This intro to the new royal baby was markedly different from when Kate Middleton and Prince William had baby Louis last year. If you remember, Kate had posed with her newborn on the steps of the hospital a few hours after she delivered her third baby.

Meghan Markle, in a refreshing departure from the norm, chose not to do a same-day royal baby photo op.

This little one's intro to the world instead, came 2 days after his birth, with daddy Prince Harry cradling him in his arms.

Here's wishing baby Archie and his family lots of love and happiness!
