Harry posts the image on Instagram , writing: “Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Pa, Grandpa!”
The Duke of Sussex has posted a previously unseen photo of him with Archie and the Prince of Wales on social media to wish his father a happy birthday.
Charles, who has spent his 71st birthday in Mumbai, India, can be seen looking on at his grandson, cradled in Prince Harry’s arms, in an image which was taken at Archie’s christening in July.
Harry posted the image on the Sussexes’ Instagram account, writing: “Happy birthday to His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales – Sir, Pa, Grandpa!” It was followed by a birthday cake emoji.
The black and white image taken by Chris Allerton shows the infant royal in his baptism robes.
It comes a day after it emerged that Harry, his wife Meghan and Archie, would not be spending Christmas with the Queen at Sandringham.
A spokesperson for the couple told Sky News they were “looking forward to extended family time” at the end of the month.
The spokesperson added: “Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, their Royal Highnesses will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the duchess’ mother Doria Ragland.”
