Prince Harry and Meghan reveal baby son's name

British royals Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have finally announced the name of their baby son -- he will be called Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The smitten parents described Archie as their "little bundle of joy" on Wednesday (May 8), as they showed him to the world for the first time at St George's Hall in Windsor Castle -- where they held their wedding reception just under a year ago.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DUCHESS OF SUSSEX, MEGHAN, SAYING (ASKED WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE A NEW MOTHER): "It is magic, it is pretty amazing.

I have the two best guys in the world, so I am really happy." The new baby is attracting a great deal of attention.

He's the first mixed-race child to be born into a senior position in British royalty in recent history.

But he is also entitled to hold U.S. citizenship through his mother Meghan -- an American former actress.

Although Archie will be seventh-in-line to the British throne, he won't automatically be a prince -- or known as "His Royal Highness" -- unless the Queen issues a decree.

Archie was born in the early hours of Monday morning, but few other details have been given about his birth.
