While part of the infant's face is hidden behind Harry's hand, Archie does appear to be looking toward the camera - and, you guys, that face.

The Duke of Sussex was alleged to have made the remark as it became obvious the pair's six-month whirlwind romance was serious.

The Royal couple released the photo on their hugely popular Instagram page, with the pair wishing followers a Happy Father's Day - which is celebrated on Sunday in the United Kingdom and in the US. Insiders previously told The Sun that various royals voiced concerns but that "Harry stood up for Meghan very forcibly". At that time, the boy was only two days old.

Philip, who is rumoured to share a close bond with the young prince, made a surprise appearance at the Royal Wedding in May a year ago, despite recovering from a hip operation at the time. "There were moments when he feared he would never become a dad", Nicholl shared.

Archie is the Queen's eighth great-grandchild.

The Duke said at Archie's first photocall at Windsor Castle: "It's great".

According to reports, the Duke of Edinburgh also spoke to his grandson about his decision to marry an actress.

Meanwhile, Prince William has marked Father's Day by sharing a gorgeous picture with his son Louis and another with his father, Prince Charles, but his other two children are not featured.

Archie is expected to follow royal tradition by wearing a replica of the Honiton lace christening gown commissioned by Queen Victoria for the baptism of her first child Princess Victoria in 1841. "The second image was taken in 1972 and features The Duke of York and The Earl of Wessex".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son will soon be baptised at the same church where his parents were married.

"To Dads everywhere, have a wonderful Father's Day", the caption read. "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".
