Royal baby name: Meghan Markle pals reveal reason for picking Archie

He was also gifted an adorable onesie for his son Archie.

Harry and Meghan have broken with royal convention by making a personal decision not to use a title for their baby boy.

But now there are claims that the name also says a lot about Meghan's relationship with her estranged father, Thomas Markle Snr., whom she hasn't seen since he was unable to walk her down the aisle at her May wedding previous year. Archie's name was announced on Instagram alongside a lovely family photo of the newborn with his parents and great-grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip.

This happened back in January before his cousin was born earlier this week. It is a more popular name in Prince Harry's native UK, than Meghan's USA; in the UK, Archie is the 18th most popular boy's name and in the U.S. it doesn't make the top 1,000.

Meghan and Harry welcomed their son on May 6th.

Archie is traditionally a shorter version of the name Archibald.

"Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 05:26 on Monday 6th May".

The newest member of the royal family will also have to report gifts received from non-American citizens with a value higher than 100,00 (€89,138).

"On behalf of everyone at Mayhew, I would like to send our most heartfelt congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the safe arrival of their lovely baby boy".

The famous army of Mumbai dabbawalas, who serve home-cooked food to Mumbaikars at work dressed in their trademark white outfits and traditional Gandhi cap, will be celebrating the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby boy in a special way.

The new baby, who is seventh in line to the throne, is Queen Elizabeth's eighth great-grandchild.

When asked who he looks like, Harry, who wore a J. Crew suit while holding the baby, commented, "Everybody says the baby changes so much over two weeks". The couple then introduced the royal baby to the public during a photo call in St. George's Hall in Windsor on Wednesday.

"It's only been two and a half days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy". That same day, Meghan was noticeably absent from Easter service, though Harry, his brother Prince William, and Duchess Kate Middleton all attended, as reported by Harper's Bazaar.
