Prince Harry and Meghan took to their official Instagram to “look back” on the previous year with a series of snapshots that marked memorable moments in their lives.

Among the several photos which were shown alongside Coldplay’s “Clocks” playing in the background, a sweet image of Prince Harry and Archie rocking matching cute knit caps took center stage.

Harry and Archie looked all shades of adorable as they posed outdoors with the ocean as a backdrop as the duke held on to his son affectionately.

"During the royal couple’s visit to New Zealand in October 2018, Meghan gifted one of the knit caps for an unborn Archie. After he outgrew his gift, the royal mom ordered two sizes up to ensure he always has one."

According to a royal source who spoke to PEOPLE Magazine, the candid father-son moment was taken by none other than the duchess over the family’s recent Thanksgiving holiday in November.

Also, Archie’s cute knit cap has a unique story to it that helps drive a cause dear to the hearts of Harry and Meghan. 

According to reports, Archie’s pom-pom hat is from Make Give Live, a social enterprise that runs community-based knitting groups in New Zealand. It was founded by mom Claire Conza.

During the royal couple’s visit to New Zealand in October 2018, Meghan gifted one of the knit caps for an unborn Archie. After he outgrew his gift, the royal mom ordered two sizes up to ensure he always has one. For every item purchased, one is donated to a Kiwi in need.

The Cocobear style hat reportedly retails for $33 and has since caused a backorder of items from the company since Archie was spotted wearing it.

The “Archie effect” has been at an all-time high this holiday as the little one once again stole the show in the family’s Christmas card, which was shared by the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust on Twitter.

As noted by Celebrity Insider, the 8-month-old showed off his adorable nature as he was seen crawling towards the camera while his parents were behind, watching him and looking joyful under the Christmas tree.

Per a PEOPLE report, the heartwarming holiday card was taken by Meghan’s close friend, actress Janina Gavankar.

Although the Sussex’s spent their holidays away from Sandringham and with Meghan’s mom, Doria, in Canada, they weren’t far away from the Queen’s heart as she reportedly gave her great-grandson a shoutout during her annual Christmas address. 

Her Majesty described Archie’s birth as one of the milestones of the previous year.
