Meghan and Harry will celebrate Meghan's birthday with their son Archie in LA

The pair are expected to mark the occasion at their temporary home in LA, which Harry gave a sneak-peek into after joining a virtual global summit for his sustainable tourism project Travalyst, revealing a corner in the home with cream walls, and two windows with dark oak frames. Harry sat on a matching oak armchair with cream cushions, while next to him there was a vase of cream orchids. Another video of Meghan reading a storybook to her son Archie saw the pair snuggled in a cream leather armchair in front of a wall with light yellow walls, next to a large green plant.
