Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers and expectant mothers.
In honor of today we are taking a look back at two years of Meghan and Archie’s mother/son relationship.
Archie’s big debut to the world took place on May 8, 2019. We caught our first glimpses of Meghan as a mom and the very happy couple with their new son.

Archie’s second Christmas was celebrated at the Sussexes home in Montecito, California. The family Christmas card for 2020 featured Harry, Meghan and Archie with their dogs, Guy and Pula. The photo was taken by Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.
A special announcement came on Valentine’s Day, February 2021, when the family announced that they are expecting their second child, a girl, sometime in the Summer.

Meghan and Harry Make Charitable Donation in Honor of Mother’s Day
by Rachel Burchfield
As they often do, Harry and Meghan marked another holiday with a charitable donation.
Today is Mother’s Day in the U.S. (U.K. Mother’s Day was observed on March 14 this year), and the Sussexes marked the holiday by donating to Harvest Home, “a Los Angeles-based organization that uplifts expectant mothers who are experiencing homelessness,” according to Archewell’s website.
“Harvest Home offers these women welcoming and comfortable housing and goes to great lengths to provide programs that help them start their mothering journey on a stronger foot, benefiting their families for generations to come.”
The site goes on to say that in L.A. alone, 5,000 women annually experience homelessness at some point during their pregnancy, and they are often turned away from shelters, at no fault of their own.
“At its extraordinary facility, Harvest Home meets the needs of these expectant mothers by providing them with community support, safe and accessible pregnancy resources, and trusted guidance in a nurturing setting – ingredients that are essential not just to physical health, but also mental well-being,” the site continued.
Harvest Home has a new facility in development to continue in its efforts to support women, according to Archewell.
