Royal watchers around the world were overjoyed when Prince Harry released a new photo of his and Meghan Markle's 6-week-old son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on Father's Day.

Prince Harry, 34, showed off his new son in a photo on the official Instagram page of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Sunday.

The photo shows Archie gripping his dad's finger while staring intently at his mom, Meghan Markle, who took the snapshot.

Concerned royal watchers immediately remarked on how small Archie appeared to be at 6 weeks. He weighed 7 lbs and 3 ounces when he was born on May 6. He doesn't seem to have gained any weight since his birth.

"Why was Archie bigger when he was [a] day old?" wrote one concerned royal watcher.

Another Instagram user wrote: "Is Archie kinda little? Not a parent so don't really know, he just seems really tiny."

Others wondered if perhaps the photo was old.

Meghan Markle was 37 when she gave birth to Archie - within the range of a high risk pregnancy.

Royal watchers posted side-by-side comparison photos of Archie and his dad at around the same age. The photos show noticeable differences between father and son. Harry appeared to be well-nutritioned, more alert, energetic, and happy. Whereas, Archie appears to be underweight and lethargic.

Others complained that Harry and Meghan were hiding Archie's face.

One Instagram user wrote: "As I said It's how Hollywood rolls and your new Duchess is all Hollywood."

Archie will be christened at age 2 months in St. George's Chapel where his parents were married last summer.

    How the hell can you tell how big this child is by looking at a got damn finger and his head? Leave these people alone!!!

  • Such_a_fn_Lady

    People are concerned too much with the wrong things. This picture is probably old.

  • tia

    Is it even worth the hassle and headache to post? Folks are going to dissect the pic to pieces. Well, people see a pic and take it out of context all the time. I think we see what we want to see. It's a shame...

  • the guest

    BEAUTIFUL baby boy.

    Spitting image of dad.

    Lovely Father's Day wish.

  • Kanyade

    precious baby is precious. perhaps they released an "old" pic, one taken before he was introduced to the world? still, precious baby is precious.

    royal watchers... lol

  • ShelbyMoore

    Diana was a bad bish!

  • DroneRivers

    ? Newborns are tiny. What did they expect? If he was already sitting up holding his own bottle THEN I'd be suspicious ?

  • NewNew

    It's probably an old picture. Either way these miserable people need to mind their business. As much hate as the mother receives from the public, I would hide my child's face too.

  • MsVAllDay

    It probably is an old pic. Just b/c someone posts a pic doesn't mean they just took it. People steady reaching. Let this couple be great.

  • Topic Influencer

    As I said It's how Hollywood rolls and your new Duchess is all Hollywood
    ^^^^^^^
    Its normal people out here blurring our their kids faces etc. I see it EVERY DAY on social media. It their choice. Let folks live and move the hell around

  • Ayeola George

    wow.. dammed if you do and dammed if you dont. the only diff for me is the newborn pic is closeup and the more recent pic is from further away. He looks likes his dad baby pic... let them people live...

  • Yardgirl

    PeriodT!! Cho!

  • Freeriah

    He looks all white

  • Yardgirl

    I personally LOVE how Megan rolls!! They have been terrorizing this woman from the moment they heard she was engaged to their white prince!! The lies and innuendos are mind boggling so she is giving them whatever she feels like and this is pissing them off. I love it!! BTW the baby is only 1/4 black so he will most likely look white.

  • Torae

    They probably released an old pic of their son because they wanted to. People on social media never use logic just assumptions.

  • YellowSauce

    Why are people so THIRSTY about everything ..........
    Today is the day I CANNOT
    Apply some moisture to the soul people ..... hahahahaha SMH

  • LeeSeeCee

    Folks need to get a damn grip. Seriously. There is ALWAYS shade towards this woman and now her child. Looks like a newborn pic to me, but, I really don't care. The pic is sweet. That's it. https://media3.giphy.com/media/pPhyAv5t9V8djyRFJH/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

    That little button nose is too cute !!!!

  • Dowoop

    Most ppl I know don't ever post current pictures... Ppl don't need to know everything as it happens. Also that picture that's supposed to be if Harry at 6 weeks is garbage... 6 week old babies don't hold up their head like that.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    I think all newborns are peculiar looking lil’ things...Next!

  • Dowoop

    Bums without a job is more like it.

  • Lady_Elle

    Much ado about NOTHING!!!

    Archie is the spitting image of his dad with the matinee idol looks Prince Harry.

    I swear folks be worried about the wrong damn tings!

  • Alextra Ballard

    I see why some parents are reluctant to show off their kids....folks always looking for somn negative to say.....Harry and nem purposely hid lil Archie’s face but he is still precious

  • Rayne

    I see harry all up and through this baby. He is gonna be some kind of cute too

  • Sha

    Awwwwwwwww, he looks like he has red hair. Beautiful and some babies lose weight after birth.

  • Fire & Ice

    This looks like a pic that was taken right after he was born. Btw thanks for the new post ?

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Folks need to get a damn life. ?

  • Shawty

    "Whereas, Archie appears to be underweight and lethargic."
    How would one know that when photos have been limited?
    We have yet to see a FULL photo of the baby so who would know if he's underweight?

