There might have been an outright war between the Sussexes and the Monarchy, but the one member Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always put on the highest pedestal is none other than the Duke’s mother, Princess Diana. Made evident from their Bombshell Netflix Docuseries and the memoir as well, the estranged couple has always looked up to the former Princess of Wales with all respect and gratitude.
Openly expressing the same, the couple never lets go of the slightest of chances to honor Princess Diana. Be it their firstborn announcement or anything important associated with their life, they never take a chance to keep aside their Spencer family.
Evidence of the same can be dated back to the time when their eldest son Archie stepped into the living world in the year, 2019 on the 6th of May. Although they initially held back from making the announcement until two days following Archie’s birth, their official statement gave a heartwarming gesture to Princess Diana and her family. They evidently mentioned her siblings and the remnant of her family members in the sweet message of Archie’s birth.

What is unique about the message sent by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?
As reported by Unilad, this has not been an official practice in the royal household. Supporting facts can be noted from the time Princess Kate Middleton gave birth to all three Wales children. None of the official statements had any mention of Prince William’s maternal family. Nonetheless, there were times when the Duke of Cambridge confessed to keeping his mother’s memory alive through his own ways.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the other hand were in fact seen having a gorgeous portrait of Princess Diana in their Montecito abode. In some heartwarming behind-the-scenes moments, Prince Harry would record while his wife, Meghan Markle would let Archie know whose grandson he actually is.
