Duchess Camilla reacts to seeing Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's first baby

Announcing the birth, proud dad Prince Harry said: "It's been the most unbelievable experience I could ever have possibly imagined". She wrote then, "Aspects of Taoism told through the characters of Winnie the Pooh - I mean, does it get better?"

He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm'.

Prince Harry's real name is Henry and, according to reports, Princess Diana and Prince Charles knew they were going to call him Harry all along.

The duke and duchess's son arrived on Monday May 6 at 5.26am, weighing 7lb 3oz.

Harry briefly pulled back Archie's shawl to show his face.

On which parent the baby resembled more, Harry said: "Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks. Parenting is unbelievable. It's only been two days, three days, but we're just so thrilled to have our very own bundle of joy".


Harry will make a flying visit to the Netherlands today to promote next year's Invictus Games - but no doubt the thrilled dad will want to hurry home to his wife and son as soon as possible. Both were made by English firm G.H. Hurt & Son, which has supplied three generations of royal babies with knitwear.

"His looks are changing every single day", Prince Harry said. He says "the press turned on them" and he thinks people should be kinder because "she's a young woman who just had a baby".

On their official Instagram page, the royal couple shared the first photos of their son as well.

News they were expecting a baby was announced in October at the start of the couple's busy 16-day tour to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga.

"Very untraditional", she said.

The baby, born seven pounds, three ounces, is seventh in line to the throne.


"It's been the most incredible experience I could ever possibly imagine", the duke said.

On Tuesday, Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed the couple to the "sleep deprivation society".

Meghan had her mother Doria Ragland by her side as she gave birth and Doria was "overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild".

Surprisingly, neither Archie nor Harrison were top contenders for royal baby names among those taking bets in the months leading up to Meghan's due date.

The Queen also exclaimed she had eight great-grandchildren as she was congratulated on the news, and is expected to visit the baby following her visit to the Windsor Horse Show.
