Inside Meghan Markle & Prince Harry’s Home Life with Baby Archie

Happy birthday, Meghan Markle! It’s been a crazy decade for the Duchess of Sussex — she landed a starring role on Suits, met and married her husband Prince Harry, joined the royal family, gave birth to baby Archie, and left the royal family to relocate part-time back home to sunny California. To say Meghan, Harry, and Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’s lives have been a whirlwind would be an understatement, but no one handles tough times with more grace than the Sussex family, and we’re looking back at all their best family photos since lil’ Archie came around.

Meghan and Harry on e of the most glamorous royal couples we’ve ever seen, and they’ve had their share of heart-stopping moments since stepping into the royal spotlight. With baby Archie joining the family, they went from power couple to proud parents, with Archie’s big baby eyes and wiggly baby feet melting everything in his path. With their move back to Los Angeles and rededication to nonprofit work, their family values are shining through more than ever — and Meghan, Harry, and Archie are simply glowing with happiness.

Here are all the best family photos of Meghan, Harry, and royal baby Archie.

Archie Looks Back on 2019

Harry and Meghan’s Coldplay soundtrack for their look back on 2019 was very on-brand — as was the adorable opening photo of Harry and baby Archie bundled up in warm hats and coats in Canada.

Mom & Dad Throw It Back to Their Engagement

This is one of our favorite photos of the couple, and the same one the family used to celebrate their engagement anniversary two years later.

Archie Meets Grandpa Philip

While Archie and Philip may not be on the same continent any more, Harry has always found it important to make sure his dad gets to know the royal baby.

‪This evening The Duke and Duchess of Sussex accompanied Her Majesty The Queen and members of @TheRoyalFamily to the annual @RoyalBritishLegion Festival of Remembrance. This special event, which has taken place every year since 1923 at the @RoyalAlbertHall, commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.‬ • ‪This year’s Festival marked the 75th anniversary of a number of crucial battles of 1944, with a particular emphasis on the collaboration and friendship of the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies who fought them. A unique tribute was given to acknowledge those involved both past and present, culminating in a special parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944.‬ • ‪Their Royal Highnesses, who last year attended their first Festival of Remembrance together, were honoured to once again pay tribute to all casualties of war and remember those that have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.‬ ‪#FestivalOfRemembrance ‪#WeWillRememberThem‬ Photo © PA / Royal British Legion

About six months after Archie was born, Harry and Meghan were back in the full swing of royal events — but a change was brewing on the horizon.

Paying Tribute to Grandma Diana

“If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and uninhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalTourAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA

Harry was exceptionally close to late mom Princess Diana, and always makes a point of including her words and image when he talks about his vision for the world.

Okay, not quite off into the sunset. Both this look between them as they walk away from their first photoshoot with Archie is everything.

Happy Heritage Day South Africa! 🇿🇦 • Today we are celebrating the great diversity of cultures, beliefs and traditions that make up the rainbow nation.

When you’re a Duke and Duchess, you don’t call the sitter and have a date night for any old thing — but meeting Beyoncé and Jay-Z at The Lion King premiere just might be worth it.

Mom & Dad Support Invictus Games — Of Course

View this post on Instagram

Tonight, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the first of a two game series of the Major League Baseball #LondonSeries, in support of @WeAreInvictusGames. Tonight’s highly anticipated game between the #Yankees and #RedSox took place at London stadium, Olympic Park. The @WeAreInvictusGames, of which His Royal Highness is Founding Patron, has been selected as charity partner for the @MLB 2019 series. The Invictus Games Foundation is the international charity that oversees the development of the Invictus Games, an international adaptive multi-sport event in which wounded, injured or sick armed service personnel and veterans participate. It celebrates the power of sport in recovery and how it can help, physically or psychologically, those suffering from injuries or illness. The word ‘invictus’ means ‘unconquered’ – it embodies the fighting spirit of the competitors. As part of the partnership, the Invictus Games Foundation have a team participating in London’s #Softball60, the social softball series built for the city and targeted to introduce the sport to new audiences and demonstrate that it is an inclusive sport. On this #ArmedForcesDay, tonight’s event was also a chance for Their Royal Highnesses to shine a light on the men and women here in the UK and around the world who have sacrificed so much for their country.

Baby Archie’s Arrival Gift

Just one week ago, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex asked that you kindly consider supporting various organisations around the world in lieu of sending gifts for the upcoming arrival of their first born. Not only did many of you lend your support, you took action. Their Royal Highnesses wanted you to know the impact of your support – the direct effect your donation, energy, and action made! YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much. YOUR IMPACT: @thelunchboxfund will now be able to provide a minimum of 100,000 additional hot nutritionally fortified meals to children in dire need across South Africa @littlevillagehq received donations from all over the world (from UAE to Hong Kong and the US), they’ve increased their monthly donors, had a surge in volunteer applications, and re-energized their hard working team of 200+ staff and volunteers @wellchild can now provide 300+ additional hours of specialist care by a Well Child Nurse for a child with serious health needs, allowing families to stay together at home vs in hospital @Baby2Baby have received over 5,000 products to disperse to children in need, including cribs, books, backpacks, diapers and have received monetary donations from around the globe – from Guadalajara to Italy. You made this happen. Thank you.

Knowing people would want to send gifts ahead of Archie’s arrival, Meghan asked that they support various nonprofit organizations instead — then let them know just how much good those donations had done.
