They wrote in the caption of the image, "Happy Father's Day! and wishing a very special first Father's Day to the Duke of Sussex".

The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle made her first public appearance since the birth of her baby Archie at the Trooping the Colour ceremony for Queen Elizabeth II.

It's not the first time the Queen has been forced to miss one of her great-grandson's christenings, as in July 2018 the Monarch and her husband, Prince Philip, were nowhere to be seen when Prince Louis was being christened.

There's no question the event would be a glamorous affair, especially considering Meghan Markle's ties to Hollywood, as well as Prince Harry's connection to the aristocracy of the United Kingdom.

The baby boy is seventh in line to the British throne.

Meghan said of her husband and her son: "It's magic, it's pretty unbelievable".

Since then, we've gotten small glimpses of the little one, including one this weekend to celebrate Father's Day. The picture showed Archie with his hand curled around Prince Harry's finger, peering at the camera.

Smitten Harry introduced Archie to the world alongside proud mother Meghan when the newest addition to the Royal Family was just two days old.

Archie's uncle and aunt, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are expected to attend but Her Majesty the Queen will be absent, on other duties.

It was also revealed earlier this year that Prince Harry cut off his good friend Tom Inskip after he advised him not to marry the former Suits star.

However, as the son of a major Royal Family member, he is expected to take a similar path to his cousins. The monarch attended the christenings of Prince George and Princess Charlotte in 2013 and 2015, but missed Prince Louis' baptism past year.

Baby Archie meets The Queen and Prince Philip at Windsor Castle. "And I think what was intended as well-meaning, brotherly concern and a bit of advice went down quite badly with Harry, who felt that William wasn't being as supportive as he might've been".
