It’s a Boy! The Royal Baby is Here

In the early hours of May 6th, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed a baby boy into their ever-so-slightly famous family. The new royal baby, called Archie, is seventh in line for the throne.

Despite numerous tabloid stories indicating that Meghan had already given birth weeks ago and it was all being kept hush hush, the birth was announced within 24 hours via Instagram.

The birth announcement

“I’m just over the moon”

Prince Harry has spoken about his new son and was rightly emotional:

“I haven’t been in many births, this is definitely my first birth! But it was amazing, absolutely incredible, and as I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife. As every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing. But this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”


What do you think of the baby’s name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor?

    I really like his name and his middle name Harrison – son of Harry. So cute! Harry announcing the birth was adorable too.

    For some odd reason when I hear Archie…it’s the comic character that comes to mind. But overall, it sounds more modern than the usual naming conventions. It’s the sign of the times.

    I love the name Archie – I think that it would suit someone who is a bit cheeky – like Harry.

    I love the name. I think its rather cute. It’s not too known around so makes it that little bit unique also. They seem like such proud parents. Very cool. I love photos etc of the new royalty additions. They are always super cute 😍

    Lovely, the name is pretty cute actually 🙂 It sounds like Dad is totally smitten, as he would be 🙂 Let’s hope they both enjoy their new roles

    I like the name Archie there are several children I know already with this name it seems very popular especially at our local school. They look such great parents as well which is great and very relaxed.