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    people need to mind the business that pays them

  • EasyBreezy

    You are missed President O'Bama. .

  • Kim’s Original Face

    They need to leave this baby alone! Damn

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile... He does look hungry but I am a mother who woke her child up EVERY hour and half MAYBE 2 hours to eat ROUND THE CLOCK! AND my breast milk was FULL of fat cause momma KEPT carbs in her diet ????

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Looks like the kid has a tube in his nose, or blowing snot bubbles.

  • Phillybruh

    Its a black and white photo and they are showing us absolutely all that we need to see right now. I can't tell if he's hungry or sleep deprived, I doubt he's either, newborns have a lot going on the first few months and change everyday and are asleep for most of it.

  • Queen B

    Babies weight often fluctuate when they are born and then they'll pick it back up

  • Ryan

    Are british people really this pressed? Even with everything else going on over there and in this world in general? Lol

  • Cricket404

    Looks like a newborn pic. African American mothers want to see little Archie's ears, nose and feet. My grandson is small at 7 months, I think his mother is feeding him organic foods and breast milk on a strict schedule. I had plumped up my boys with adding cereal, which these new age parents think is gluttony.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    GTFOH with this crap. Leave that family alone! Dayum!

  • Ruth

    Why do we care about the royal family

  • free

    damn, he got a dome like his pappy.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lethargic?! ?....those Royals can’t be that stewpid,all babies are different.

  • Shira Harding-James

    It’s actually hair from Prince Harry’s Hand

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Thanks, you’re right!! It looked weird!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    The Thirsty Medling Media Folk CAINT TAKE THEM. THEY ARE MAD THIRSTY & MESSY AF!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    So!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    GET A LIFE!

  • DroneRivers

    This is why a lot of people aren't that forthcoming with pics of their babies. I don't think I've ever seen what Kerry Washington's kids look like and I don't blame her one bit. Let them babies grow up in peace without all the scrutiny and ugliness. People can be cruel.

  • leapyearpisces

    If they don't go somewhere with that damn REBORN baby...so bored with the tactics of the one percent..

  • SpiceGirl

    Y'all know a pair of lips will say anything?!!....Let these folks live THIER lives!!!

  • Bonita

    Well it's not like she really carried the child anyway. We'll need to get the real tea from her surrogate.

  • hottlanta

    Thats right baby hold onto that money

  • Guess Who

    SMMFH

  • Stan4NoOne

    I thought the same thing... Looks hella tiny.

  • Candance

    My son was born at 6 pounds, and at 6 weeks he may have been 7 pounds maybe. but now at 6 he is in the 99% for height and weight. He is now 4'2" and 65 pounds. That baby is ok!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    He will grow into it all..

  • DroneRivers

    Harry was about 3 or 4 months old in that pic. People will reach like hell to make their point lol

  • WutizstillHERE!

    OFF TOPIC Was I right to be suspicious or NAH..
    Soo friday me and Mr Movie were texting and the text were coming sparse like he was doing more than one thing (or having multiple conversations side eye) So please yall tell me what would your next text be if you got this..
    9:30 Him: Hey Babe
    9:32 Me: Hey Babe
    (nothing for a few minutes so I text)
    9:45 Are you having a good day?
    10:15 Him: Yes.....I would love to 69... I mean see you at 9 tonight..

    My girls said I was wrong but I was pissed. to me it seemed like that was meant for someone else.. When I asked was that for me? he said he was trying to be flirty and come out of his shyness but it went over wrong. Then he goes into the whole he needs someone who can trust him spill. BUT we have had a few prior conversation where he says things like "Like I told you xyz..' but we never had a conversation about xyz..I think he is slippin and dippin.. what you think..

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Who cares!! All that scrutiny is a bit much !Let them be GREAT.

  • Phillybruh

    How long yall been seeing each other determines how much you should care?

  • red

    Kind of looks like Megan's dad....lol..

  • Melanated Goddess??

    I've seen them. They're adorable. They were at a function with their mother and father. Her in laws were there as well.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Some pizz in your cereal?

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Then don’t read the comments!

  • Chell T

    Yeah, like your mom didn't carry you either. We'll need to get the real tea from your mom surrogate.

  • Yui

    Concerned royal watchers immediately remarked on how small Archie appeared to be at 6 weeks. He weighed 7 lbs and 3 ounces when he was born on May 6. He doesn't seem to have gained any weight since his birth.

    ———-

    Did anyone consider that was an old picture? Js

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    Ummm....I would be thrown off by that too. It would rub me funny. Especially if we never had that type of convo.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    We have know each other for years (15)but I have held him at bay as a friend. we finally decided to talk FRFR top of this year.

  • Trace da Ace

    maannn...that baby is fine!!! Folks always want to comment on on shit....LEAVE THE KIDS ALONE!! Its a damn photo...not a video....now I see why Megan wanted to keep shit private...smdh...

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    I had a loser that I had NEVER dated..tell me he and his little guy was excited to see me. I cut that mess off quick. Don't talk about your little guy that soon into the conversation. That's a turn off.

