Prince Harry and Meghan have paid tribute to all mothers as the Duchess of Sussex's native United States, New Zealand and other countries celebrated Mother's Day.

The couple posted a picture of baby Archie's feet on their official Instagram account, writing: "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.

It is Meghan's first Mother's Day. Meghan gave birth in the early hours of Monday morning to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, leaving his father, Queen Elizabeth's grandson, and royal fans across the world enthralled. He is seventh in line to the British throne.

Britain celebrates Mother's Day on March 22, but the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, Japan, and several countries across Europe and others mark it on the second Sunday in May.

The couple also quoted from the poem Lands by Nayyirah Waheed: "My mother was my first country; The first place I ever lived."
