The arrival of the much-anticipated royal baby boy of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been met with yet another strong expectation - his name. While many had predicted several names which they believed would be borne by the boy, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have themselves decided to quell all anticipation by making the big reveal.
Recently, the new mother Meghan, her husband, Harry, and some other members of the royal household christened the globally-embraced child. He was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
During this first public appearance - in which Meghan's mother just happens to also be present - it became very evident that Archie's birth has brought so much joy to the household.
Wearing a beautiful short flair gown that covered her afterbirth bump, Meghan beamed radiantly while Prince Harry himself grinned from ear to ear.
The name of the royal baby was made known to the expectant general public through the official Instagram page of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
In making the big reveal, photos of Harry and Meghan stepping out with their newborn were shared. Yet another picture featuring Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Meghan's mother posing with Archie was also posted.
See the post below:
"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.
