Father’s Day is a momentous day for father figures, but especially so for first time dads. To celebrate, Meghan Markle shared the sweetest photo of Prince Harry and his month-old son, Archie Harrison, on their official Instagram account.
In the never-before-seen photo, Prince Harry is holding his son, with baby Archie’s tiny hands grasping onto his father’s finger. And unlike the photo that was shared for Mother’s Day or the blown-up paparazzi pictures printed in tabloids, you can actually see his adorable face in this one. Those eyes!
“Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex!” the caption read.
The post has over 2 million likes and a slew of comments from royal fans, with the majority of folks congratulating 34-year-old Prince Harry on his first Father’s Day. “This is truly a beautiful and touching picture!,” one fan wrote. “From what I can see Harry and Meghan are amazing parents! Archie is so lucky to have parents who love him, care for him and protect him!♥️♥️♥️ Happy father’s day everyone!”
Others point out how much baby Archie already resembles his dad. “Such a sweet picture of Prince Harry and his son Archie, he looks like his daddy,” one comment read. “Happy Father’s Day Prince Harry.”
It’s clear from the super cozy photo that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are leaning comfortable into parenthood. Prince Harry’s good friend, Nacho Figueras, told Elle that the Duke is a “natural” at fatherhood. Figueras continued: “He knows what to do. He’s already an amazing father.”
