Meghan Markle has paid tribute to mothers across the world on Mother's Day, which is celebrated in the US among other countries today.

The new mum took to the official Sussex Royal Instagram account to share an adorable photo of baby Archie's feet cupped in her palm  against a backdrop of forget-me-knots alongside her message.

"Paying tribute to all mothers today - past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered," it began.

"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 message also included a quote from Nayyirah Waheed's Lands: "My mother was my first cotnry; the first place I ever lived."

Mother's Day was celebrated in Ireland and the UK on March 31st this year.

Meghan is spending her first Mother's Day with her own mother Doria Ragland who has been with her at Frogmore Cottage for the past month ahead of her grandson's arrival.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on Monday at 5.26am weighing 7lb 3oz and was introduced to the public by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Wednesday at St George's Hall in Windsor Castle.

"It's magic, it's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy," Meghan said at the time.

Harry took a break from parenting on Saturday to join the Queen at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on Saturday although he did not travel too far as it was held on the grounds of Winsor Castle.
