NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, named their newborn son Archie, Buckingham Palace announced Wednesday.
The royal couple introduced Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the public during a photocall in St George's Hall at Windsor Castle in Windsor, England.
The introduction will be the first in a lifetime of photo calls for the two-day-old baby, who is seventh in line to the throne.
Harry cradled the apparently sleeping baby, wrapped in a white blanket and wearing a matching cap, in his arms.
Meghan declared motherhood to be "magic." She said the baby had "just been a dream." "He has the sweetest temperament. He's really calm," she said. Harry quipped: "I wonder who he gets that from."
Asked which parent the baby took after, Harry said it was too soon to tell.
"His looks are changing every single day, so who knows?"
The couple left the photo call to introduce the baby to his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.
The infant is seventh in line to the British throne and is the eighth great-grandchild of 93-year-old Elizabeth, Britain's longest reigning monarch.
Baby Sussex was born Monday at 5:26 a.m. (0426 GMT; 12:26 a.m. EDT) at an as-yet-undisclosed location.
Family members have welcomed the new arrival, with Prince William saying on Tuesday he was "absolutely thrilled."
