Bike shop owner Jennifer Blevins explained how her British-born partner Martin wanted to give Archie one of their children’s bikes for his fourth birthday.

“He went and got some birthday balloons, and he got some flowers for Meghan and a birthday card, and he said: ‘Okay, I’m gonna bike over and take it to their house,’” she told People.

Security outside Harry and Meghan’s house asked whether the bike shop owner had received an invitation from the couple to which he replied, “I’m just a British business in town that wanted to give Archie a gift.”

He was then allowed to leave the flowers, card, balloons, and bike for Archie after they performed a background check, the report claimed.

Jennifer Blevins said, “I wasn’t expecting that. I had no idea. It was so thoughtful because, you know, they took the time to write something personal and not just a generic thank you.”

“Every celebrity in that town has bought bikes from us, and they all come through there. None of them sent a thank you letter," she added.
