Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have thanked fans for their kind wishes following the birth of their first son Archie with cute cards.

The couple sent thank you notes to people who have written or sent them cards in the last few months, featuring a gorgeous photo of their little family.

The picture was taken at the official photocall where they introduced their son to the world when he was just a few days old, and shows them walking through the door just a split second before they turned the corner to greet the cameras.

Proud dad Harry, who is holding Archie, is looking straight at the camera while Meghan looks ahead.

On the reverse of the card is a typed message from the couple.

It says: The Duke and Duchess of Sussex greatly appreciate you taking the time to write and celebrate the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

"Their Royal Highnesses have been incredibly touched by all the warm wishes they have received during this especially joyful time in their lives.

"They send their best wishes and heartfelt thanks."

One of the lucky fans who received a card shared a snap on Instagram, writing: "Thank you postcard from TRH the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, thanking me for sending my good wishes on the birth of their son.

Meghan gave birth to Archie at the private Portland Hospital in Westminster - which costs about £20,000.

Breaking for royal tradition, the couple didn't announce where their son had been born saying they wanted to keep details surrounding the birth private.

There was much speculation that she had given birth at home, but his birth certificate confirmed he was born at the hospital.

Portland is a celebrity favourite when it comes to maternity hospitals, with a whole list of A-list patients on the books.

It offers up some very luxury options to mums-to-be and new mums, including champagne and lobster.

Victoria Beckham gave birth to two of her four children in the hospital and it's also where Jamie Oliver's wife, Jools, opted to have her babies.

Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew delivered their first-born, Princess Beatrice, at The Portland.
