THE NEW ROYAL baby – seventh in line to the throne – has been named Archie.

In a statement this afternoon, Prince Harry and Meaghan Markle – otherwise known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – announced that they’ve named their first born Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Images released earlier show the royal couple holding young Archie wrapped in a white shawl. 

“He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm. He’s just been the dream,” Meghan said her newborn son. 

“It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I am really happy.

In a video circulating on social media, the pair said they “are still trying to figure out” who the baby looks most like.

“Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks,” Harry said.
