The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child was born at 5.26 am (BST) on 6 May 2019 at the private Portland Hospital in London, weighing in at 7 pounds 3 ounces (3.2602 kg).

Archie’s birthplace was shrouded in secrecy, with speculation that he had a home birth, but the details were eventually revealed when his father Prince Harry registered his birth in Westminster on 17 May 2019.

Archie’s proud parents posted the details on their SussexRoyal Instagram account and his name was announced two days later.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby christened Archie, wearing the royal christening gown, in a private ceremony on 6 July 2019 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

Unlike his Cambridge cousins, Archie does not have a title but will grow up as a private citizen.