  • Miss Thang

    You can definitely overfeed a baby.

  • Trace da Ace

    hmmmm.... I would not jump to conclusions...but definitely keep your eyes and ears open!! One this is if he is cheating...he will slip up...trust me....my bff texted me this morning talking about she went through her bae of 8 years phone and this negro is talking to 2 other chics...doing the "i love you's" and all....I told her when do she want me to come over and help pack his shit and put on the corner for trash!!!! ...cause like Judge Judy always says....ITS NOT WHAT YOU KNOW...ITS WHAT YOU CAN PROVE!

  • MSGREENMINUSTHEENVY

    If people don't shut the heck up. Archie is doing great! Let that family be.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Exactly.. my intuition is running high as hell.. I spent the night over one night and he was at work and everything in me wanted to turn his computer on and see his facebook messenger...

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    Oh you better than me...bc I would have been through ALL of that computer history. Always check the blocked messages/contacts on phones. People will block certain people from calling or messaging while they are with you.

  • Myopinion

    Folks love to speculate on sh*t that's none of their business periodt!!! They let ya'll see the baby, which they didn't have to do.

  • Phillybruh

    Talk is one thing have yall had the conversation about being exclusive? Either, you might be looking to much into this at this point. Did yall make plans for 9 that night?

  • Logan Roberts

    They expected lil Archie to have biceps ?

  • Passion

    Follow your instincts, they are never wrong!

  • Raquel

    I wish folks would stop saying "mind ya business" when this information is EVERYWHERE and they chose to showcase the baby. It can't be situational.....you wanna mind ya business about this, but be all up in the next post about something else typing away your opinion. FOH

  • Lady_Elle

    He is a cutie... :-)

  • Shira Harding-James

    I could care less either way, It’s not scrutiny just a correction ?

  • Shira Harding-James

    I could care less either way, It’s not scrutiny just a correction ?

  • Shira Harding-James

    I went back and looked, I was like aww he has a tube and then like....wait a minute that looks like hair! Lol

  • GrandHustleGirl1

    You're right about that.

  • Latisaj

    Kids are of limits!

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Nope so when he came out the blue like that I was like umm what?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I think he looks like his daddy. Thank God so they didn't try to say she cheated or something...

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'll bring the trash bags!!

  • Bonita

    Look at you . . . all emotionally involved. That's so cute!

  • Bonita

    This baby is just one of their ancestors reincarnated.

  • Cliffpetty

    Yeah girl he had something else going on

  • IamAllnatural

    Maybe that’s not the real Archie!?
    I will never understand the fascination Americans have with these royal folks.

  • IamAllnatural

    All that texting back and forth doesn’t make sense unless he’s at work or around too much noise. The 9:45 text would’ve been my last one, ain’t nobody got time for that!

  • jwoo250

    Archie's fingers are chubby ass hell he definitely isn't starving ?? how you going to judge s picture based on part of his head and a half a nose?? Take care of yourself and your family.

  • Cie Be

    Lies, there is nothing wrong with Archie; please people who are talking crap take several seats, and worry about your own children!! Geeesh!

  • Jeloi

    It is sad that people take every opportunity to be vicious. I would hate being in the public eye 24/7. Can't even post a picture without idiots commenting that something is wrong or off.

  • Rhondalousey

    Get a life and shut up.

  • Rhondalousey

    I wonder if Kate has held him yet?

  • Allihave2say

    I can't stand the "Royals" being the German frauds they are.
    Also, I wasn't into Meghan until the right whites started in on her.

  • Allihave2say

    I hope he has light brown skin with a curly red afro and chocolate freckles. That'll teach him.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yep. I hope he's absolutely adorable!

  • FIGHT THE POWER

    awwwwwwww, look at the lil shape shifting reptilian.

  • sunni_daze

    All the royal watchers need to go watch their own damn kids/ family and mind their business. The baby is just fine.

  • Raquel

    The hit b*tch will holler.....

  • parisjok

    mean

  • Allihave2say

    Nuh Uhnn he's going to be cute!

  • Allihave2say

    I also hope Meghan gets a real clue about the folks she married into. Harry was always throwing up Natzi signs. I remember once thinking Meghan had a huge bruise on her face after the marriage. I worry about her being there with all that hatred and rejection. She was so happy and in love. I just want to hug her and say go home to Dora.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Harry probably sees some of Diana in Meghan. She's been divorced before so she has the balls to pack her baby and move back home.

  • Look@m3

    I still trying to figure it out! I wish someone would tell me because Im ok with out reading about this..

  • onelove

    they stressed that woman to death when she was pregnant!! ghezz!!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Alrighty...I just happened upon this thread and saw your comment. Why is your girlfriend with a guy of 8 years and they are not married? Marriage doesn't prevent cheating. But...I was just curious on why they didn't move forward. Smh...It's sickening...Not on her part...Just...the not moving forward in life part. Not trying to be offensive or nosey...Just curious really.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Well...whatever your decision. Good Luck!

  • Chell T

    Thank you. I know I'm cute.

  • DLB

    Your intuition is right.

  • Allihave2say

    And she has her own money.

  • Allihave2say

    I not being mean!
