meghan Markle thought up for her husband. Although that might remain a secret (for now, at least), the Royal Family did shower Prince Harry with a ton of love on Saturday by posting sweet tributes to him on social media.
On the @theroyalfamily Instagram account, a dashing photo of the prince went up, along with a caption that read, “Wishing HRH The Duke of Sussex a very Happy Birthday! #HappyBirthdayHRH.” Thousands of comments and “happy birthdays!” followed from all over the world, naturally.
The Kensington Palace’s official Instagram also posted a picture of Prince Harry and wrote a thank-you to everyone who had sent him birthday wishes. “Thank you everyone for your lovely messages on The Duke of Sussex’s birthday! #HappyBirthdayHRH,” the caption said.
2018 was a huge year for Prince Harry: He got married to Markle and staged one of the most stunning weddings in royal history. Since then, he’s been enjoying a whirlwind few months with his new bride, attending several PDA-filled public engagements, breaking into song occasionally, bringing new four-legged members into his family, and cheekily dodging questions about kids.
Prince Harry’s 34th year is already looking like a significant one: He and Markle recently announced that they’ll embark on their first royal tour together that will include visits to Fiji, Australia, the Kingdom of Tonga, and New Zealand in October.
Markle also celebrated her first birthday as a royal recently: She turned 37 on August 4. Like the thoughtful duchess she is, Markle sent notes and photos from Kensington Palace to everyone who’d wished her well (similar mailers went out after the Royal Wedding).
It’s a strong start to what’s undoubtedly going to be a memorable year. Happy birthday, Harry!
