Why this weekend will be a special one for Prince Harry
The Duke of Sussex will be celebrating an exciting first this weekend, which is Father’s Day in the UK.
Father’s Day falls on Sunday June 16 and it will be Prince Harry’s first Father’s Day as a dad, as son Archie was born on May 6.
Prince Harry, 34, is expected to mark the occasion with a social media post on the couple’s royal Instagram account @sussexroyal.
This will be giving the world a rare glimpse of Archie since the Duchess of Sussex shared a photo of his feet on May 12, which is Mother’s Day in the US.
It’s clear that Prince Harry is very thrilled to be a father, based off this sweet video he shared on their Instagram when Archie was first born.View this post on Instagram
