Sharing ten never-before-seen childhood pictures, she wrote: "My dearest darling boy. To get through today without you is the hardest thing ever. I miss you every minute of every day. I will never stop loving you. Not ever.

"Thank you for making me a mummy. It was the best adventure I've ever had. You never stopped me from smiling ever. Thank you for all those beautiful happy times. I shall be forever in your debt. You teach me everyday to be a better person. Love you today, tomorrow and always. All my love your devoted Mama."

"Archie's brothers and sisters and dear friends have helped me so much. You know who you are. I have you all. And I'm grateful for every message received."

Archie passed away in October at the young age of 19.

In January this year, Lucy revealed that her only son with husband Nicholas had passed away at his west London home while he slept after suffering a brain haemorrhage.

The results from a second post mortem carried out shortly before Christmas informed Lucy and Nicholas that their son suffered an intracerebral haemorrhage which was caused by acute lymphoblastic lymphoma. The condition is extremely rare.
