Duchess Meghan surprises royal fans by releasing previously unseen picture of Archie and Harry
London - It wouldn’t be a birthday without at least one surprise.
And the Duchess of Sussex sprung a touching one for husband Harry’s 35th on Sunday when she revealed a previously unseen picture of their son Archie gazing lovingly at his father.
The black and white image, from Archie’s christening, was part of a down-the-years collage Meghan posted on social media.
The sequence started with the royal as a baby in mum Diana’s arms and moved on to his first day at nursery and teenage years with brother William. It then featured his charity work, his time in the Army and his wedding day.
