Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Reveal Name and Introduce Royal Baby
The baby boy — named Archie — had his first photo-op on the grounds of Windsor Castle on Wednesday.
After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry introduced their newborn royal baby to the world with a photo-op on the grounds of Windsor Castle, the pair revealed their son's name to be Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Rather than the royal tradition of posing outside the hospital after their son was born Monday, the couple chose to celebrate privately, instead emerging two days later from their home.
The name of the royal baby — who was born at 5.26 a.m. Monday morning weighing 7 pounds 3 ounces — had been heavily tipped by bookmakers to be either James or Alexander.
Markle, 37, married Prince Harry, 34, in May 2018 at Windsor Castle and announced in October that they were expecting a child via the social media account of Kensington Palace. The baby is the seventh in line to the British throne.
"It’s been the most amazing experience I can ever possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension," said Prince Harry after the birth Monday.
