Prince Harry + Meghan Markle celebrate New Year's Eve with new photo of Baby Archie
Sussex Riyal

This past year was quite a memorable one for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. In 2019 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle became parents. And as we head into 2020 it is clear that one adorable little face was the focal point of their year and will be again in 2020.

On New Year's Eve Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released a new photo of Baby Archie as part of an Instagram year in review post. The recent candid picture

"Wishing you all a very happy new year and thanking you all for your continued support!" the video's caption reads.


The caption of the video (set to Coldplay's "Clocks") continues: "We've loved meeting so many of you from around the world and can't wait to meet many more of you next year. We hope 2020 brings each of you health and continued happiness."

According to royal reporter Omid Scobie, the cover image of Archie and Prince Harry was taken during the family's recent time in Canada.

This is not the first image of adorable Archie taken during the family's Christmas vacation in North America. Earlier this month the couple's Christmas card was emailed to friends (according to the BBC, family got hard copies—the Queen probably isn't into email cards) and it featured a black and white photo for the holiday greeting card shows little Archie crawling towards the camera while his parents sit in front of a Christmas tree. It was taken by the Duchess' friend, actress Janina Gavankar.

The Christmas card is as adorable as you would expect.

Royal watchers on Instagram were quick to point out the similarities between Archie's baby pictures and his parents'...and he looks so much like both of them.

There are striking similarities between Archie and his dad, above, and his mama's baby pic, below.

The trio spent Christmas in Canada this year, which makes sense considering how long Markle lived there while shooting suits. Some of her best friends still live in the Toronto area, but the new photo suggests (as do newspaper reports) that the royal trio spent some time on the other coast, in British Columbia.

    The one thing your family needs to practice gratitude

    And a tradition you'll want to keep for years.

    Gracious Gobbler

    I think I can speak for well, basically everyone on planet earth when I say things have been a bit stressful lately. Juggling virtual school, work and the weight of worry about all the things, it's increasingly difficult to take even a moment to be grateful and positive these days. It's far easier to fall into a grump cycle, nagging my kids for all the things they didn't do (after being asked nine times), snapping at their bickering and never really acknowledging the good stuff.

    But the truth is, gratitude and appreciation is the kind of medicine we need now more than ever—and not just because the season is upon us. For one thing, practicing gratitude is a scientifically proven way to boost our happiness, health and relationships. More importantly, we need to ensure we're cultivating it in our children even when things are challenging. Especially when things are challenging.

    I'm ready to crank the thankfulness up a few dozen notches and reboot our family's gratitude game so we can usher out 2020 on a fresh note. So, I've called in some reinforcements.

    Enter: the Gracious Gobbler.

    Sorry, you can’t meet our baby yet

    Thank you for understanding. ❤️

    In just over three weeks, we will become parents. From then on, our hearts will live outside of our bodies. We will finally understand what everyone tells you about bringing a child into the world.

    Lately, the range of emotions and hormones has left me feeling nothing short of my new favorite mom word, "hormotional." I'm sure that's normal though, and something most people start to feel as everything suddenly becomes real.

    Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.


    I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.
