Just hours after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed their newborn son to the world, the child’s name has been announced.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have named their child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the couple revealed via Instagram.
The Queen was told of the child’s name when she met him for the first time today, following Meghan and Harry’s two-minute interview at Windsor Castle.
Doria Ragland, Meghan’s mother, and the Duke of Edinburgh were also present during the meeting with the Queen.
The couple shared an intimate black and white photo of the party of five, with the Queen smiling at her eighth great-grandchild in Meghan’s arms. Chris Allerton, the photographer who took Harry and Meghan’s wedding party photos, was behind the lens.
The seventh-in-line to the throne, who was born at 05:26am on 6 May 2019, hasn’t yet had his title revealed.
Not a favourite with bookmakers
Yesterday William Hill selected a new favourite name - Spencer at 4/1 - the maiden name of Prince Harry's late mother Princess Diana.
Other top picks for the royal baby boy are James and Alexander, both at 5/1.
The couple posed with their baby boy for photos at 12pm this afternoon in Windsor Castle, revealing parenthood is “magic” and they’re “still trying to figure out” who their son looks like.
