Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Name Their Bub 'Archie', A Royal Family First

Unlike many senior royals, Archie only has one middle name - Harrison - which is of Aboriginal origin and, in a fitting tribute to the baby's father, means "son of Henry" or "son of Harry".

"But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows", Prince Harry said of the baby when quizzed on who he takes after.

It's the kind of mistake that happens all the time. Besides seeing photos of her step-grandson, Camilla was also gifted a big teddy bear to pass along to the royal baby.

But reports previously emerged that Meghan and Harry were considering an unusual name that was relevant to both Britain and the US.

Markle wore a white sleeveless dress, while Prince Harry sported a grey suit.

Asked what parenting is like, the Duke of Sussex said: "It's great".

Its shawls have also been used previously by other members of the Royal Family.

Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is the first child for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and early reports indicate there is no special meaning behind the name Archie. Meghan appeared to be in excellent health when she and Prince Harry appeared in Windsor Castle with baby Archie and answered press questions.

She said the baby had "the sweetest temperament" and has "just been a dream".

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have finally shared their son's name with the world!

Archie was born at 5.26am on Monday and the couple have since enjoyed some peace and quiet at Frogmore Cottage, nestled within the grounds of the royals' Windsor estate.

"I'm so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely awesome, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I'm just over the moon", he told reporters.

Prince Harry added that Baby Sussex's looks have been "changing everyday".

On Tuesday, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed the couple to the "sleep deprivation society".

The photo shows little AHMW swaddled in the arms of his mother, while surrounded by his maternal grandma Doria Ragland and paternal great-grandparents Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
