The Mother’s Day post also features a special poem from writer Nayyirah Waheed. Of course, this is a sweet reminder of how Meghan nurtured Archie for nine months in her belly, but perhaps it also has something to do with questions surrounding the baby’s citizenship. With some wondering if he will be considered British or American, maybe the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to show that his identity goes beyond his country of origin. For now, they just want to celebrate the royal nugget for who he is: their son.

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.

Meghan Markle, 37, is celebrating her first Mother’s Day since giving birth to son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor! On Sunday, she and Prince Harry, 34, posted an adorable new photo of baby Archie’s teeny-tiny foot being softly cradled by Meghan’s hand. “Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered,” the royal duo captioned the heartwarming snap. “We honor and celebrate each and every one of you.”
Meghan and Harry welcomed Archie on May 6. Shortly after, the first-time parents opened up about their new bundle of joy during a press appearance. “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing,” Meghan said. “I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy. He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm and he’s just been a dream, so it’s been a special couple days.” No wonder Archie looks so relaxed with his cute little legs crossed! Happy Mother’s Day, duchess!
