Prince Harry, Meghan Markle name son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle arrived with their newborn son -- named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor -- at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, allowing the public to see their child for the first time.
Harry held the new royal baby alongside Markle as the family posed for photos and spoke to reporters.
Markle gave birth on Monday with Archie weighing 7 lbs. 3 oz. The child is Queen Elizabeth II's eighth great-grandchild and seventh in line to the throne. Harry and Markle got married in May 2018 and announced that they were expecting their first child in October.
"I have the two best guys in the world, so I'm really happy," Markle said on Wednesday. "We're so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy," added Harry.
Markle was wearing a white dress by British designer Grace Wales Bonner during the public appearance. Archie was wrapped in a white shawl made by U.K. company GH Hurt & Son.
The baby's full name was announced after Harry and Markle had introduced Archie to Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip. Markle's mother Doria Ragland was also present at the meeting.

Regarding the last name of Mountbatten-Windsor, in 1960, the Queen and Philip chose to make their own surname for their own direct descendants to be distinguished from the rest of the Royal Family and decided on a new last name, Mountbatten-Windsor. The Mountbatten name was inspired by Philip's surname which he used while as a Lieutenant in the Royal Navy.
Archie, a shortened version of Archibald has meanings such as genuine, bold or brave.
Harry, after Archie's birth on Monday, praised his wife and said that he was "over the moon."
"It's been the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine," he said. "How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension."

The Chappelle Show creator will be the 22nd person to receive the honor during a ceremony Oct. 27 at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington, D.C.
Previous honorees include Richard Pryor, Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Ellen DeGeneres, Carol Burnett, Jay Leno, Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray and Julia Louis Dreyfus, who was honored last year.
The Mark Twain Prize for American Humor recognizes those who have had an impact on American society in ways similar to Twain, a novelist and humorist.
"Dave Chappelle is an international recognized stand-up comedian and actor whose trademark wit and sharp, irreverent social commentary explores race, popular culture, sex, drugs, politics and fame," the Kennedy Center said in a release announcing the honor.
"Arguably the most-touring comic on the circuit, Chappelle, has performed more than 1,600 concerts worldwide in the past four years, selling out shows within minutes of their announcements."
Chappelle appeared in 2017's A Star is Born alongside Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott, and recently signed on to headline three Netflix comedy specials, two of which debuted on New Year's Eve.
"It was fun to be Mrs. Which, and I did that because I wanted to go to New Zealand and wear the costumes. But no, it doesn't feed my soul anymore."
