A friend of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry shared an image of Prince Archie and Princess Diana during the Coronation.
The youngster and Duchess of Sussex were absent from King Charles III's Coronation this weekend, although the Duke of Sussex was present, albeit briefly.
Wishing Archie, four, a happy birthday, photographer Misan Harriman showed off a touching tribute which showed the Prince with his hand on a portrait of Princess Diana.

The Instagram post went on to rack up over 15,000 likes, a screengrab from the recent Harry and Meghan Netflix documentary, but the original post has been criticised for "shading" the Royal Family.
Prince Archie's birthday, which fell on the same day as King Charles' Coronation, was celebrated by the Sussex family and their friend, Harriman.
Screengrabs taken from the documentary clip, where Meghan can be heard telling the youngster "that's your grandma", made their way onto Misan's Instagram account.
She captioned the post: "Wishing you the happiest of birthdays Archie," and many commenters did much the same, giving their birthday best to the young royal.
One comment from an Instagram praised Misan for the "sweet pic" of the youngster and his grandmother.

But a separate comment alleged the post was meant to be a dig at the King of England, whose Coronation date fell on the same day as his grandson's birthday.
That user wrote: "I see the subtle shade."
A third user was much more appreciative of the post of Prince Archie seeing the photograph of Princess Diana, saying: "Happy beautiful Archie – today is also my daughter’s birthday today. Such an adorable photograph…
"My eyes are on lovely Harry on this coronation day. His beautiful mum would be so proud of him."
The Daily Star previously reported the Duke of Sussex's appearance at the Coronation, with Harry "clearly enjoying" the day, according to royal expert Tessa Dunlop.
