Royal fans will no doubt be excited about seeing how much little Archie has grown since the last time they saw a glimpse of him, back in December. On New Year's Eve, the couple released a video review of their year on their Sussex Royal Instagram account, which included a snap of the tot in his dad's arms in front of a lake in Canada - where they lived from late November to early March.
