The royal romance of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has just been blessed with a wonderful baby boy this Monday.
Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle announced the birth of their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor today. The baby was born two days before they made a public appearance. Both the Duke and the Duchess were overjoyed and described having a baby as “magic” two days after the royal birth.
The mother and the son, both were dressed in white. Baby Archie was wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a white knit cap, twinning with his mother who was also draped in white while the father wore a white shirt paired with a grey jacket. The new family appeared before a small group of media at St. George;s Hall at Windsor Castle in the English country of Berkshire, where they had previously held their reception just under a year ago.
The couple had said that they wanted to choose a name that had a feeling of both the countries, United Kingdom and United States.
The newborn arrived at 5:26 a.m., weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces on Monday. Their child is seventh in to the British throne.
After the public appearance in front of the news channels, they posted a picture on Instagram with an image of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh meeting their newest great-grandchild. Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland is also staying with the couple at their home Frogmore Cottage to be with her daughter.

Meghan told the press that the baby is quite calm with the sweetest temperament and is sleeping well.
“He’s just been a dream, so it’s been a special couple of days.”
Meanwhile, Prince Harry seemed to be “over the moon” as well.
The new dad told reporters that he was over the moon about his son, telling that both “the mother and baby are doing incredibly well.”
“It’s great, parenting is amazing,” Harry said. “It’s only been 2½ days, three days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy, to be able to spend some precious time with him as he slowly starts to grow up.”
Meghan Markle has been known to be a little rebel, following in the footsteps of her late mother-in-law. And even after her son’s birth, she was seen setting things right in the royal family. Meghan wearing a white dress by British designer Grace Wales Bonner, fearlessly showed her baby bum and was praised on Twitter for “not trying to hide” her postpartum bump, keeping it real for all other mothers out there.
I’m so pleased Meghan has appeared clearly still with a bump! YES to this! #royalbaby

LOVE that Meghan has come to her photo call without trying to hide the ‘after birth baby bump’. Absolute icon. This is how 99% of women look after birth and she is helping normalise it. She looks amazing and is absolutely glowing. Power to her and all new mothers! ? #babysussex
