Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have named their baby son Archie, the couple announced today.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have named their baby son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the couple announced on their Instagram account.

Harry and Meghan shared pictures of their first photocall with their baby son on the @SussexRoyal Instagram account.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share their first public moment as a family," the post said.

"They are so incredibly grateful for the warm wishes and support they've received from everyone around the world, since welcoming their son two days ago."

The post included one colour shot of the couple walking into St George's Hall, Windsor Castle, with Harry, carrying his son in his arms, and two black and white images of the family during their appearance, taken by Chris Allerton for @SussexRoyal.

Allerton was the couple's private wedding party photographer, and took the picture of the newlyweds watching fireworks in the grounds of Frogmore House at their evening reception.

The black and white image was used for their 2018 Christmas card.

In a statement posted on Instagram, the couple said: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child:

"Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

"This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess' mother were also present for this special occasion."
