While Sunday was Mother's Day in Australia and a host of other countries including the US, New Zealand and Canada, the United Kingdom won't celebrate it again until 22 March next year.

'The Duchess's mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage, ' the announcement read. Quote from "lands": my mother was my first country; the first place i ever lived.

The public has only seen a few glimpses of the royal baby, this photo of Markle cradling her son's arches being one of them.

Mike Tindall continued, revealing that Archie will be joining a growing group of young royal pals.


With Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's May 6 birth, he came just in time for new mom Meghan Markle to celebrate her very first Mother's Day on May 12 alongside husband Prince Harry. But baby Archie will have to wait a while before he is given the title of "Prince".

According to Hello! while visiting Oxford Children's Hospital on Tuesday, Prince Harry chatted with a mother from Aylesbury, Ida Scullard, about her 10-week-old daughter. Their most recent post, published Sunday, is in honor of Mother's Day and includes a snap of Archie's feet.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry remembered Princess Diana with their post for Mother's Day in more way than one.

While the message was a universal tribute to mothers, it will also be interpreted as a reference to Harry's mother Diana, who died in 1997.


Meghan decided against the traditional immediate post-birth photo opportunity with her newborn, and the couple has in the past expressed deep misgivings about intrusive press coverage, despite often courting the media's attention.

"He has the sweetest temperament", she added.

Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, told Express that the arrival of Markle and Prince Harry's son has already shifted the "Suits" alum's image as a royal family outcast, a bridezilla, and as someone who is hard to work with.
