Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Reveal Baby Sussex's Name

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Reveal Baby Sussex's Name

Baby Sussex's name was a big surprise - especially since Archie wasn't a top contender amongst those betting on royal baby names.

Archie's middle name, Harrison, has a very literal meaning: nameberry.com writes that Harrison is a "boy's name of English, Aboriginal origin meaning 'son of Harry.'" No explanation needed there.

In January, The Sun reported that Prince George told a dog walker that his name is Archie, when he was out with his grandmother Carole Middleton and sister Princess Charlotte in Berkshire. Their Royal Highnesses' son weighs 7lbs. Just to be friendly I engaged in a bit of small talk and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it.

Harry and Meghan's first born, who is seventh in line to the throne, made his world debut with his besotted parents at Windsor Castle on Wednesday. "I'm sure they will be thrilled", she said.

Meghan declared motherhood to be "magic".

George Clooney says the media should "be a little kinder" to Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, after she gave birth to a baby boy. "They are so incredibly grateful for the warm wishes and support they've received from everyone around the world, since welcoming their son two days ago". "Parenting is fantastic. It's only been two days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our very own bundle of joy". "He's just been the dream, so it's been a special couple of days". Chris Allerton, the photographer who took Harry and Meghan's wedding party photos, was behind the lens.

The Queen also exclaimed she had eight great-grandchildren as she was congratulated on the news, and is expected to visit the baby following her visit to the Windsor Horse Show.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, was also at Windsor Castle when the introduction took place. He has African-American heritage through his biracial mother.

Prince William, Harry's older brother and a father of three, joked Tuesday that he will be glad "to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting!" Harry is likely to make the jaunt to the Netherlands as a day trip so he can get back to his family in Windsor.
