How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Celebrating Son Prince Archie’s 5th Birthday

Prince Archie turned 5 on May 6, and PEOPLE understands the family is celebrating his birthday privately before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming travel plans. Prince Harry, 39, is heading to the U.K. this week for the celebrations surrounding the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games, and Meghan, 42, is set to reunite with her husband later in the week for a visit to Nigeria also spotlighting the sporting competition for veterans and service personnel.

Archie’s fifth birthday coincides with the first anniversary of his grandfather King Charles’ coronation. Prince Harry attended his father’s crowning ceremony last year, heading to the airport shortly after the event to fly back to California for his son’s birthday festivities. Meghan missed the coronation, staying in the U.S., where they moved in 2020 after stepping back as working members of the royal family, with Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, now 2.

A source told PEOPLE ahead of Archie’s fourth birthday that a “low-key” party was planned at the family’s home.

“They’ll have friends around them and Meghan’s mom, Doria [Ragland]. Meghan will definitely have support that weekend,” the source said.

Little sister Lilibet was also set to be part of the festivities. “They are so sweet together. Archie loves Lili. He’s such a sweet boy. When she’s not around, he asks, ‘Where’s Lili?’ ” the source added.

After being born in the U.K., Archie celebrated his first birthday in the U.S. in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. To celebrate the milestone, his parents shared a sweet video of their son reading the picture book Duck! Rabbit! on Meghan’s lap. The clip was shared in partnership with Save the Children’s #SaveWithStories campaign, launched to help kids adversely impacted by the pandemic.

They are celebrating as a family focused on Archie and being together,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “They’ll have a smash cake and Zooms with family and friends. It’s been beautiful weather, so perhaps a family stroll with the dogs.”

Fans also got a glimpse of the festivities in the 2022 Netflix documentary Harry & Meghan, which showed Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland in attendance and Archie wearing a yellow party hat.

For Archie’s second birthday in 2021, Meghan and Harry shared a new photo of him holding balloons on the website of the Archewell Foundation. The couple asked for donations to COVID-19 vaccine equity for vulnerable families around the world.

“We cannot think of a more resonant way to honor our son’s birthday,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a message. “If we all show up, with compassion for those we both know and don’t know, we can have a profound impact. Even a small contribution can have a ripple effect. Together, we can uplift, protect and care for one another.”

While Prince Harry and Meghan didn’t share any new updates for Archie’s third birthday, he received well wishes on social media from the royal family.
