The royal family, including Harry's maternal family, expressed their joy but this video from Disney was the icing on the cake.
The buzz around Harry and Meghan has finally shifted to the newest member of the British royalty. While some wondered if the duke and duchess would name their baby after Lady Diana if it was a girl, others were guessing possible royal names if it was a boy. The birth of baby Sussex, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, on May 6 has resulted in an outpour of love and best wishes for the young royals.
On Monday, Prince Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, took to Instagram to post: "Congratulations to The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the safe delivery of your baby boy!"

In a statement from the palace, it was said that the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were first to be informed and are "delighted with the news". Charles Spencer, Harry's maternal uncle, tweeted: "Really very lovely news today - many, many, congratulations! (Good to have another Taurean in the family...)", according to HELLO Magazine.
Among all the wishes from the family, there also was a special and sweet wish from Disney. They created a beautiful hand painted Winnie the Pooh comic to wish the royal couple. "The beginning of a grand adventure… Congratulations from Disney to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and The Royal Family on the arrival of Archie Ha rrison Mountbatten-Windsor!" it was captioned. It was created by the senior principal artist, Kim Raymond.
In the video, Winnie the Pooh can be seen carrying a book with a crown on it through his beloved Hundred Acre Forest. He jumps across a stream and comes upon the Windsor Castle. After he enters the castle, we see Pooh plopped down next to Meghan Markle, who is seated in a highback chair. She flips through the book that Winnie was carrying while Prince Harry stands next to her on the other side. In front of the three of them lies baby Archie in a cradle. The cradle also had the same crown that was on the book.
Meghan looks happy and poised while going through what can be either a book of bedtime stories or a royal family album while Harry looks down into the book. He too looks happy and relaxed. The heartwarming tribute was not the only of its kind on the birth of baby Sussex. Artist Autumn Ling shared a beautiful recreation of the Sussex family portrait with Meghan's mother and the late Princess Diana pictured in the same frame.
Harry said they were “so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy”, and Meghan added she had “the two best guys in the world”. Harry was recently seen in an Invictus Games jacket that also said: "I AM Daddy". He was on an official trip to Netherlands for the games, which he created, during which he was given a cute onesie, a rattle and other games for the little child.
In the only appearance Meghan has made so far, she said, "It's magic, it's pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I'm really happy." "He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm," Meghan Markle said. "I don't know who he gets that from," Prince Harry added.
The new mother seemed very protective of her little son and kept touching him throughout the event while Harry cradled him in his arms.
