The new Royal baby has a name: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The name comes just hours after Britain's Prince Harry and wife Meghan gave the world the first glimpse of their "dream" newborn boy on Wednesday.

In a post on their Instagram account, featuring Meghan holding the baby and showing the child to Queen Elizabeth II, an accompanying message read:

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

"This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion."

'A dream'

Harry, 34, and Meghan, 37, emerged in front of the cameras inside Windsor Castle to show off their son born on Monday morning, ahead of introducing him to great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

"He's just been a dream," said a smiling Meghan, in her first public comments since giving birth to the seven-pound, three-ounce (3.26-kilogramme) baby, who stayed firmly asleep during his public unveiling. 

"He has the sweetest temperament. He's really calm," added the Duchess of Sussex, as Prince Harry cradled the newborn, wrapped in a white blanket, by her side.

Royal watchers have been desperate for a glimpse of the new baby, who is seventh in the line to the British throne, ever since the couple announced his birth to their 6.5 million followers on Instagram with the message "It's a BOY!"

But they disappointed those keen to know what they will call him, with neither new parent mentioning a name on Wednesday. 

Instead, Harry focused his comments on life as a proud dad.

"Parenting is amazing," he said, the day after brother Prince William -- two years his senior and with three children of his own -- had jokingly welcomed him to the "sleep deprivation society that is parenting".

"We're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy."

Meghan added: "It's been a special couple of days."
