Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have released a photo of their newborn baby's feet to mark Mother's Day in the US.

The image posted yesterday on Instagram showed American-born Meghan's hand cradling the feet of her son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, with a bed of spring flowers below serving as the background.

The text reads: "Paying tribute to all mothers today - past, present, mothers-to-be, and those lost but forever remembered. We honour and celebrate each and every one of you."

The post also included lines from a poem called 'Lands' by Nayyirah Waheed: "my/mother/was/my first country;/ the first place I ever lived."
