New parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared a very personal photo of their royal baby boy Archie.

Celebrating Father's Day in the UK, the couple shared a sweet snap of the newborn wrapping his tiny hand around the Duke of Sussex's finger, while being cradled by the 34-year-old royal.

The sepia coloured photo also showed the six-week-old giving a peek-a-boo look out from his father’s arms - marking the first time we have seen Archie's face.

Alongside the candid picture was the message: "Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex!"

It is suspected that this personal photo may have been taken by the Duchess of Sussex inside their Frogmore Cottage home.
