Much like the next Sussex fan, I adore baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Today, Archie is celebrating his first birthday, and to pay homage to his first year on Mother Earth, we've put together a collection of photos of the little tot that will make the coldest of hearts melt from the cuteness. From his first royal sighting with his parents to meeting Archbishop Desmond Tutu in South Africa, see the most precious pictures of Archie, ahead. Here's to another year of heartwarming moments.
Just two days after Archie's birth, we were given a glimpse (and I mean a glimpse) of the newest royal baby.
I have never wanted to squeeze someone's nose more than when I first saw baby Archie in this photo.
