Why is Baby Archie's last name Mountbatten

However in 1960, the Queen budged and declared her and Prince Philip's direct descendants were to be distinguished from the rest of the royals by taking on the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.

Perhaps that famous American comic book character, Archie, a ginger just like Prince Harry, is behind the name?

Along the way, it seems like he couldn't help but let everyone know that he is a proud dad, embracing his new role with a monogrammed Invictus jacket reading, "I AM DADDY".

Making his first royal engagement just three days after the birth of his "dream" first son with wife Meghan, Harry travelled to the Netherlands to launch the countdown to the games. Picture: PA Harry beamed as he received the gift.

While riding around on a bike with fellow attendees at the celebratory event, Harry can be seen wearing a black zip-front windbreaker adorned with the slogan, "INVICTUS FAMILY", on it in white lettering.

The Olympic-style Invictus Games are the brainchild of Harry, who served with the British military in Afghanistan - but they have also been a recurring theme in Harry and Meghan's relationship.

Baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor is the "most peaceful and placid child", a royal source has revealed.

The new royal dad was visiting The Hague when he was presented with a cute Invictus Games babygrow by Dutch Princess Margriet.

Meghan and Harry both opened up about becoming parents during the photocall at Windsor on Wednesday.

Speaking to the press, Meghan said: "It's magic". "It's magic. It's pretty fantastic and, I mean, I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy", Markle said, while Prince Harry explained that they are "so thrilled", before discussing his baby boy's appearance.

This has so far ruled out all of the couple's children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren who either have official titles or are descended through Princess Anne and her ex-husband Mark Phillips, and have instead taken his name.

Harry added: "Everyone says babys change after two weeks - montioring the process - changing every day".
