Meghan Markle's sweet photo of baby Archie on Mother's Day




The Duchess of Sussex has shared an adorable photo of her newborn baby's feet to mark Mother's Day in the US.

Meghan Markle posted the picture on the House of Sussex's official Instagram page on Sunday afternoon.

It shows the Duchess's hand cradling the tiny bare feet of baby Archie, who was born six days ago.

It is thought the photo was taken at Frogmore Cottage, the Sussex’s Windsor home in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Princess Diana's favourite flower - forget me nots - can be seen in the background.

The 37-year-old also took the time to pay a tribute to mothers across the word.

"Paying tribute to all mothers today - past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered," the royal wrote.


"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."

Meghan went on to quote from Nayyirah Waheed's poem 'Lands': "My mother was my first country, the first place I ever lived."

Not only is she spending her first mother's day with Baby Sussex, her mum Doria Ragland is by her daughter's side.

The Los Angeles-based social worker and yoga instructor has been staying with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex since April.

When Archie was introduced to the world Meghan confirmed that her mum was playing a huge part in the process.

Shortly after Meghan and Harry's first post-birth interview, Doria was on hand to help introduce the baby to his great-grandmother the Queen.


On Saturday the Duke of Sussex took a break from parenting to join the Queen at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The Duchess described her son as having the "sweetest temperament", while a delighted duke called him "our own little bundle of joy".

Meghan is likely to still have the company of her mother Doria Ragland at the couple's Frogmore Cottage home which is near to the Queen's Windsor Castle residence.
