Royal parents Meghan and Harry have named their firstborn Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

Meghan and Harry Just Revealed Their Baby’s Name and It’s a Surprise

Royal fans have been speculating about the newborn’s possible moniker ever since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were expecting back in October. Common guesses have included royal names from within the family, like Diana (after Harry’s late mother) or Elizabeth (after the Queen, AKA Harry’s grandmother) for a girl, or Albert for a boy.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry just revealed the name of their first child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The newborn's name actually has an important significance in the royal family.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their son on Monday, May 6 and hours after the delivery, Harry said they were “still thinking about names.” The day after, aunt Kate Middleton said she and Prince William were still looking forward to “finding out what [the baby’s] name is going to be.”

Even when they stepped out with their baby boy earlier this morning at Windsor Castle, the new parents didn’t reveal the name yet. It’s believed they wanted to tell the queen the news first before sharing the little one’s moniker with the rest of the world. According to royal reporters on Twitter, the monarch met with the couple and her great-grandchild after the photo call.

During her appearance earlier today, Meghan said of being a mom, “It is magic and it is pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world. And so I am really happy.”

Harry also shared sweet sentiments about being a first-time parent. “It has only been what, two and a half, three days,” he told press. “We are just so thrilled to have our own bundle of joy and to be able to spend some precious time as he slowly starts to grow up.”
