Meet Archie ... royal newborn who won't have a title

Share

Queen Elizabeth's grandson, 34-year-old Harry, and Meghan, aged 37, a US-born former actress, married in a lavish ceremony at the monarch's Windsor Castle in May last year; in January, Meghan Markle confirmed her pregnancy.

It was also an opportunity for the Duke of Edinburgh to show off his driving skills of the old-fashioned kind after the 97-year-old handed in his driving licence following a well-documented auto crash near Sandringham.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were photographed with their baby boy for the first time today at St George's Hall, Windsor Castle, near to their Frogmore Cottage home.

The name Archie may be short for Archibald, though there's no official word from Buckingham Palace that this is the case.

Harry cradled his newborn son throughout Archie's first public appearance and admitted it is hard to tell who the baby looks like just yet.

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.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, welcomed their first child into the world early Monday, while Charles and Camilla have been on a tour of Germany.

She described their son as being "calm" and having the "sweetest temperament". But now, after the reveal of Baby Sussex's moniker, some royal fans believe Prince George either overheard Meghan and Harry discussing royal baby names or is, perhaps, the one that named his new cousin. "I have the best two guys in the world, so I'm really happy".

It's unclear if Meghan Markle's father will meet baby Archie but Prince William and Princess Kate have said they are excited to meet baby Archie's acquaintance.

The blanket, known as the Ivory White Leaves and Flowers Baby Shawl, retails at £105 and is from Nottingham-based shawl maker G.H.Hurt & Son.

Asked who the baby takes after, she said: "We're still trying to figure that out".

Several women said it seemed she had made a choice to accentuate her figure with a bespoke belted dress by British designer Grace Wales Bonner.
