Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Post Instagram Video With Baby Archie and New Year Message

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, posted to Instagram a reflective video looking back on their 2019—which included the birth of Archie, their first child together—to mark the new year.

Set to the Coldplay song "Clocks," the Instagram video is a montage of footage and images of the trio from the past year as they toured around conducting their official royal duties as well as personal family moments, including introducing Archie to the world back in May.

There was also a previously unseen picture of Archie, who is wrapped up warm in a knitted beanie hat and fur-lined boots and held by his father Prince Harry as they stand next to a lake.

"Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and thanking you for your continued support! We've loved meeting so many of you from around the world and can't wait to meet many more of you next year," said a message from the royal couple. "We hope 2020 brings each of you health and continued happiness."

Archie got a mention in Queen Elizabeth II's annual Christmas message when she talked about welcoming him to the family.

"Two hundred years since the birth of my great great grandmother Queen Victoria, Prince Philip and I have been delighted to welcome our eighth great grandchild into our family," the queen said during her message.

"Of course at the heart of the Christmas story, lies the birth of a child. A seemingly small and insignificant step overlooked by many in Bethlehem. But in time, through his teaching and by his example, Jesus Christ would show that in small steps, taken in faith and hope can overcome long-held differences and deep-seated divisions and bring harmony and understanding."

In a documentary aired on the U.K.'s ITV network back in October, the Duchess of Sussex spoke candidly with journalist Tom Bradby about the pressure of pregnancy under the media spotlight.

"Any woman, especially when they're pregnant, you're really vulnerable," said Markle. "So that was made really challenging. And when you have a newborn... it's a lot. You add this on top of being a new mom or trying to be a newlywed." Markle thanked Bradby for asking if she's OK, saying, "Not many people have asked if I'm OK."

She also spoke of the difficulty in trying to cope with scrutiny from the tabloid media: "It's not enough just to survive something. That's not the point of life. You've got to thrive. You've got to be happy...I really tried to adopt this British sensibility of a stiff upper lip. I tried. I really tried. But I think that what that does internally is probably really damaging."
