Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom may have been Mar. 22, but new mama Meghan Markle still wished mothers all over the world a joyous day in a sweet Instagram post this weekend.

Even though the world got a glimpse of Archie Harrison Mountbattan-Windsor last week during a much-anticipated press appearance, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex shared a new type of pic this time. The proud parents posted a sweet photo of the baby’s feet cradled in his loving mother’s hand.

Along with the pic, the pair posted well wishes for the holiday and a quote from the poem “lands” by Nayyirah Waheed.

While Prince Harry didn’t directly reference his own mother, the forget-me-nots seen in the photo’s background are a possible reference to Princess Diana. The delicate flowers, which were also in Markle’s bridal bouquet, were Diana’s favorite.
