Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just announced the name of their firstborn child, a son they have called Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
It’s official, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have made the formal announcement for their firstborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Archie’s birth was first announced by Prince Harry two days ago.
According to the official online sources, Meghan delivered Archie at 5:26 am on Monday morning.
That afternoon, Harry said that he and Meghan were “absolutely thrilled” with their child’s arrival, and he was overdue, as they had not decided on a name yet.
Prince Harry said, “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing so we just wanted to share this with everybody.”
Archie was delivered at a London hospital and weighed in at 7lbs and 3oz, despite Meghan saying that she wanted a homebirth at Frogmore Cottage.
And as an unfortunate break from royal tradition, Archie’s public appearance wasn’t the first day of his birth the same way that Prince William and Kate’s children were.
Talking about her newborn at St. George’s Hall, Meghan said, “I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy. He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm.”
Meghan then said that despite rumors that the Queen would be the first senior Royal to meet the newest arrival, they actually accidently bumped into the Duke of Edinburgh on their way to the photo shoot.
