Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6. The 9 days old baby is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne. The little baby boy brought plenty of happiness to the royal family and to the new parents. Hence, the Duchess of Sussex got to celebrate her first Mother’s Day with her little bundle of joy. Even though Mother’s Day is celebrated on March 22, it is celebrated on May 12 in the USA. So, many people believed that Megan will celebrate it and pay homage to the special day, and so she did.
The Duchess of Sussex shared an amazing photo of her newborn baby’s tiny feet on her Instagram. The background of the photo featured stunning flowers but was something you probably didn’t notice in the post.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Share Photos of Their Family
Even though it was believed that Meghan and Prince Harry will be extremely private about their family and the baby boy, but that didn’t happen. In fact, the royal couple has shared several intimate photos on their Instagram account.
So, it was on Sunday, on Mother’s Day when they shared a post, which read, ‘Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered. We honour and celebrate each and every one of you.’
As May 12 is celebrated as Mother’s Day in the USA, Australia, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Japan, Kenya, and a number of countries around Europe, it was the first Mother’s Day for Meghan Markle.
The same Instagram post also included a quote from the poem ‘Lands’ by Nayyirah Waheed, which read,
my first country;
the first place i ever lived.’

The picture of baby Archie’s feet was amazing, but there is also a meaning behind the photo which actually makes a lot of sense. The flowers in the background weren’t randomly chosen, but they are known as forget-me-nots. This was Princess Diana’s favorite flower and choosing these flowers doesn’t seem to be a coincidence. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also decided to celebrate all lost but forever remembered mother with these flowers. So, they paid a tribute to Prince Harry’s mother with this image, which many fans and followers didn’t notice.
Prince Harry Misses Princess Diana
Prince Harry was only 12 years old when he lost his mother in a tragic accident. He took her death very hard and has missed her all his life, especially in those special moments, like when he got married and when he became a father. During the Invictus Games in 2019, Prince Harry opened up to former solider Dennis van der Stroon saying, ‘I realized a mother is a security and I realized that when I lost my mum, I lost that security and a son needs that.’
However, he knows that his mother is very proud of him, how much he has developed and grown as a person and how much he has achieved in his life. We are all certain that he will love his baby boy with all his heart and will be always there for him.
