Father’s Day is a holiday used to honor fathers and fatherhood. The special day pays tribute to the many ways in which fathers have influenced our society for the better. The holiday is widely celebrated in the Western world and acknowledged by the masses. One notable person celebrating the holiday this year is none other than Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. The former actress paid tribute to her husband, Prince Harry, in a very sweet way in celebration of his very first Father’s Day. She also gave her many fans a special treat by sharing a picture of their new one-month-old bundle of joy, royal baby, Archie.
Though Markle and Prince Harry haven’t been parents for long, they seem to have taken to parenthood like a fish takes to water. Prince Harry has been especially vocal about how much he loves being a father. Just days after Archie was born, Prince Harry couldn’t stop gushing about his new baby. “It’s only been what, two and a half days, three days? But we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy to spend some precious times with him as he slowly starts to grow up.” the Prince said in an interview.
Close friends of the couple also seem to sing Prince Harry’s praises about his parenting skills. Nacho Figueras, a close and personal friend to Prince Harry, has gushed to the media numerous times about how happy Prince Harry is to be embracing his new role as a father. “He seems to be very happy. I think this is a very exciting part of his life. He was ready for it and he is loving it.” Figueras said of his longtime friend.
Figueras then went on to state how impressed he was with the Duke’s natural parenting abilities. “The Duke is the kind of father I always imagined he would be. He has always had a great love for children and a great understanding of them. I noticed that becoming a father has influenced him and his dedication and love for the project is now stronger than ever. The Duke is very happy with this stage of his life and I believe he is going to enjoy it very much” Figueras told the media.
It seems that by all appearances, Prince Harry is exactly that type of father who deserves to be celebrated on Father’s Day. Meghan Markle seems to agree with this sentiment and posted a very sweet image of her husband and son early Sunday morning. The image shows an inquisitive baby Archie staring intelligently at the camera as he grips firmly on to Prince Harry’s finger. The caption for the beautiful image reads, “Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex!”
Happy Father’s Day
This was certainly a sweet message for the Meghan Markle to share with fans. Particularly because, despite the initial photoshoot that happened just days after his birth, baby Archie has been kept out of the spotlight. We hope that the family is enjoying their alone time together, and we wish Prince Harry and fathers everywhere a healthy and happy Father’s Day.
