The first child of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is absolutely adorable and looked super cute wrapped in his ivory blanket by G.H Hurt & Sons which matched his knitted hat.

"It's magic. It's pretty unbelievable", Duchess Meghan Markle said about her new son.

Harry cradled his newborn son throughout Archie's first public appearance and admitted it is hard to tell who the baby looks like just yet.

Just two days after welcoming their first child together, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry revealed on Wednesday that they named their baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie, the red-headed comic book character?

While the parents made a decision to break with royal tradition by eschewing a hospital photo call, their choice of baby blanket was a subtle nod to previous royal births.

Many in Britain had expected a more traditional royal name, with bookmakers taking many bets on Alexander, Arthur and James.

Another added: "I'm sorry but I can't take the name of the royal baby seriously". Hamill quickly commented on the name choice with a tongue-in-cheek tweet in which he implied they misunderstood his request to name the baby after him.

The Duke & Duchess of Sussex are delighted to announce that they have named their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Done obsessing over the tiniest member of the royal family yet?

Royal author Penny Junor said: "I would think the Duke of Edinburgh would be absolutely thrilled with that".

Prince Harry said: "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks we're basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really".

The couple introduced their son to the world at a tightly-controlled event at Windsor Castle, England.

The newborn baby boy is the eighth great-grandchild of the 93-year-old queen, and could be entitled to hold joint British and American citizenship.

Charles Spencer is the younger brother of the late Princess Diana, Harry's mother, which makes him the great uncle of baby Archie.
