MEGHAN Markle will throw a “low-key” birthday bash for Prince Archie, after the tot’s birthday clashed with King Charles’ Coronation.
Prince Harry’s eldest son turns four next month – with the May 6 birthday marked with small-scale family celebrations led by mum Meghan, 41.
Guests at the couple’s Montecito mansion will include the toddler’s younger sister Lilibet and Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland.
But Harry, 38, will not be present at the party – as he jets across the pond for a whistlestop visit to King Charles’ Coronation, which takes place on the same day.
A source told PEOPLE magazine: “They’ll have friends around them and Meghan’s mum, Doria.
“Meghan will definitely have support that weekend.
“Archie loves Lili. He’s such a sweet boy. When she’s not around, he asks, ‘Where’s Lili?’”
Archie’s birthday is believed to be a key reason for the Duchess’ decision to dodge the grand Westminster Abbey event, instead choosing to watch from home in California.
