One of the world’s most beloved couples has just announced the birth of their firstborn child – and people from all over the world are sending in their well wishes.
Duchess Meghan Markle and Prince Harry of Sussex issued a statement earlier this week on their shared Instagram page announcing the arrival of a healthy baby boy weighing 7lbs. 3oz.
After deciding to name their baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the Royal couple conducted an official photoshoot with the newborn two days after his birth.
“The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives,” read the statement.
The boy, who is now seventh in line to the British throne, is the Queen’s eighth great-grandchild.
Archie is also the first Royal youngster who has been born with dual American-British citizenship.
Prince Harry, who was present for the birth of his son, told reporters that the joyous occasion has been truly remarkable.
“This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible, and, as I said, I’m so incredibly proud of my wife,” said the Duke, according to BBC. “As every father and parent will ever say, you know, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to-die-for, so I’m just over the moon.”
“It’s been the most amazing experience I could ever have possibly imagined,” he added. “How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension.”
