On May 6, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first baby was born. He weighed seven pounds and three ounces.

It wasn’t until Wednesday, May 8, that they revealed the baby to the public outside of the Windsor Castle’s grand St.George Hall. Later that day, they revealed the name of their newborn son: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

“We are just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy,” Harry told the press outside the castle.

Prince Harry named his son Archie after his commanding officer in the army: Major Tom Archer-Burton, known as Archie by his friends. The major allowed Harry to serve the front lines in Afghanistan, which made him the first royal deployed since 1982.

“I think that it’s pretty neat that Prince Harry named his son after someone he admired,” sophomore Litzi Galvan said.

Meghan and Harry have also decided not to give their baby a title because they want to give him a normal life as possible, but Archie could still have a title later on when Prince Charles becomes King.
