Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have shared a beautiful new photo of their son, Archie, to mark Meghan Markle’s first Mother’s Day.
The Duchess of Sussex welcomed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor exactly a week ago today. On Sunday, May 12 was Mother’s day in the US and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated it by sharing a photo of baby Archie among a bed of Princess Diana’s favourite flowers – Forget-me-not flowers.
The caption accompanying the photo reads: “Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered.
“We honor and celebrate each and every one of you.
“Today is Mother’s Day in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Japan, and several countries across Europe.
“This is the first Mother’s Day for The Duchess of Sussex.
“Quote from “lands”: my mother was my first country; the first place I ever lived.”
As the first born son of a duke, Archie could have become Earl of Dumbarton – one of Harry’s subsidiary titles – or have been Lord Archie Mountbatten-Windsor. But his parents chose not to give him a royal title so he can live as normal a life as possible.
