Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry don’t have social media, but there’s been some speculation around the internets that they could share the first photo of their daughter, Lilibet, in honor of Meghan’s birthday—so stay tuned.
The couple is said to be spending a low-key day together with their kids, according to sources who spoke to Page Six, with no big plans for a birthday party, although Harry “may still whisk [Meghan] off on an intimate getaway” somewhere super close to their home in Montecito.
The outlet notes that any reports of a party are false and that “things will be quiet with their newborn and their 2-year-old son, Archie” in light of increasing COVID-19 cases in California.
The Sussexes have been pretty out of the spotlight since Lilibet’s birth, although Prince Harry did recently announce his upcoming memoir, which has caused a bit of drama among both the royal family and his own circle of former Eton and Army friends.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” Harry said in a statement about the book. “I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story—the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned—I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
