Duchess of Sussex's touching post-birth interview

Twitter Turns Prince Harry's 'Two Weeks' Royal Baby Comment Into Conspiracy

Baby Sussex Photo: First Look

Baby Sussex's name was a big surprise - especially since Archie wasn't a top contender amongst those betting on royal baby names. That moniker is more easily interpreted, since the term quite literally means "son of Harry" and originated in the Middle Ages. Their Royal Highnesses' son weighs 7lbs. 3oz.

When asked who the baby looks like, Prince Harry joked that his son was already growing facial hair like him. "I'm sure they will be thrilled", she said.

The Duchess' estranged father Thomas Markle sent his congratulations to the couple in a statement to The Sun and added that he's "proud that my new grandson is born into the British royal family".

Meghan declared motherhood to be "magic".

"The staff here are over the moon", Richard Taylor, director at G.H.Hurt & Son tells PEOPLE, adding: "We thought Harry and Meghan might do something slightly different because their modus operandi has been to do new things so I think it's really nice that they are also keeping some family traditions as well".

"It's pretty wonderful. I have the best two guys in the world, so I'm really happy".

"The Duchess and baby are both healthy and well, and the couple thank members of the public for their shared excitement and support during this very special time in their lives".

China on Thursday appealed to the United States to meet it halfway to salvage a deal that could end their trade war. He said if the two sides didn't make a deal, there was "nothing wrong with taking in more than $US100b a year".

Asked who the baby takes after, Meghan said: "We're still trying to figure that out".

"Another great-grandchild!" Harry exclaimed of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh's eighth great-grandchild. He has African-American heritage through his biracial mother.

The royals are no strangers to nicknames (Prince Harry's real name is Henry and Kate Middleton's full name is Catherine) - and Princess Charlotte has a sweet moniker at home: Lottie.

Harry is due to return to royal duties Thursday, attending an event in The Hague for the Invictus Games sports competition for injured service personnel and veterans.

"It's great. Parenting is fantastic".

"Obviously thrilled, absolutely thrilled, and obviously looking forward to seeing them in the next few days", William told reporters.
