Last Wednesday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduced their previously born baby’s name. The new parents said, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.” That same afternoon, Her Majesty The Queen was introduced to her eight great-grandchild. The two parents didn’t give the baby an aristocratic title even though he could’ve gotten a title with “Lord”. The name has a little precedent in the modern British family.
Archie was born on May 6, 2019, on Monday morning. Duchess Meghan, who is 37, and Prince Harry, who is 34, first revealed their son in front of the Windsor Castle. They did not immediately disclose the baby’s name because they wanted to protect their privacy.
The couple is very elated about the birth of their son. As Duchess Meghan stated, “It’s magic! It’s really amazing. I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.” They informed the press that Archie is really calm and so sweet.
The little child does not really resemble either parent more, as of now because his looks have been “changing every single day”. The two really want to see him grow up and spend time with him. Their family from both sides are also very happy about the birth of Archie, expressing their congratulations.
Their announcement of the birth read, “We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weights 7Ibs. 3oz.” They shared photos as well, then finally releasing his name.
Their unveiling was a little different from others. Meghan didn’t walk into the media and take pictures with her newborn right after giving birth. That’s unlike Prince William’s wife, Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge. They also kept the pregnancy under privacy after announcing they baby was expected to come last October. For press, the couple were also just met by one reporter, one photographer, three cameramen, and little more.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor made history because he is the first biracial child in the British royal family. This is a big milestone in British society throughout the ages.
