Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have posted a message to their followers on their son Archie's second birthday, calling for people to donate to a charity offering underprivileged communities Covid vaccines.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they had been "deeply touched to feel the warmth and support" of their family in honor of Archie's birthday.

In a joint statement on their Archewell foundation website, Harry and Meghan said: "We will not be able to truly recover until everyone, everywhere, has equal access to the vaccine.

"And with that intention, we are inviting you to contribute whatever you can – if you have the means to do so – to bring vaccines to families in the world's most vulnerable places.

"For a donation of just 5 dollars, you can cover the cost of a dose for someone in need. And because we were able to secure matching support from a number of organizations, that 5 you give will automatically turn into 20 dollars – covering the cost of four doses."

The message was signed simply "Harry & Meg".

Earlier in the day, The Queen wished her great-grandson Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a happy birthday.

A tweet from the official royal family account, accompanied by a photograph of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex with their son days after he was born, said: “Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton posted a heartwarming family portrait to their official Instagram account.

The photo shows members of the Royal Family gathered around proud parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle holding their newborn son at his christening.

"Wishing Archie a very happy 2nd birthday today," the caption reads.

Grandpa Prince Charles also sent his best wishes on the special occasion.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall posted on Twitter: "Happy birthday to Archie, who turns two today."
