Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's picture of baby Archie's feet on Mother's Day contains a subtle nod to Princess Diana
While Meghan couldn't celebrate Britain's Mother's Day in March, with Archie born in May, she is happily celebrating the occasion according to the US calendar
LONDON: Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, have released a photo of their newborn baby's feet to mark Meghan's first Mother's Day as a mom.
The image posted Sunday on Instagram showed Meghan's hand cradling the feet of her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, with a bed of spring flowers below serving as the background. The flowers seem to be forget-me-nots, Princess Diana's favorite flowers.
Recently, Prince Harry also admitted at a presentation for Invictus Games 2020 and he misses his late mother, Princess Diana, even more after the birth of baby Archie.
The text on the Instagram post 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."
The post also included lines from a poem called "Lands" by Nayyirah Waheed: "my/mother/was/my first country;/ the first place I ever lived."
Mother's Day was celebrated Sunday in the United States, Canada and many other countries. Britain's Mother's Day was on March 31 this year.
The new royal baby - Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born weighing 7lb 3oz at 5.26 am on Monday, May 6, as revealed by the official Instagram page of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Currently, there has been no courtesy title given to the new royal baby as his parents haven't chosen to give one yet. There is however a royal decree that was made over 100 years ago by the Queen's grandfather George V in 1917, which means that Archie will automatically gain HRH status, just like all the grandchildren on the direct male line of the sovereign.
