After a difficult year for Britain, with so much news coverage devoted to Brexit, it was a nice relief to see some positive news in the form of the birth of Baby Sussex (who’s now known as Archie).
He is the son of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, and was born at 5:26 on the 6th May in London’s Portland Hospital. His full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten – Windsor. The couple shared the news on Instagram with an image of Queen Elizabeth and Megan’s mother Doria Ragland, meeting their newest great – grandson. BBC royal correspondent Jonny Dymond said there was a “strong indication” that Archie won’t be brought up as a formal ‘royal’. Harry and Meghan Markle have made it very clear that they plan to break tradition and raise their son away from the spotlight, so as to give him the most ‘normal’ upbringing possible, possibly even in South Africa, where Harry’s uncle, the Earl of Spencer, lives.
