Prince Harry, Meghan Markle’s Baby Has Been Named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Proud parents Meghan Markle and Prince Harry not only debuted their bouncing baby to the world on Wednesday, but also revealed his name!


In a photo posted on Instagram, the new parents announced that they have given a name to the royal baby, previously referred to as Baby Sussex. They chose a sweet, yet classic-sounding name, “Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.”

Archie has been on his very first photocall with his mom and dad just two days after being born.

In their appearance, Meghan remarked, “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.”

She added about her sweet son, Archie, that, “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm. He’s been the dream.”

He made headlines earlier this week when his mom gave birth to him early Monday morningat 7 lbs, 3 oz.



Fellow proud papa Prince William sent words of encouragement and said, “I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.” A smiling Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, stood beside him.

Three generations of other royal family members including the Queen and the Prince of Wales also shared their best wishes and happiness.


Meghan and Harry have been notoriously private about the couple’s pregnancy and birth. They have been enjoying blissful days with the new addition to the family before sharing him with the world.
