Happy Father's Day, Prince Harry!
The Duke of Sussex made hearts stop with an adorable new social media post to mark the occasion of Father's Day. The Duke, who is celebrating his first Father's Day holiday with his son this year shared an adorable picture of the toddler.
In an Instagram post on Sunday, June 16, a tiny Archie could be seen clutching his father's finger with his tiny hand as Prince Harry holds him in a loving embrace. The caption read: "Happy Father's Day! And wishing a very special first Father's Day to The Duke of Sussex."
Prince Harry is marking his first Father's Day as a dad and is expected to celebrate privately at home in Windsor. There's no doubt that he and Meghan have special plans for the milestone with their son Archie, who is now almost six weeks old.
On the occasion of Mother's Day, the Duke and Duchess had shared a beautiful close-up photo of Archie's tiny feet on Instagram.
Not only did they honor the mother-son bond between Meghan and Archie, the photo also boasted a bed of spring flowers in the background. The flowers seemed to be forget-me-nots—which were Princess Diana's favorite flowers—which served as a heartwarming tribute to Prince Harry's late mother.
"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 caption read. "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."
The caption concluded with a poignant quote from 'Lands' by author Nayyirah Waheed. "My mother was my first country; the first place I ever lived," it read.
Harry and Meghan had also sweetly paid tribute to Princess Diana by mentioning mothers "lost but forever remembered".
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 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, as per reports, means that Archie will automatically gain HRH status, just like all the grandchildren on the direct male line of the sovereign.
