Two days after his birth, we finally know the name of the newest Royal Baby, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they had named their first-born Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor,” the two wrote on an Instagram post which featured a black and white photo of Archie being introduced to Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, and Meghan’s mother Doria. “This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion.”

Earlier today, the new parents shared a photo of their son for the first time but held off on revealing his name until now.

“It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy,” the Duchess said during the photo shoot in St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle. “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm … he’s just been the dream.”

The name Archie will come as a bit of a surprise to most bettors, as it was not one of the most popular names amongst oddsmakers for the son Duke and Duchess of Sussex, according to U.K. betting company Ladbrokes. The most popular boy name was Albert, which had five-to-one odds trailed by Philip and Arthur, which had six-to-one odds.
