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.

The photo is accompanied with a caption paying tribute to “all mothers today – past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered.”
Lines from Nayyirah Waheem’s poem “Lands” are also included in the caption.
The flowers making up the background of the photo can be seen as a tribute to Harry’s late mother Princess Diana, who was known to love forget-me-nots.
Markle and Harry opted not to do a traditional photo call outside of the hospital when the baby was born, instead holding one at Windsor Castle two days later.
The couple have decided not to use a courtesy title for Archie at this time, though it looks like he will receive a “prince” title once Prince Charles becomes king.
