In honour of Mother’s Day, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared an poignant photo of their new baby Archie on Instagram.

Meghan Markle’s hand can be seen holding Archie’s little feet, in front of a backdrop of flowers. However, royal commentator Roya Nikkhah has pointed out the significance of the flowers featured in Meghan and Harry’s Mother’s Day portrait of Archie.

She tweeted, “To mark Mother’s Day in the US, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released this picture of baby Archie’s feet against a backdrop of forget-me-knots, Diana, Princess of Wales’s favourite flowers. Meghan is spending her first US Mother’s Day as a new mother with her mother Doria”. 

It comes after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a touching tribute to Diana by honouring mothers “lost but forever remembered”.
