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.
