Harry gushed about his son later that day, telling members of the press, “As every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”

When his wife first spoke about her baby boy on May 8, she revealed, “He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm.”

The day after Archie’s birth, a source confirmed to Us Weekly that the former actress had welcomed her first royal baby in a hospital, instead of delivering the newborn in her home, Frogmore Cottage.

Prior to his arrival, the Los Angeles native and Harry revealed they wouldn’t be sharing their birth plans with the public.

The duke and duchess look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

Meghan and Harry wed in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018. They announced that they were expecting their first child five months after their nuptials.
