After months of speculation about the royal baby’s name – we finally have the answer. The Duke and Duchess’ boy is called Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
The couple broke the news on their official Instagram account, along with an adorable black and white picture of the new family of three alongside the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland.
Official confirmation came from Buckingham Palace at 4.45pm and read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to announce that they have named their son Archie Harrison.
“The baby will be known as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.” 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 firstborn 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 source said: “They have chosen not to use a courtesy title.”
