Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess declined to specify where their son was born when they introduced him to the world on May 8 at Windsor Castle. Many royal watches suspected Markle had a home birth. But the birth certificate states Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born May 6 at the American-owned Portland Hospital in Westminster, PEOPLE confirms.

“Parenting is amazing,” Harry said to reporters as he held Baby Archie in his arms during his public debut. “We are just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy and to be able to spend some precious times with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up.”

Meghan described being a mother as “magic.”

“I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy,” she said.

Archie is Queen Elizabeth II’s eighth great-grandchild and seventh in the line to the British throne. His parents are reportedly determined to provide him with as normal a childhood as possible; opting not to give Archie a royal title. He will likely be referred to as Master Archie as the grows up.
