We knew with his collective gene pool, the newest member of the royal family – that being Meghan and Harry’s wee little lad – was sure to be cute as a button. And guess what … he is.
Here’s what we know about the newest Royal Baby!
We’ve seen plenty of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan throughout their pregnancy but the weeks leading up to the birth of baby Sussex were shroud with mystery. So to see this proud dad announcing his son’s arrival, was pure BLISS.
I mean guys, LOOK AT PRINCE HARRY’S FACE. #prouddad
Here’s the nitty gritty on what we know about Baby Sussex as they come to light:
Welcome to the world Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor ❤️
May 6th, 2019 at 5.26am
He’s no lightweight! Archie weighed in at a healthy 7lbs, 3oz at birth (that’s 3260g for those trying to convert to metric).
Place of birth
We know that Meghan and Harry shunned the tradition of delivering at the Lindo Wing, with Meghan wanting a home birth instead. However, like many birth plans however they can be turned on their head. With each day that passed, the Duchess grew increasingly overdue and was ultimately whisked away under the cover of darkness to a nearby hospital to give birth.
Baby Sussex is lucky enough to be a dual citizen between the United Kingdom and the United States of America. American citizenship was automatically acquired thanks to mum Meghan!
Baby Sussex’s parents, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex captured all of our hearts for the last few years. Prince Harry marrying American actress Meghan Markle was a love story unlike any we’d seen in the British Royal family and we frankly couldn’t get enough of them.
We love Harry, even more, when during announcing his son’s birth he expressed to the press how amazing he thought Meghan was, saying “I’m so incredibly proud of my wife”. He goes on to say how amazing woman are at what they do and we can see that his MIND IS BLOWN.
A place to call home
The new family of three will continue to live at Frogmore Cottage, which is only a hop, skip and a jump across The Long Walk road to Windsor Castle. Harry and Meghan recently moved from the Kensington Palace grounds to Frogmore Cottage which is in the lush green grounds of Windsor Estate. It’s believed the couple moved due to Frogmore Cottage providing more privacy for their growing family than what they would have received at Kensington Palace. We get it, Harry and Meghan, we get it.
Nanna comes to visit
The Duchess of Sussex’s mother, Doria Ragland, arrived a week before the little one’s arrival to be by her daughter’s side. It’s since been reported that Doria is staying with the Duke and Duchess at Frogmore Cottage. We can only imagine Doria has assumed all nanna duties and is making lots of cups of tea and burping babies like only a freshly appointed nanna can.
Royal baby Sussex is positively blessed in the family stakes. He’s the fourth grandchild for The Prince of Wales, Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, and the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s eighth great-grandchild. As mentioned earlier, this little one is Meghan’s mother Doria’s first grandchild.
Join the line to the British throne little guy
Baby Sussex becomes seventh in line to the British throne. His grandpa Charles, Uncle William, cousins George, Charlotte, Louis, and Dad Harry all being in front of him in the line of succession.
Firstly, take a few minutes to watch the official first interview, privy to only a few of the UK’s top media:
And here he is, our first glimpse of his little face and doting parents. Bless!

We had to wait for these first precious pics but they are well worth the wait.
We here at Mum Central wish you all the very best Harry and Megs as you flounder your way through these first days, weeks and months of parenthood.
