BREAKING: Meghan and Harry reveal their baby’s name

No title, as yet, for the seventh in line to the throne                 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have named their son Archie. The announcement was made on the family’s official Instagram page. The baby’s full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Accompanying the announcement was a new photo of the Queen with her eighth great grandchild. Doria Ragland, Archie’s maternal grandmother, is also pictured along with the Duke of Edinburgh.

Archie’s parents have chosen for him not to use a courtesy title at this time – as the son of a duke he could have used his father’s secondary title of Earl of Dumbarton. However, for now, he will be known as Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie was born at 5.26am on Monday May 6th 2019 although where he arrived hasn’t yet been confirmed. He weighed 7lbs 3 oz. His birth was announced in the early afternoon of the same day when he was safely at home with his parents.

Speaking soon after his son’s arrival, Harry said mother and baby were doing ‘’incredibly well’’ and described his little boy as ‘’to die for’’. He also paid tribute to his wife of whom he said he was immensely proud.

Earlier today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex presented Archie to the world as they posed for photos with their son in St. George’s Hall, Windsor.
