Meghan and Harry have named their first child Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
The name is believed to have little precedent within the modern British royal family.
The couple shared the news on social media with an image of Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh meeting their newest great-grandchild.

There aren't any royal rules for choosing names but the British royal family likes to honor those who came before them.
We can also count on Baby Sussex being given a fair few names. Queen Elizabeth II bestowed four names on each of her four children. The full name of her eldest son and heir is Charles Philip Arthur George.
Meanwhile Prince Harry's full name is Henry Charles Albert David. Harry's brother William, the Duke of Cambridge, has continued the tradition of multiple names with all three of his children.
Earlier during the day when the baby was revealed to the world it was wrapped in n a GBR£ 105 shawl made by UK company GH Hurt & Son.
