After a non-stop summer that kicked off with his wedding to Meghan Markle, Prince Harry celebrated yet another milestone over the weekend: his 34th birthday.

The royal family marked Harry's big day by sharing sweet messages on social media on September 15. The official royal family Instagram account shared a photo of a smiling Harry with the caption: "Wishing HRH The Duke of Sussex a very Happy Birthday!? #HappyBirthdayHRH."

Kensington Palace, the official account for Prince William and Duchess Kate and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, also posted a birthday photo on Instagram. The photo was captioned: "Thank you everyone for your lovely messages on The Duke of Sussex’s birthday! #HappyBirthdayHRH."

We don't have any official word on how Prince Harry actually spent his day, but we wouldn't be surprised to learn it was a quiet night at home. Meghan and Harry have often said it's their favorite way to spend time together, and the couple have an otherwise busy fall season to tackle.

Harry and Meghan were last photographed earlier this month at the 100 Days to Peace Gala in London. The charity concert benefitted a number of veterans support organizations.

The royal newlyweds also attended the WellChild Awards a few days prior. The WellChild Awards celebrates inspirational children and young people battling serious illnesses across the United Kingdom. Harry and Meghan spent time with each award winner during the event.

Harry and Meghan are gearing up for a busy fall. Next month, the royals will embark on a whirlwind royal tour of the Oceania region, with stops in Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand. They will first arrive in Sydney, Australia on October 16, and return home on October 31 from Rotorua, New Zealand. Kensington Palace released a full itinerary for the trip earlier this month:

During the royal tour, Harry and Meghan will also attend the annual Invictus Games, the international adaptive sport competition for servicemen, women, and veterans that Prince Harry founded in 2014. Harry and Meghan made their first public appearance together at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto. This year's games will be held in Sydney. Earlier this year, the couple attended U.K. team trials in England.

Would you mark a birthday with an Instagram tribute?

Yes! It's a sweet way to say "Happy Birthday."

No, I like to keep my birthday wishes private.
