Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have named their baby boy Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Speaking in St George's Hall at Windsor Castle, the Duchess of Sussex said: “It’s magic. It's pretty amazing and I have the two best guys in the world, so I'm really happy.
“He has the sweetest temperament. He's really calm and has just been the dream, so it's been a special couple of days.”
Speaking to press, the Duke of Sussex continued: “Parenting is amazing. It's only been three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.”
On 6 May, Buckingham Palace announced the birth, saying that mother and baby were both doing well.
Prince Harry, who was present at the birth, called it “the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined.”
The Royal baby arrived weighing 7lbs 3oz, is currently seventh in line to the throne.
Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, had not made an appearance on the birth day of the Royal baby, instead deciding to spend time with the new born baby in their home, Frogmore Cottage.
Buckingham Palace also said: “The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage.”
