Royal baby name revealed (+ first pic with Queen)

It’s now official!

Finally, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced the name of the royal baby:

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!


In a statement posted on Instagram this afternoon, the couple said: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”

It looked like The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were delighted to share their first public moment as a family!

The family of three were pictured in a black and white snap showing off baby Archie to the Queen and Philip, alongside Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.

What does the name mean?

According to Baby Center, the name Archie has English origins (of course) and means “genuine and bold.”

It’s a variant of the name Archibald, although the Sussexes didn’t clarify if that is his whole name.

Will Archie have a title?

According to The Telegraph, the Duke and Duchess have signified they will not use a title for their first born by deciding to call their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The baby could have become Earl of Dumbarton or have been Lord Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, but instead he will simply be Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

A source said: “They have chosen not to use a courtesy title.”
