Here’s what Prince Archie looks like now

Plus, see every photo Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have shared of their son…

In the world of British royalty, every tiny detail about the newest members captures public interest, and Prince Archie Harrison Sussex (formerly Mountbatten-Windsor) is no exception.

Born on May 6, 2019, to Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, Archie quickly became the subject of fascination and speculation.

However, despite his royal lineage, glimpses of Archie have been relatively rare, leaving many to wonder: What does Prince Archie look like now?

Who is Prince Archie?

Prince Archie Harrison Sussex is the first child of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, making him sixth in line to the British throne.

Born at the Portland Hospital in London, Archie’s arrival was met with immense joy and media frenzy, with well-wishers eagerly anticipating his first public appearance.

However, unlike the more traditional approach taken by previous generations of the royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been notably protective of their son’s privacy.

They have opted for a more guarded approach, choosing to shield Archie from the intense scrutiny of the media spotlight. This decision reflects their desire to provide him with a more normal upbringing away from the relentless glare of public attention.

Moreover, the couple has been vocal about their concerns regarding the intrusion of paparazzi and media outlets into their personal lives.

This wariness stems from the intense media scrutiny and negative press coverage they believe Meghan, in particular, has faced since joining the royal family.

By limiting Archie’s exposure to the public eye, they hope to shield him from similar experiences and allow him to grow up in a more secluded and secure environment.

Of course, the Sussex’s do occasionally share updates about Archie and his little sister Princess Lilibet with the public. Most recently, Harry told Good Morning America in February 2024:

“The kids are doing great. The kids are growing up like all kids do, very, very fast. They’ve both got an incredible sense of humour and make us laugh and keep us grounded every single day, like most kids do. I’m just grateful to be a dad.”

What happened to Prince Archie?

Since his birth, Prince Archie has made only a handful of public appearances, most notably during his christening in July 2019 and in occasional glimpses shared by his parents on special occasions such as birthdays.

How old is Prince Archie now?

As of February 2024, Prince Archie is four years old.

Will Archie become Duke of Sussex?

The question of whether Archie will inherit the title of Duke of Sussex is a subject of speculation among royal watchers.

Traditionally, the title of Duke of Sussex is passed down to the eldest son of the current Duke, which would make Archie the rightful heir to the dukedom.

However, it remains to be seen whether Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will choose to bestow this title upon their son, or if they will opt for a different path as they continue to forge their own unique identity within the royal family.
