An official announcement has been made from the Royal Family. Baby Sussex now has a name!
He will be Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
A photo was also released showing the Queen and Prince Philip meeting baby Archie.

It’s certainly an interesting choice for a Royal name. I’m in the dark here – do Archie or Harrison have any previous royal history?
He is also not a Prince. It’s been confirmed that he will not have a title, for now. He will simply be ‘Master Archie.’ Which seems anachronistic. But etiquette expert William Hanson explains it well:
Etiquette: young male children are styled ‘Master’.
When they hit puberty the modern practice is generally to leave off any prefix and use just FirstName LastName.
Then when they turn 18 they become a ‘Mister’.

Congratulations to the young family. This is a magical time for any couple. I hope they have a lot of fun getting to know Master Archie.
