It's just beautiful...

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced little Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world, Prince Harry made one subtle but very definite nod to the memory of his late mother, Princes Diana. 

The 37-year-old Prince and his wife, Meghan, posed for photos with little Archie smiling and cooing over their adorable new child in the grounds of Windsor Castle. 

But even though the surroundings were formal and royal, there was one very special secret tribute it was difficult to spot.

At the photo call, Prince Harry was spotted wearing a beaded bracelet, the only relaxed thing about the look of Harry who wore a light grey suit was the special bracelet he wore on his right wrist.

The bracelet, which Harry has been wearing for more than 20 years, is believed to be from a 1997 trip to Africa that Charles took both boys on to 'get away from it all' shortly after their mum, Princess Diana, died.

An emotional Harry once opened up about the trip, and told Town And Country magazine:

'I first came [to Africa] in 1997, straight after my mum died. My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags – we were going to Africa to get away from it all.'

As he held his son so the cameras could see little Archie, that bracelet was front and centre for all to see. 

This isn't the only way the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have paid a subtle ttribute to Harry's mum Diana during the birth of little Archie. 

When the birth announcement appeared on Monday, 6 May 2019 it included the names of Diana's siblings Lady Jane Fellowes, 62, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, 64, and Earl Spencer and Earl Spencer, 54, who were informed and said to be 'delighted' by the news.
