When is baby Archie's birthday?

BABY Archie Harrison was born on May 6, 2019.

He was christened exactly two months later.

Archie is seventh in line to the throne and is the youngest great-granchild to Queen Elizabeth II.

The release of the official birth certificate revealed that the young royal was born at Portland Hospital in London.

What have Prince Harry and Megan Markle got planned?

Prince Harry and Megan Markle have scaled-down their original plans for Archie’s first birthday.

Originally, the pair had planned to take Archie to Scotland to spend time with Queen Elizabeth and have a picnic at the Balmoral Castle.

But they still plan to speak to the Queen via face-time, it has been said.

To be on the safe side, the birthday celebrations will now just be the three of them, and to make up for it, they plan to make baby Archie some animal-themed cupcakes, as he is said to be an 'animal lover'.

When was the royal baby introduced to the world?

Meghan and Harry beamed as they introduced their "amazing" baby boy to the world, at 12.40pm on May 8, 2019.

A few hours later the couple announced the baby's name – Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The new parents appeared tired but ecstatic as they cradled the newborn, with giddy bearded dad Harry joking his son "already has facial hair".

They kept him swaddled in a white blanket and hat as they spoke about their little boy.

The couple announced the birth of their son on Instagram by sharing a simple blue background featuring the words “It’s a BOY! Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are overjoyed to announce the birth of their child.”

The image was captioned: “We are pleased to announce that Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their firstborn child in the early morning on May 6, 2019.

“Their Royal Highnesses’ son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.”
