The Duke of Sussex celebrates turning 37 on September 15. It is Harry’s second birthday since Megxit saw him and Meghan, 40, quit royal duties and move to the US.
And it is the Duke’s first birthday since becoming a father-of-two, following the birth of his and the Duchess’s daughter Lilibet Diana in June.
Meghan will no doubt make the day special for Harry with his two children Archie and Lili.
The former actress previously opened up on birthdays on her now-closed blog The Tig.
Writing in 2016, she said: “My mom has always said that birthdays are your own personal New Year.
“Your own chance to make resolutions just for yourself and what you prognosticate for your year ahead.”
Harry and Meghan are living in a mansion in Montecito with two-year-old Archie and Lili.
The couple quit royal duties in March 2020 and moved across the pond.
Earlier in September, Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland turned 65 so it has been a busy month for family birthdays.

Writing for News Australia, Ms Elser said: “There is a certain cruel irony here when you contrast this state of play with the reality that Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, now face, having traded royal working life for ‘peace’ in the US, far, far away from the long arm of the courtiers and the British press they dislike so intensely.”
