Prince Harry Talks Missing Princess Diana Around Baby Archie's Birth | Personal Space

For one thing, Prince Harry carried the newborn into the photo call rather than taking the more traditional approach of having Meghan hold him.

In another break with royal tradition, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not make their son's birth certificate public. In October, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex traveled to New Zealand as part of their 16-day royal tour.

The royal couple have also yet to decide who Archie takes after, looks-wise.

It's unclear if Meghan plans to celebrate-she's likely mostly focused on caring for her days-old baby, at this point-but if she does, she'll also be able to commemorate the occasion with her own mother.

"Expect Archie to be christened in St George's Chapel, where Harry was christened and where he and Meghan were married as they have developed such strong links with Windsor". Meghan loved playing with him and she was always talking about him to her friends.

"We are incredibly excited to be launching this service, knowing it has the potential to reach thousands of vulnerable people every day", the four royals said in a statement.


As for his surname, Mountbatten-Windsor, the name is given to descendants of the Queen and Prince Philip, to distinguish them from the rest of the royal family.

Archie, who is seventh in line for the British throne, after Prince Charles, Prince William and his three children, and Prince Harry himself, is unlikely ever to be king.

They released the first official portraits of Prince George a month after his birth in July 2013.

Princess Anne was entitled to the royal titles of Princess and Prince for her children Zara and Peter, however chose to reject royal tradition and named them simply Miss and Mr respectively.

Meghan was said to have been "obsessed" with the antics of ginger-haired teen Archie Andrews - and her baby's name may also be a nod to her dad, despite their turbulent relationship.
