Royal fans have spotted out that Prince Charles’ recent birthday message to Prince Harry’s son Archie which he shared on social media didn’t include a photo of the baby’s mom, Meghan Markle.
“Happy birthday to Archie, who turns two today,” the British prince captioned a snap of himself with son Harry and grandson Archie. Followers immediately made note of Markle’s absence, as she was included in other dedications to the toddler posted by other family members.
One user wrote, “Sad! Very sad state of affairs when the supposed future king cuts the mother of his grandchild out of the photo with which he chooses to share. Yes, they haven’t seen Archie for over 12mnths, but to not include Meghan… it’ll only add fuel to the fire of the tabloids. #Archie.”
“Lovely picture, but where is Meghan on the picture?” another added.
Another wrote, “Why would you not call him your grandson and why cut his mother off?” “You have made a lot of mistakes yourself or have you forgotten that. This is not helping at all,” another person tweeted.

Other royals were sure to include pictures of Archie with his mother within their birthday wishes, including Prince William and the Queen herself.
“Wishing Archie Mountbatten-Windsor a very happy 2nd birthday today,” said a message posted on Queen Elizabeth II’s official ‘Royal Family’ Twitter account, with an emoji of a red balloon.
It’s been reported that Prince Charles is still fuming over Meghan and Harry’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, “Charles is still fuming about Harry throwing shade at him and the royal family in the big interview and won’t let it drop,” a source told Us Weekly.
