Prince Harry Only Had 2 Hours of Sleep during Archie’s Birth

He may be a royal, but Prince Harry is just like any other ordinary new father, who experienced both the feelings of happiness and tiredness at the same time.

The Duke of Sussex did not rely on media announcements alone, instead he spoke to the press to confirm that he and wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, had welcomed a son on Monday morning, the 6th of May. It was obvious he was still on a baby high, with joy reflecting in his eyes.

The new father is known for being accommodating, so when the cameras of the press stopped rolling, he spoke candidly about his recent experience. Prince Harry shared that he only had 2 hours of sleep, something that many new fathers would relate to, staying awake through the many hours of labor Meghan endured and then for the actual birth. Nevertheless, the famous royal did not appear to be affected at all by his lack of sleep.

Before being candid with the media, Prince Harry stepped in front of the camera looking giddy and fresh-faced, as he announced that their highly anticipated baby had arrived, and that it was a baby boy! The 34-year-old royal confirmed the news saying that their newborn son is healthy and doing well, as was his wife.

Prince Harry did not stop there, he even called the birth the ‘most amazing experience’ he has had, and proceeded to say that it was beyond comprehension how women are able to endure the pain of childbirth. Nonetheless, the duke did not confirm his son’s name right then. It was only later that it was declare that their son was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Welcoming a son is a surprise for both Harry and Meghan, as they chose to not find out the gender of their baby until he was born. Princess Diana’s youngest son said that he would again see the media again in two days time, and true to his words, he and Meghan presented their newborn son and release his name then.
