Duchess Meghan celebrates her first Mother’s Day with new photo of baby Archie

Though the UK celebrates Mother’s Day in March, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is still an American at heart.

An Instagram account she shares with husband Prince Harry released a sweet new photo of the newborn royal as the US, along with Canada, Australia and several other countries, celebrated Mother’s Day on Sunday.

The duchess, 37, gave birth a week ago to her first child, Archie Harrison Mountbattan-Windsor.

“Paying tribute to all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered,” the caption reads. “We honor and celebrate each and every one of you.”

In the photo, baby Archie appears to be wrapped in a white blanket and held by his mom. The post also included a quote from Nayyirah Waheed’s poem “lands.”

Some people speculated that the photo was a nod to Archie’s late grandmother, Princess Diana, because forget-me-nots, which were Diana’s favorite flowers, are pictured in the background.

Meghan’s bridal bouquet, which was hand-picked by Prince Harry, also included forget-me-nots.

Less Than Compelling

Usually us curmudgeons like to go on and on about how sports, music and movies were better in “our day”.  I think that you can add Congressional hearings to that list as well.  That’s what I was thinking during both the James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions testimony the last couple of weeks.  While…

Un-settling the Science

While James Comey was sucking up all the oxygen in the room, there was a pretty major science announcement last week.  It turns out that the human species might be much older than we originally thought.  Fossils found in Morocco place our earliest ancestors on the planet as far back as 350-thousand years ago.  Until…

Open Week

Welcome to US Open week here in Wisconsin.  Many of you will be venturing down to Erin (or Hartford or Richfield–I’ve seen all three used to describe the location of the course in stories) for practice rounds the next three days–or for the competitive rounds Thursday through Sunday (and possibly Monday–more on that later).  Here…
