Prince Harry is celebrating his first ever father’s day with Instagram followers by sharing an extremely cute picture of baby Archie.


The 34-year-old royal uploaded a sweet, black and white picture which shows him cradling his newborn son in his arms, wedding band shining at the centre.

Tiny Archie – or to give him his full title, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – can be seen gripping his dad’s finger while gazing into the camera with his huge eyes. In short, it’s enough to make the most un-parentally inclined among us feel a bit broody.

The caption reads:

It is unclear who exactly the photographer is. The credit has been given as ‘SussexRoyal’, the picture could well have been taken by Meghan Markle herself.

Followers of the Sussex Royal Instagram account promptly melted at the sight of proud dad Harry enjoying quality time with Archie, describing the pic as ‘the cutest’ and ‘perfectly perfect’.

One Royal fan squealed, ‘CAN YOU HEAR ME CRYING’, while another said, ‘I am beyond happy for Harry! I feel like he’s been longing for this season of his life for years’.

We’ve seen precious little of young Archie since his birth on May 6, with his parents sharing occasional pics on Instagram to celebrate important moments.

On International Mother’s Day, May 12, the parents shared a beautiful photograph of new mum Meghan holding Archie’s itty-bitty feet.

The caption included a touching quote from Lands, a poem by writer Nayyirah Waheed:


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.

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.

Quote from “lands” by @nayyirah.waheed:
my first country;
the first place i ever lived.

It is believed Archie will be christened this summer, when we will hopefully be treated to more pictures of the royal cutey.

According to The Sunday Times, Archie will be baptised at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor in early July, the same place where his parents were wed.

Happy Father’s Day to Prince Harry. Hopefully Archie will have remembered to pick up a nice card for his daddy in between royal nap-times and cuddles.
