Mountbatten-Windsor is the son of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and the former actress Meghan Markle. He was born at 05:26 BST (04:26 UTC) on 6 May 2019.[1] His father described him as "a bit overdue". The place of birth has not been revealed. The media speculate that he was born either at the couple's home Frogmore Cottage or at a London hospital.[2] Several landmarks were illuminated in different colours to mark the birth, including Niagara Falls, the CN Tower, and the London Eye.[3][4][5] His name was announced on 8 May 2019.[6]

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.[7] He is the first half-American and the first multiracial baby in the history of the British monarchy.[7][8] He is a citizen of the United Kingdom as well as of the United States.[9][10]

Title and succession[edit]

A great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II,[2] Mountbatten-Windsor is seventh in the line of succession to the British throne, behind his father.[7] He is also heir apparent to his father's Dukedom of Sussex.[2][8]

Because Prince Harry is the younger son of the Prince of Wales,[11] his son is not automatically a British prince or entitled to be addressed as "Royal Highness",[2] and was initially expected to be styled "like the children of any other duke" before any announcement had been made on this matter.[12] A subsidiary title such as Earl of Dumbarton can be used as a courtesy title,[2][10] but the parents decided that he would be known simply as Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, with Master as a prefix when required.[13]
