The former military pilot, 34, and the Suits alum, 37, introduced the world to their first child earlier on Wednesday, and took to their Instagram account to reveal his name, sparking a multitude of reactions.

“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion,” a photo of the twosome with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip, Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland, and the child was captioned. (The proud parents have decided to not give Archie a royal title with the hopes of raising him as normal as possible.)

“Meghan and myself had a baby boy early this morning — a very healthy boy,” the duke gushed. “Mother and baby are doing incredibly well. This has been the most amazing experience I could possibly imagine. How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension. But we are both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everyone out there. It’s been amazing. So we just wanted to share this with everybody.”

Harry added: “I haven’t been in many births. This is definitely my first birth. It was amazing, absolutely incredible. As I said, I am so incredibly proud of my wife and as every father and parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing, but this little thing is absolutely to die for, so I’m just over the moon.”
