Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is only just coming up on six weeks old, but he’s already endeared himself to pretty much everyone—to the point where there were stories only 11 days after his birth about the precocious infant repairing the alleged Sussex-Cambridge rift. And because the royals know that no one can turn down an adorable pic of Baby Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle decided to gift us on Sunday (June 16) with a new photo of him in honor of Father’s Day—a milestone one for them, as it’s Harry’s first.
The photo, which was posted to the @sussexroyal Instagram account, shows little Archie in Prince Harry’s arms. “Happy Father’s Day!” the caption read. “And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex.”
It’s the first close-up shot of Archie’s little face, reports Metro, and suffice it to say: He’s adorable. Check out those little fingers wrapping around Harry’s hand:
In May, Meghan and Harry shared a photo of Archie for Mother’s Day that featured his baby toes against a background of blue forget-me-nots—the favorite flower of his grandmother, Princess Diana.
The Sussexes aren’t the only ones marking the family’s first Father’s Day, either: A group of Prince Harry’s fans have thrown him a virtual baby shower. Like #GlobalBabySussexShower, which raised money for some of the royals’ favorite charities in honor of Archie’s impending birth, this round of fans’ spirited fundraising—dubbed #HappyFathersDayPrinceHarry—will benefit some of the charitable causes Harry supports.
It’s pretty cool that the new parents could celebrate both Mother’s and Father’s Day so soon after their little one’s birth. Happy Father’s Day, Harry!
