Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor (born 6 May 2019) is the son of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. A great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, he is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne.
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor is the son of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. He was born at 05:26 BST (04:26 UTC) on 6 May 2019 at the Portland Hospital in London. Several landmarks were illuminated in different colours to mark the birth, including Niagara Falls, the CN Tower and the London Eye. His name was announced on 8 May 2019. He was baptised wearing the royal christening gown by the Archbishop of Canterbury on 6 July 2019 in the Private Chapel of Windsor Castle. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to have their choice of godparents remain private.
Archie Mountbatten-Windsor is descended from the British royal family on his father's side and from the American working class on his mother's side. According to The Daily Telegraph, he is "the first half-American, biracial royal baby," and is "believed to be the first mixed-race child born to a senior member of the royal family in centuries, […] a reflection of modern Britain with its culturally diverse population." He is a citizen of both the United Kingdom and of the United States.
A great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne. He is also heir apparent to his father's Dukedom of Sussex, Earldom of Dumbarton, and Barony of Kilkeel.
Because the Duke of Sussex is not the eldest son of the Prince of Wales, his son is neither a British prince nor does he have the style "Royal Highness". His parents had the option of using one of Prince Harry's subsidiary titles, such as Earl of Dumbarton, as a courtesy, but they decided instead that he would be styled as Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, in accordance with their wish that he grow up as a private citizen.
... he represents change for the oldest of houses. He is half American, descended on his mother’s side from a bellhop in a Cleveland hotel, a laundry worker in Chattanooga, and a bartender in an Atlanta saloon.
