CUTE NEW PIC WITH QUEEN: Baby Sussex finally has a name!

The wait is finally over! Baby Sussex has a name!

In a post on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s official Instagram, it read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child:

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor

“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”

Welcome to the world Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!

In the gorgeous snap, little Archie can be seen alongside his parents, his great-grandparents, The Queen and Prince Phillip, as well as his grandmother, Meghan’s mother Doria.

In a break from royal tradition, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared inside St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle to formally introduce their newborn son to the world.

“Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share their first public moment as a family,” a caption read on a series of loving family pics on the couple’s official Instagram.

“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.”

Archie arrived in the early hours of the morning on May 6, weighing 7lbs and 3oz [3.26kg].

This week, we were told of the royal birth via the official social media of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The post read: “This afternoon, His Royal Highness The Duke of Sussex shared the news of the arrival of his and the Duchess’ first born child. Their son was born early morning on the 6th of May, 2019 and weighs 7lbs and 3oz [3.26kg].

“Their Royal Highnesses thank you for your support and kindness during this exceptionally joyful time in their lives as they welcome their baby boy.”

Meghan and Harry wanted to celebrate privately as a family

Ahead of the birth, the public were told they were going to have to wait a little longer to see a glimpse of their royal baby and hear all the details – as they want to celebrate privately first.

Harry and Meghan announced their plans via Buckingham Palace.

What an incredibly special surprise the grassroots led #globalsussexbabyshower was last Sunday! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are immensely grateful for the outpouring of love and support in anticipation of the birth of their first child. In lieu of sending gifts, the couple have long planned to encourage members of the public to make donations to select charities for children and parents in need. If you already made a donation, the couple send you their greatest thanks. If you are thinking about it, they ask that you kindly consider the following organisations they’ve selected, which we will highlight here over the next few days: @thelunchboxfund @littlevillagehq @wellchild @baby2baby The Duke and Duchess remain appreciative for your warm wishes and kindness during this especially happy time in their lives! Thank you for sharing the love ❤️

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very grateful for the goodwill they have received from people throughout the United Kingdom and around the world as they prepare to welcome their baby,” reads the statement.

“Their Royal Highnesses have taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private.

“The Duke and Duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

Breaking from royal tradition

When Harry’s sister-in-law Kate Middleton gave birth she posed just hours afterwards outside the private Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London.

However, Harry and Meghan will break with tradition and will instead host a ‘photo call’ at Windsor Castle, as they reportedly that announcing the birth straight away with pictures of the Duchess and baby was too much like a “goldfish bowl”.

YOU chose to be part of the collective good, and you have made a real difference. Whether a $5 donation, £1000 contribution, offering to volunteer, or spreading the word – you’ve played your part. And on behalf of The Duke and Duchess (and Baby Sussex), we thank you so much.
