Just shy of being one week old, Meghan Markle celebrated her first Mother’s Day as a mother herself after giving birth to her and Prince Harry’s first child.

On May 6, as Dearly previously reported, Markle gave birth to a son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

In her first interview since becoming a mom, Markle described her then two-day-old son as having “the sweetest temperament and being really calm,” adding:

“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I mean I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.”

On Mother’s Day, Markle shared another photo of her son, this time just of his little toes, on Instagram.

The post paid tribute to “all mothers — past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered,” including Archie’s grandmother and Prince Harry’s mom, Princess Diana:

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.

the first place i ever lived.

As eagle-eyed fans spotted in the background, the picture was taken over top Princess Diana’s favorite flowers, Forget-Me-Nots.

Fans gushed over the sweet way the new parents honored Diana:

We remember, Harry!! And what a beautiful picture to honor your beautiful Mother!!!! Our hearts reach out to you today as well as all of your “firsts” without her here. what a very sweet way to show your love. Thank you!! And a very special Happy 1st Mother’s Day Meghan! Sooo, soooo cute!

what a beautiful photo of those tiny little feet, and what a sweet tribute to Princess Diana. She would be so proud of her sons choice of wife. She was never one to stay on the “main road”

Diana would be so proud. Happy Mother’s Day! What a beautiful baby and family you have.

Forget-Me-Nots were also a part of Meghan and Harry’s wedding day in 2018.
