This is lovely.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child together this week, announcing on their Sussex Royal Instagram page that the royal baby had officially arrived and that it was a boy.

‘We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019. Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz,’ the couple announced.

It was later revealed that Baby Sussex had met the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and that he had a name, with the royals announcing the moniker of choice as, ‘Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor’.


Then, after showing us a glimpse of the newborn, Meghan returned to Windsor Castle to lay low and spend some time with her baby and Prince Harry flew off to the Netherlands to visit The Hague for the launch of the 2020 Invictus Games.

Having become a father less than a week ago, it’s hardly surprising that the 34-year-old was inundated with baby gifts, with his reaction when receiving an Invictus babygro going viral.

‘It has been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension,' Prince Harry said earlier this week following the birth of his son. ‘We are both thrilled and are so grateful to all of the love and support out from everybody out there.'

He continued: ‘I am so incredibly proud of my wife. As every father and parent would say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for – I am over the moon.’

We’re sure to see Archie sporting the present soon!

We can’t wait for the photos.
