Royal Baby Sussex Has Been Named And Officially Meets The Queen For First Time

After releasing the picture earlier today, the baby boy has now been named as well. He will be called Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The excitement of the first image of the baby hasn't even subsided yet and we have more exciting news. The Royal Baby Sussex officially has a name now -- Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The couple announced the name of their "bundle of joy" on their official Instagram account -- Sussex Royal, along with an adorable picture of the proud parents, the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and the mother of the Duchess, Doria Ragland, reported The Telegraph.



 

It was posted with the caption: "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.

Earlier today, a photograph of the baby was captured as the couple strolled in St George's Hall at Windsor Castle. While speaking to the press, Meghan gushed saying, "He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm." Both of them laughed and Harry added, "I don't know who he gets that from." Harry, who was in a light grey suit, cradled the newborn while the Duchess, in a white dress and couldn't stop herself from repeatedly rubbing her newborn's head.

They were also asked who the baby resembles, to which Prince Harry responded that they would have to "monitor him over the next month" because "his looks are changing every day". Meghan, visibly happy and content, said "It's magic, it's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy."



 

According to The Telegraph, in the announcement of the name, the Duke and Duchess have signified they will not use a title for their first born. 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. A source said: "They have chosen not to use a courtesy title."
