Royal Baby Born | English Reading Exercise

On 6th May, 2019 Megan Markle, after a long, anticipated wait, gave birth to a baby boy: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Archie is the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s first child. He was born at 05:26 (BST) and weighed 7lbs 3oz. Huge crowds gathered outside Buckingham Palace to welcome baby Archie into the world!

Interestingly, Prince Harry and Megan have broken the mould by choosing non-traditionally royal names to name their bouncing baby boy. The name Archie means “brave” and some sources have been quick to point out that it is a very close anagram of ‘Rachel,’ Megan’s first name. Harrison, originally used as a surname, actually means “son of Harry.” Mountbatten-Windsor is the surname created in 1960 to combine the surnames of the Queen and Prince Philip when they got married. Altogether, creating a truly unique name.

You may have already noticed that baby Archie doesn’t have an official royal title. By royal decree, only the children and grandchildren of a monarch can have a royal title. The Queen made an exception and broke this rule by giving William and Kate’s three children royal titles! Archie will therefore simply be Master. This means he will lead a privileged life but not be bound by royal duties like his cousins.

You may be wondering, if Master Archie will ever be King! Succession to the British throne is by direct bloodline, making baby Archie currently 7th in-line to the throne. After his father, his three cousins, Prince Luis, Princess Charlotte and Prince George respectively, his uncle Prince William and his grandfather Prince Charles. All after the Queen of course, who is the longest-reigning British monarch and has reigned for a whopping 67 years!
