Duke and Duchess of Sussex reveal name of their baby boy
The newborn son of the royal couple was announced in a tweet by @RoyalFamily earlier this morning.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was introduced to the world, appearing before cameras at Windsor Castle.
The decision by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex came as a surprise to many, as the forenames are far from tradition for the royal family.
The name Archie is a shortened version of Archibald, which is of German origin and means “genuine”, “bold” and “brave.”
Mountbatten-Windsor is a legacy of the Duke of Edinburgh and has only been the family name of royals since the 60’s.
