Prince Archie received the royal treatment on his 4th birthday, as he was gifted a bike that was hand-delivered by the owner of a local shop. The owners of Mad Dogs & Englishmen Bike Shop in Montecito, California, took time to think about the young royal on May 6, a day when the world was preparing to witness the coronation of King Charles.

The letter of appreciation from the Office of Prince Harry and Meghan was shared on the bike shop's Instagram. It conveyed the couple's sincere thanks for the thoughtful gift and expressed how much joy the bike has brought to Prince Archie and the entire family. 

The letter stated, "The bike has brought much joy, and is most appreciated by the family. They asked that I convey their gratitude at the lovely surprise."
