Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Parents’ Love Story

His parents first met on a blind date in July 2016. The date was set up by their mutual friend. 

At the time, Prince Harry was in Toronto promoting the Invictus Games while Meghan was working as an actress in the TV show, Suits.

Their mutual friend asked Meghan if she wanted to meet the handsome prince. Instead of saying yes or no, she asked a question. 

The question was, “Well, is he nice?”. She wanted to know this because if he weren’t kind, then it just would not make sense. 

They seemed to like each other, and the relationship moved quickly. 

In November 2017, the couple got engaged. Followed by engagement, the couple got married in May 2018.

One year after their wedding, the husband and wife were blessed with a son.

After his birth, the Buckingham Palace revealed that the Sussexes chose not to give him any royal titles. 

Since he is far down on the list of succession, his parents decided not to give him a proper royal title. 

In 1960, Queen Elizabeth declared that all males born into the royal family with no titles or styles would get the last name of Mountbatten Windsor

It is about the House of Windsor and Prince Philip’s last name, Mountbatten.
