Duke and Duchess of Sussex newborn son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor has finally been presented to the world in pictures, with Meghan declaring: “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.”
Harry and Meghan presented their royal son to the world through posts on Instagram after he was named.
In the days after the baby boy’s birth, they had settled on Alexander, Arthur, James, Philip and Spencer as the most likely options, with their punters preoccupied with how the couple would honour the late Diana, Princess of Wales, but decided to call their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, they have also signified they will not use a title for their first born.
Archie means “genuine”, “bold” and “brave”, and is German in origin. Short for Archibald, it is now given as a name in its own right. It was the 18th most popular name for boys in England and Wales in 2017, according to the latest available figures from the Office for National Statistics.
Harrison means “son of Harry” so is likely to be a tribute to the duke
The baby could have become Earl of Dumbarton – one of Prince Harry’s subsidiary titles – or have been Lord Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, but instead he will simply be Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
