Meghan Markle is a lifestyle blogger and a former American actress. She rose to fame after starring in legal drama Suits. The Californian star started dating Prince Harry in 2016. And their engagement was set in late 2017. The pair tied the knot in May 2018 with a spectacular royal wedding.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced their royal baby to the world last week. This could be one of the happiest moments in their lives. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The middle name of the baby ‘Harrison’ means ‘’son of Harry’’.
The Buckingham Palace confirmed that the baby will not be given any courtesy titles. The new member of the royal family was born on the 6th of May in Windsor. The little Archie is now seventh in line to the throne.
Where was Archie Harrison born?
The former actress wanted a natural home birth. Harry and herself moved to their new Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage ahead of their baby’s due date. Instead of her home birth plans, Meghan needed to rush to London’s Portland Hospital to give birth. As per some sources, the decision to take her to the hospital was a secret. Even the senior royals didn’t know about this.
Why could the Duchess not have a home birth?
Her decision to abandon her home birth could have been due to several factors. According to a gynaecologist; “You don’t know what’s going to happen when the body prepares for labour and birth.
“If a woman is on her second or subsequent baby and has had a normal delivery before then it’s likely there wouldn’t be any problem at all.
“But you don’t know what’s going to be the case until you have your first baby.”
The Duke of Sussex called an unplanned press conference to break the good news on Monday. He said that the mother and baby are both doing well. Prince Harry also added that it has been the most amazing experience of his life. He ended up saying that they wanted to share the good news with everyone.

She added: “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.

They both laughed and Prince Harry said that he doesn’t know who Archie gets that from.
