Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, presented their newborn son to the world on Wednesday. The child, who was born on Monday weighing 3.3 kg, appeared in front of cameras in his father's arms, wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a white knitted hat. And now, hours after the 'royal baby's' appearance, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced their newborn son's name.
The couple has named their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and as per sources, along with the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duchess’ mother were also present for the special occasion.
The infant will be seventh in line to the British throne and Queen Elizabeth II's eighth great-grandchild. Harry is the younger son of Prince Charles, the next in line to the throne, and the late Princess Diana.
The 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex, who was an American actress known as Meghan Markle before she joined the British royal family, and Harry still haven't disclosed the planned location of the birth. But they ruled out the London hospital where the prince, older brother William and William's three children with Kate, Duchess of Cambridge were born.
Harry and Meghan married at Windsor Castle a year ago this month. In April, they moved from a house on the London grounds of Kensington Palace to Frogmore Cottage, which is on the property near Windsor Castle where they held their wedding reception.
