The stunning new image is the first glimpse of the toddler since their Oprah interview. All eyes are eagerly on Meghan Markle as anticipation over the arrival of her second child with Price Harry grows. But that certainly doesn't mean we've forgotten about their adorable son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The health body warns: "That's because the chance of getting COVID-19 on cruise ships is high, since the virus appears to spread more easily between people in close quarters aboard ships.

"Cruise passengers are at increased risk of person-to-person spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, and outbreaks of COVID-19 have been reported on cruise ships," it adds.

Americans who decide to go on a cruise abroad "should get tested 1–3 days before their trip and 3–5 days after their trip, even if they are fully vaccinated," the health body advises.

See the CDC website for the latest advice on cruise travel during the pandemic.

Some cruises in other regions have resumed services, including in parts of Europe, Asia, the South Pacific as well as the Caribbean.
