A delighted Prince Harry cracked out the ‘dad jokes’ alongside an amused Meghan yesterday when revealing their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex spoke at a photocall in the grounds of Windsor Castle ahead of a meeting with the Queen - the first member of the royal family to see the child since his birth on Monday. When asked to expose more of their baby’s face to the cameras, the Duchess laughed as Harry joked: ‘He’s already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful.’
As her husband held their son, Meghan said: ‘He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm.’ To which a cheeky Harry replied: ‘I don’t know who he gets that from,’ before sharing a knowing smirk with his wife.
Their baby boy will not have a royal title like Kate and Williams’ children, Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, four, and Prince Louis, one, but will be known simply as Master Archie after George V limited titles within the family during the First World War. The child’s name was revealed on the couple’s Instagram account this afternoon, four hours after the beaming pair first showed their 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg) child to the world, during which Prince Harry described him as a ‘little bundle of joy’.
It’s believed that during the intervening period, the couple went to visit the Queen. With Meghan describing it as a ‘nice moment to introduce the baby to more family.’ And in an image posted yesterday the Queen, who was also seen earlier at The Royal Windsor Horse Show, is seen happily smiling at the newborn alongside her husband Prince Philip.
