Royal Baby Named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Meets Queen

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have named their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Introducing him to the cameras earlier in the day, Meghan said: “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm. He’s been the dream.”

As they laughed, Prince Harry said: “I don’t know who he gets that from.”

The announcement came after the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh met their eighth and newest great-grandchild for the first time at Windsor Castle.

By deciding to call their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Harry and Meghan have chosen not to use a title for their first born.

As the first born son of a duke, Archie could have become Earl of Dumbarton – one of Harry’s subsidiary titles – or have been Lord Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, but instead he will simply be Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

A surprise choice, Archie was not among the bookmakers’ favourites of Alexander, Arthur and Albert.

“I don’t think anyone of us saw either of these names coming,” says Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty royal magazine.

As far as he is aware, Archie does not have any British royal connotations – and Harrison too is a totally new name for the Royal Family.

Archie means “genuine”, “bold” or “brave” – and is more popular in Britain than the US. It was originally a shortened form of Archibald but is now often used as a name on its own.
