The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child, a son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, at 5:26 a.m. on May 6, 2019. The couple revealed the baby's arrival in an Instagram post shared hours later.

The duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle gave birth to Archie at Portland Hospital in central London and not at hers and Harry's home on the Windsor Estate, as previously speculated. The royals kept this detail under wraps until May 17, nearly two weeks after Archie was born.

Do you know Meghan Markle allowed to go home less than 5 hours after giving birth to baby Archie. Not just Meghan Markle Catherine or Diana also went home as soon as they could get showered up and hair and makeup done so they could leave the hospital for a press call looking like someone else had the baby.

However, hospital births are the contemporary tradition. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, delivered all three of her children the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London — the same place Princess Diana gave birth to her sons.
