The Duchess of Sussex gave birth to her first child, son Archie Harrison, at London’s Portland Hospital.
Meghan welcomed her baby boy with her husband Prince Harry in the early hours of May 6.
The couple had hoped for a home birth at Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor Estate, however, it was said Meghan was taken to hospital on Sunday night.
Now, the official birth certificate – obtained by Hello! Magazine – of Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor has been released, confirming that the Duchess of Sussex gave birth in hospital.
Archie was born at 05:26 on Monday 6th May, weighing 7lbs 3oz.
Last week, Meghan and Harry proudly showed off their son to the world for the first time in front of cameras inside St George’s Hall at Windsor Castle.
The tiny newborn was wrapped up in a white blanket and matching hat as proud dad Harry, who wore a grey suit, cradled the tot in his arms.
Speaking about parenthood, new mum Meghan – who looked radiant in a white blazer dress – said: “It’s magical, pretty amazing. I mean I have the best two guys in the world. I’m really happy.”
Speaking about her baby son, Meghan added: “He has the sweetest temperament and he’s really calm and been the dream. It’s been a special few days.”
Harry continued: “It’s great. Parenting is amazing. It’s only been two days, three days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our very own bundle of joy.”
Hours later, the couple announced their baby boy’s name alongside a photo of the royal tot meeting his great grandmother the Queen and Prince Philip.
Meghan’s mum Doria Ragland, who was by her daughter’s side at the birth, was also in the photo.
According to the site BabyCentre, the name Archie has English origins and means “genuine” and “bald”, meaning “bold” or “brave”.
