Prince Philip is celebrating his 99th birthday today, and though obviously distanced from most of his family, the Duke of Edinburgh will not be without a bevy of well-wishes. According to Harper's Bazaar, Philip’s grandson Prince Harry, granddaughter-in-law Meghan Markle, and great-grandson Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor reportedly have or will be placing a video call to the royal on Wednesday.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their 1-year-old son recently relocated to L.A. Apparently Archie has been relishing his FaceTime playdates in quarantine, while Markle has been stepping behind the camera as well (in a Zoom call with the women of Hubb Community Kitchen in London, a story-telling session for Archie’s birthday, and a powerful commencement speech regarding the Black Lives Matter movement). The rest of the royal family has been embracing video chat to communicate as well.

The palace celebrated Philip’s birthday with a new photo of himself and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, standing outside Windsor Castle. According to a second post, he will be spending his day “with The Queen at Windsor.”
