In just a week, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor has already taken the world by storm. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal baby was welcomed into the world on May 6.
The Duke of Sussex was completely in awe of his little boy and of his wife’s strength during the delivery. Just a few days after welcoming their son, Harry and Meghan introduced him to the world.
Ahead of his first-time meeting his great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, Harry and Meghan did a small photo-call with Archie. The world is already falling in love with the sweet boy.
The birth of a royal baby typically leads to an outpouring of congratulations and celebration across the world.
One of the many sending well-wishes Harry and Meghan’s way is Disney.
The animation company released an adorable original Winnie the Pooh animation featuring Harry, Meghan, and a bassinet with Archie’s name on it. It’s not the first time that a custom animation of the sort has been made for the royal family, but it’s sure to be one they’ll never forget!
Royal family fans are completely overjoyed by the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally welcomed their firstborn child. The boy was born on the morning of May 6.
Fans of the royal family have been following Meghan’s pregnancy from the earliest days, when it was just speculation. After rumors hit a fever pitch with Meghan’s appearance at Princess Eugenie’s wedding, the couple officially announced the pregnancy.
Throughout the pregnancy, it was clear that the couple was as happy as could be. They bonded and connected with children on many of their royal outings, leading fans to become assured that the two would be fantastic parents to kids of their own.
Meghan’s last official royal appearance before her maternity leave was during Commonwealth Day celebrations. The couple was all smiles as they made their way from events to church services.
On the day of their son’s birth, Harry decided to briefly address the press. The new dad was beaming as he spoke about his wife and newborn son.
The world got to meet the little boy just two days later. Meghan and Harry briefly greeted the press as their little boy lay comfortably in his father’s arms.
Following the press event, Meghan and Harry took him to meet some very important people.
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip met with the couple and their new little boy, with Meghan’s mom also in attendance.
It was after that meeting that his name was announced. Harry and Meghan named their firstborn Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
Well-wishes for the little family have been pouring in ever since. This past Sunday, the Duchess of Sussex celebrated her first Mother’s Day and treated fans to a photo showing Archie’s tiny toes over a bed of flowers.
Brands have even gotten in on the fun of congratulating Harry and Meghan on Archie’s arrival. Legoland Windsor posted this sweet tribute to the family’s first public moment.
Perhaps one of the most special and touching tributes comes from Disney.
The company created a custom Winnie the Pooh animation that shows the bear traveling through the Hundred Acre Wood to Windsor Castle with a storybook for little Archie.
The 25-second clip was drawn by Kim Raymond in the classic style of the 1926 A. A. Milne book, Winnie the Pooh. It’s an incredibly sweet way to commemorate this special moment in Harry and Meghan’s lives.
Surprisingly, it’s not the first time Disney has done something sweet for the royal family.
In 2016, the company released a 17-minute animation that shows Winnie the Pooh meeting Queen Elizabeth in honor of the monarch’s 90th birthday.
It’s wonderful to see the outpouring of love being sent the family’s way. They haven’t always had the easiest relationship with the press or the public, but a new baby has a way of wiping the slate and beginning again. It’s just the start of good times for the couple, who will also celebrate their first wedding anniversary this weekend.
Congratulations again to Meghan and Harry!
