CLOSE

This year was a big year for Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry, but no moment was bigger than the royal couple welcoming their first child together, Archie.

And as 2019 comes to a close, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are offering up another look at their nearly 8-month-old son by way of a new sweet picture. 

On Tuesday, the royals shared a photo of Archie resting snugly in Harry’s arms, where the father-son duo matched in winter wear in front of a body of water.

The snapshot was a part of a year-in-review video shared on the Sussex’s official Instagram account, featuring highlights from their year, including Archie’s christening, their African tour, meeting Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the European “Lion King” premiere, Remembrance Day and more.

“Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and thanking you for your continued support!” the royals captioned the highlight video. “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.”

Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry welcomed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor – on May 6. They introduced him to the world days later at Windsor Castle, posing for photos and video.

The photo is the latest look at Archie, who Duchess Meghan and Prince Harry tend to shield from the public eye. He was the star of the family’s Christmas card, looking into the camera as his parents laugh in the background under a twinkling Christmas tree.  

The family of three spent some “private time” in Canada over the Christmas holidays.
