Prince Harry and Meghan Markle name son after popular Manchester milkshake bar

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have finally announced the name of their newborn son, with Harry's favourite Manchester milkshake & burger joint, Archie's, pipping hundreds of other names to the post.*

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor - a mouthful for even the most fluent Englishman (or woman) - was revealed to the world today in a post on the Sussex Royal Instagram account.

Racking up over 1,000,000 likes in an hour, Harry's lad is already giving the Kardashians a run for their money, and with a name like Archie, we can already bet he's going to be following in his dad's somewhat rogue footsteps.

A statement, which accompanied a black and white photograph of a delighted Meghan, Queen Liz, Prince Philip and Harry, read:

"This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess' mother were also present for this special occasion."

The newest addition to the most popular family 200 miles south of Manchester was revealed to the world for the first time earlier today, in a series of photos taken inside St George's Hall in Windsor Castle.


It's the first time the newborn has been since since Meghan gave birth to him at 5.26am on Monday morning, when he weighed in at a healthy 7lb 3oz.

However, whether the young Prince takes after his father in the hair department is yet to be determined. You'll know when we do. Congratulations, Harry and Meghan.

*he is absolutely not named after Archie's, Manchester's popular burger and milkshake bar.
