Meghan, Harry name baby son Archie Harrison

Meghan, Harry name baby son Archie Harrison

But the 34-year-old's big reveal might have been spoiled by Prince George, who let the name slip months ago.

The baby boy weighed 7lb 3oz and was born at 5.26am.

The couple then shared their chosen name on Instagram with an image of Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh and Meghan's mother meeting their newest great-grandchild.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor", Meghan and Harry shared on Instagram.

As for their son's looks, the happy couple said they're still trying to figure out who he resembles. Already, royal watchers can't help but wonder: Will this new little prince be the king one day?

Meghan Markle wore a white dress with nude suede Manolo Blahnik pumps to introduce their new son to the world.

"I don't know why he calls himself Archie, but kids often play with their names and I think it's lovely", the anonymous dog walker told the paper at the time. According to Babble, the name Archie is a variant of Archibald-a name of English origin that means "genuine and bold".

Alexander was the favourite at 4/1, while Spencer, James, Arthur and Theodore were all close behind with payouts at less than 10/1.


The newborn royal child, whose name has not yet been revealed, is seventh in line to the throne.

Meghan has taken a different approach to Prince William's wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, who walked into the media spotlight with her newborns in her arms, hours after giving birth at a hospital in central London.

A statement added that Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, was "overjoyed at the arrival of her first grandchild" and was with her daughter at Frogmore Cottage - the new parents' home on the Windsor Estate. "But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows".

Proud mother Meghan described him as having the "sweetest temperament", while a delighted Harry called him "our own little bundle of joy".

Prince Harry was talking about the coming weeks.

It was the first time that Markle has stepped out in public since she had the baby, early Monday morning, and since her maternity leave began in mid-March.

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension."

A previous of this story corrected the status of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Philip to great-grandparents, not grandparents.
