On May 6, 2019 the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their first child, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor into the world. He arrived at 5:26am (BST) weighing 7lb 13oz. His name was announced on May 8. He also holds dual citizenship as a member of the United Kingdom and United States of America.

He is the first half-American heir in the British royal family, but not the first biracial member in the line of succession. In 2004 Lady Davina Windsor, the great-granddaughter of George V, married Gary Lewis a New Zealander of Maori descent. Their children Senna and Tāne were born in 2010 and 2012 respectively and are the first proven biracial members in the line.

 

As a great-grandchild of Queen Elizabeth II, he is currently seventh in line to the throne of Great Britain. He is heir apparent to his father’s Dukedom of Sussex, Earldom of Dumbarton, and Barony of Kilkeel.

 

Since his father is the second son of the Prince of Wales, he is not a British prince. Only the children of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge are titled prince or princess.
