Baby Archie introduced as Prince William and Kate Middleton's new son after royal family website goofs up
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle weren't the only people who didn't get enough sleep leading up to their child's birth. After the new parents revealed that they were going to call their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the royal family set to work on making the baby have its own lineage through an official page on the royal family's website.
The gesture was indeed a sweet one coming from the royal family members, but there was one major error that stuck out like a sore thumb. Owing to a major goof-up, the royal family's website introduced the newborn as the “first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge”, i.e. Prince William and Kate, instead of Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
As soon as royal watchers noticed the mistake on the website, they couldn't help but pick on the silly error committed by the royal family's media officials. “I think I speak for all of us who have been working on the Baby Sussex Story when I say that mistakes happen to the best of us when we’re tired!” wrote one user, who screenshot-ed the typo on the website.
“Hmmmm, another new twist,” joked someone else. “Has anyone informed the Cambridge I have a funny feeling they don’t know.” Another cheeky user wrote, "Someone must tell Katherine she just had a baby without her consent."
In spite of the error, which has since been edited by the concerned team, a lot of people were quite understanding about the mix-up, acknowledging how these things happen sometimes. “It’s all good. We know what was meant,” wrote one fan, while another said, “S— happens, we’re not robots, we’re only human”
On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped out for the first time with their newborn baby boy at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle, where they had their wedding reception last May. Meghan was visibly glowing as she stood beside Harry, who held their baby boy in his arms.
Asked what it’s like being a new mom, Meghan said: “It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I have the best two guys in the world, so I’m really happy.” She went on to say that her son “has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm,” — to which Harry quipped back, “I don’t know where he gets that from!”
When asked about parenting, new-dad Harry said: “It’s great. Parenting is amazing. It’s only been two and a half days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.”
