The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently revealed their newborn baby’s name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Veuer’s Mercer Morrison has the story.

Harry and Meghan welcomed their new arrival in the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday (6 May). On Wednesday, he was introduced to the world via photographs taken at Windsor Castle with his parents.

The couple announced his full name of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, with a lovely black and white photograph of Archie meeting his great-grandmother and father, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, in Windsor earlier today. His maternal grandmother, Doria Ragland, was also present at the meeting and can be seen in the photo.

Archie is an increasingly popular name for a baby boy in the UK. According to the ONS‘ most recent statistics, it was ranked the 18th most popular choice for baby boys in 2017 climbing 15 places up the list since 2007. Meanwhile, Harrison is the 34th most popular name for a boy, actually decreasing in frequency by a mere four places compared with 10 years before.
