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.

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.

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.
