Royal Baby 2019: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Show their Boy

May 8, 2019

The new royal baby has a name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The world got its first look Wednesday of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newborn son. The couple later announced the baby boy’s name.

The proud parents, the duke and duchess of Sussex, showed off their first child to the media at St. George’s Hall in Windsor, England. They had kept the world’s royal-watchers waiting longer than is traditionally the case and had spent two days at home before the photo op.

The new addition to the family, who was born Monday, wore a white woolen hat and slept through his first photo call. “It’s pretty amazing,” Markle said. “He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm, and he’s just been a dream, so it’s been a special couple days.”

Harry added: “We’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.“ He described parenting as “amazing,” after two days’ experience. Harry’s brother, Prince William, had earlier welcomed Harry to the “sleep-deprivation society.”
