On May 8th, the newest member of the royal family made his first public appearance prior to meeting the Queen and Prince Philip. Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on May 6th, 2019 at 5:26am. When Prince Harry first made the announcement of the arrival of his first-born, a name had not yet been decided. 

Baby Sussex's name was revealed after Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan introduced him to Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, on May 8th, 2019 in the afternoon. The first picture of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor with his great-grandmother and great-grandfather is one of the most incredible pictures we've seen so far. The image includes Duchess Meghan, her mother Doria Ragland, Prince Harry, the Queen, Prince Philip and of course, Baby Archie. 

"First biracial grandchild of the Queen"

The excitement and anticipation surrounding the birth of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's firstborn has been celebrated worldwide. Not only is it an incredibly exciting time for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the royal family, it is also history in the making. Baby Archie is the "first biracial grandchild of the Queen. That's monumental," according to Tessy Ojo in People Magazine

History in the making

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is the first half-American, half-British member of the royal family. This history in the making is groundbreaking when it comes to discussions surrounding race and inclusion. The photo of the Queen meeting her newest great-grandson marks the first time in royal history that "a British monarch has been pictured alongside a royal baby's Black grandmother," according to People
