The baby's name was announced a few hours after his proud parents posed with him for cameras, helping to satisfy a huge global appetite since their son was born Monday at 5:26 a.m. weighing 7 pounds, 3 ounces (3.26 kilograms).

Soon after the royal new parents stepped out with their newborn son at St. George's Hall in Windsor Castle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex retreated indoors to formally introduce Baby Sussex to his great-grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen. It was posted after their first official appearance as a family of three at Windsor Castle. Unsurprisingly, Meghan and Prince Harry broke tradition, as they are known to do.

The Duke of Sussex was at his wife's side and mother and baby are both doing well, the palace said.

The couple has not confirmed whether Archie is a formal name or a nickname of Archibald.

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. They're behind Prince Charles, Prince William and his children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, and then Prince Harry.

An announcement on their Instagram account read: "We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6th, 2019".

According to ESPN Stats & Info , the Warriors have been outscored by 14 points with Durant on the bench in these playoffs. That could end up being a huge blow for a Golden State team that has yet to win a game in Houston this series.

Anyway, the reaction to Archie-kins' name was fierce on Twitter. While they haven't exactly addressed why Baby Sussex only has one middle name, they have hinted at some potential reasons.

"Everyone is incredibly excited and couldn't be happier for Harry and Meg", the source said.
