Duchess Meghan celebrates her first Mother’s Day with new photo of baby Archie
(CNN) — Though the UK celebrates Mother’s Day in March, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is still an American at heart.
An Instagram account she shares with husband Prince Harry released a sweet new photo of the newborn royal as the US, along with Canada, Australia and several other countries, celebrated Mother’s Day on Sunday.
The duchess, 37, gave birth a week ago to her first child, Archie Harrison Mountbattan-Windsor.
“Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered,” the caption reads. “We honor and celebrate each and every one of you.”
In the photo, baby Archie appears to be wrapped in a white blanket and held by his mom. The post also included a quote from Nayyirah Waheed’s poem “lands.”
Some people speculated that the photo was a nod to Archie’s late grandmother, Princess Diana, because forget-me-nots, which were Diana’s favorite flowers, are pictured in the background.
Meghan’s bridal bouquet, which was hand-picked by Prince Harry, also included forget-me-nots.
