Winter weather is no match for the smallest Sussex! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just shared a new photo of baby Archie on vacation in Canada, and two things immediately spring to mind at the sight of the snapshot. First, baby Archie looks perfectly cozy in his cold-weather gear (That hat! Those booties!). And second, this father-son moment is precious enough to melt any heart.
On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex included the as-of-yet unseen photo in their year-end review video. In the photo, Harry is holding the couple’s 8-month-old son in front of gorgeous British Columbia scenery. It’s hard to pinpoint the best part of the pic: Archie’s smile, his oh-so-snuggly outfit or the way proud dad Harry is looking at the toddler. Upon sharing the video (and, in it, the new photo) to their Sussex Royal Instagram account, Harry and Meghan sent out their hopes for a happy 2020 to followers.
“Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and thanking you for your continued support! 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,” they wrote, adding, “Special thanks to Chris Martin and @Coldplay for allowing us to use one of their songs.”

Upon closer inspection, Harry and Meghan’s new photo of baby Archie gets even sweeter. According to Harper’s Bazaar, Archie’s tiny UGG boots were a gift for the then-future royal from Australia’s Sir Peter Cosgrove and his wife when the Duke and Duchess toured Australia in October 2018. Archie’s bobble hat was also a royal tour gift — it was made by a charitable women’s group called Make Give Love, which donates a hat for each hat purchase made. Harry and Meghan are reportedly such big fans that they’ve since ordered several more.
The rest of Harry and Meghan’s year-end video highlighted other major moments of 2019, including their first family tour of Africa, Meghan and Kate Middleton’s Wimbledon day-out, The WellChild Awards, baby Archie’s christening and more.
