In celebration of International Women's Day, a new picture of Duchess Meghan, Prince Harry and their son Archie has surfaced as they prepare to welcome a baby girl

Duchess Meghan has long taken the mantle of being an example of a strong, female force for change - and now, she'll not only be passing that energy to her fans, but to her own daughter as well.
Just hours after their explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey went to air, a brand-new picture of Meghan and husband Prince Harry surfaced in time for International Women's Day - rather apt timing might we add, given they'd just announced they were expecting a little girl.
Yes, while the world will seemingly never tire from getting news snippets and updates from the US-based royal couple, it seems family life will remain as private as possible - so while we'll most certainly still get the odd update about these two, it's all on their terms.
Rightly so - and already, they're providing us the goods. The Sussexes good friend and famed photographer Misan Harriman, who was the person behind their original pregnancy announcement picture from February, shared another gorgeous snap of the pair and their son, Archie.
"What wonderful news to celebrate on International Women's Day!" Misan captioned his image, referencing their gender reveal, which occurred during the Oprah special.
"Congratulations my friends, and welcome to the #girldad club H," he finished.

In the beautiful snap, Meghan is seen sporting her baby bump and cradling Archie while Prince Harry holds his wife and looks at his son.
Both Meghan and Harry are bare foot in the image - the portrait of modern royalty - a welcome transition from strict royal photo calls and staged shoots.

Interestingly, the picture appears to have been snapped on the same day as their original second pregnancy shoot with Misan - though Meghan isn't wearing the same Carolina Herrera dress she wore in the last image.
As if we dared ask, Meghan gave us another glimpse of her maternity style, wearing a beautiful off-shoulder floral design featuring a tiered flowing skirt.

While we can't see little Archie's face, fans did get a short glimpse of him during Oprah's tell-all interview, with a short black-and-white scene cutting to the mother and her one-year-old son running along a beach.
In the glorious home video, Archie is seen wearing a cute little cardigan while his mother dons a black sporty tracksuit.
