The UK may have already celebrated their Mother’s Day earlier this year, but it certainly hasn’t stop Duchess Meghan from marking special days that are celebrated in her home country, the US, also.

In an adorable post on the official Sussex Royal Instagram page, Meghan has shared a cute image of little Archie’s feet, cradled in her hands, to mark her first Mother’s Day.

And, if that wasn’t heartwarming enough, the post also had a poignant tribute to little Archie’s late grandmother, Princess Diana, by featuring a patch of forget-me-not flowers in the background, which are known to have been one of Princess Diana’s favourite flowers.

“Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered,” the post began.

“We honour 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,” the post continues, followed by a quote from the poem Lands, by Nayyirah Waheed:




my first country;

the first place i ever lived.”

Last week, during a day trip to The Netherlands to launch the one-year countdown to the 2020 Invictus Games, Prince Harry opened up about how little Archie’s birth has made him feel the loss of his late mother even more.

Opening up to a former soldier, Dennis van der Stroon, during a bike ride around the park at The Hague, Dennis told People, “I told Harry about my mother and we talked about our shared experience of losing my mum.

“He said missing a mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother.”

Adding: “He said he meets a lot of people in his work who have lost a mother, father, sister, brother or relatives and when he hears their story, as he heard my story, he said he doesn’t feel so alone.”

Last week was a big and exciting week for the Sussexes, who welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, into the world in the early hours of May 6.

Fronting the media outside Windsor to announce the birth, Prince Harry looked incredibly excited and two days later the world got the first glimpse of the little royal, during a quick press call at St George’s Hall at Windsor.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan also celebrate their first wedding anniversary this week, on May 19.
