London CNN  — 

The world finally has its first glimpse of Prince Harry and Meghan’s newborn son, and his name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared in front of selected media behind closed doors on Wednesday, cradling their first child, who was was born at 5:26 a.m. Monday morning, weighing 7lbs 3oz.

The couple then shared their chosen name on Instagram with an image of Queen Elizabeth, the Duke of Edinburgh and Meghan’s mother meeting their newest great-grandchild.

Harry said becoming a parent was “amazing” as he held his son in his arms. “We’re just so thrilled to have our bundle of joy. We’re looking forward to spending some precious time with him as he slowly starts to grow up,” he said.

Meghan said their son has the “sweetest temperament.” “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I mean I have the two best guys in the world. So I’m really happy,” she gushed.

Queen Elizabeth II was expected to meet her new great-grandchild and his parents on Wednesday, a source familiar with the plans said. The source asked not to be named discussing the family’s private lives.

Meghan has taken a different approach to Prince William’s wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, who walked into the media spotlight with her newborns in her arms, hours after giving birth at a hospital in central London.

The palace would not confirm on Monday where the baby was delivered but said Harry had been by his wife’s side. The child, whose name has not yet been revealed, is seventh in line to the throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William and his three children, and Prince Harry.

The couple ultimately kept the details of the pregnancy under wraps after announcing they were expecting a baby last October, in line with their repeated requests for privacy since they began dating years ago.

An emotional Prince Harry addressed the press outside Windsor Castle after Meghan gave birth and said that he was “over the moon” and “incredibly proud” of Meghan.

“How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there,” Harry gushed.
