Exhausted but glowing with happiness, Meghan and Prince Harry showed the public their baby son’s face for the first time on Wednesday, and also revealed his name: Archie.
The royal couple said their son, seventh in line to the British throne, is named Archie Bald Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Mountbatten-Windsor is a surname used by some members of the royal family. The couple did not choose a highborn title for the baby, who is not a prince but could have been given a title with ‘Lord’ before his first name.
The statement came hours after the gratified parents posed for cameras, assisting to please a huge worldwide appetite for images and details about their new-born son. Standing in the vast, red-carpeted St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle, Meghan declared the baby was ‘a dream’ and called motherhood ‘magic.’
‘It’s pretty amazing,’ said Meghan Markle. ‘I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy.’ She said the baby born Monday at 5-26 a.m. weighing 3.26 kilograms had ‘just been a dream.’
Congratulations to the couple once again.
