Fans of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated with the couple in May when they announced the arrival of their son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Since the baby arrived, royal followers have only seen him a handful of times so it was hard to really determine how he looks.

Then, during the Sussex family royal tour of Africa, Harry and Meghan gave fans a treat by bringing Archie along with them to visit Archbishop Desmond Tutu in Cape Town. This surprise appearance by the four-month-old cutie had the internet in a frenzy.

People couldn't stop oohing and aahing over pictures of Prince Harry's adorable son and many came to the conclusion that Archie looks more like his father.

While most people commented on the baby's cuteness, others seemed to have issues with the pictures. A few people were of the opinion that Meghan did a bad job of holding her little one.

The Duchess received criticisms for the way she carried her baby and was even accused of hoarding the child, thereby preventing her husband from carrying him.

Some comments were quite brutal and overly unfair but as we all know, there will always be social media trolls who prefer to focus on the negatives.

Nevertheless, it was really cool seeing Harry, Meghan and their son. Plus watching the way they interact was a delight as well.
