Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally introduced their newborn to the world and revealed his name and the meaning behind it. Baby Sussex, as the baby has been referred to up until now, has been given the name Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, and will be addressed as Master Archie. Meghan and Prince Harry want their kids to be brought up living as normal lives as possible, and that is why Prince Harry reportedly will not give his son the title Earl of Dumbarton, as was perhaps expected by royal experts since it would have followed the traditions.
The newest addition to the royal family is seventh in line to the throne but does not automatically get the Prince title nor will he be called His Royal Highness. According to a decree from 1917, only Prince William's oldest son, Prince George, would be entitled the Prince title, but the Queen stepped in and gave all of Prince William and Kate's children Prince or Princess titles. It was also the Queen who gave Prince Harry and Meghan their titles Duke and Duchess of Sussex when they got married last year. The Queen would technically be able to grant their son with a title too, but some believe that Meghan and Harry might not be interested in that anyway.
As reported by ET Online, Archie, or Archibald, is not a traditional name within the royal family, although one of Prince Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana's, ancestors was called Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll, from Scotland. Archibald means true and bold, which are both great attributes for their little son.
Archie's second name, Harrison, means 'son of Harry' and is an old English name. Prince Harry's son is the first of his name in the royal family, and he is also the first royal baby with both British and American ancestry.
Archie is also the name of one of the main characters in Riverdale, which has made fans jokingly assume that Prince Harry and Meghan must be big fans of the teen mystery drama. With having introduced little Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor, Prince Harry and Meghan will most likely take some time to enjoy the addition to their new family privately - perhaps while watching Riverdale!
