The Duke and Duchess of Sussex — also known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, respectively — made their first public appearance as new parents today, May 8. Of course, they brought their new baby boy with them, giving us the first photos of the tiniest Royal. And yes, now the little one has a name.
In the grand halls of Windsor Castle in London, Meghan and Harry made their way towards a pool of reporters with their bundled boy in tow. “He has the sweetest temperament,” Meghan told reporters. “He’s really calm. He’s been the dream.”
“I don’t know who he gets that from,” joked Harry.
As for the name, which the public has been speculating over for months, Meghan and Harry revealed in an Instagram post that they chose Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor for their first royal baby. A name fit for a prince!
Can we just say how much we love that? Archie Harrison! So unexpected and yet so perfect.
Official photos of the event at Windsor Castle were shared to the Sussex Royal Instagram account. Let’s take a look!
“Today The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share their first public moment as a family,” the caption reads. Scroll through the Instagram embed above for a couple more photos of the royal family’s first outing.

Archie was born on May 6, 2019, at 5:29 a.m. GMT. He weighed 7 lbs. and 3 oz. Both mother and child were said to be doing very well, and given the photos we are now seeing from today’s event, that appears to be true.
Congrats once again to the happy family! We wish them all the best with their first. (It’s tough. Just ask Prince William.)
