Baby Sussex finally has a name!

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took to their official social media accounts to announce the name of their baby boy — and it’s certainly unique, and pretty darn adorable!

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor,” the post read. “This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”

The announcement came alongside a sweet new family photo of baby Archie meeting his great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, presumably for the very first time.

Meghan’s mom Doria Ragland (who traveled to England for the birth) was also pictured.

The name reveal comes just two days after baby Archie was born on May 6, 2019, and only hours after he made his first public appearance when his parents introduced him to the world via a photo-call at Windsor Castle attended by limited press.

As for who baby Archie looks more like, that’s still up in the air.

“Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks,” the beaming new dad explained. “We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows?”
