Baby Archie Unveiled for Prince Harry's First Father's Day

6/16/2019 7:22 AM PDT

Get a load of baby Archie, everyone, the freshly-minted son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The kid's a month-and-a-half old and finally, we're able to see his face in all its glory.

Happy Father’s Day! And wishing a very special first Father’s Day to The Duke of Sussex © SussexRoyal

A post shared by The Duke and Duchessx of Sussex (@s sussexroyal) on

The pic was posted on the Royals' Instagram page for Harry's very first Father's Day.

Still not crystal clear how Meghan and Harry came up with the name Archie ... to be precise, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie is kinda like the United State's Attorney General ... he's 7th in line for the top spot. Archie wasn't in public view during the Queen's birthday celebration earlier this month, so this is really the first time we've seen his full face.  

Nevertheless, he's a big deal in the UK. BTW, the first official interracial baby in the Royal Fam.

Happy Father's Day Harry ... your kid is super cute.  

Anthony Joshua All Smiles With Prince Harry ... After Upset Loss

6/12/2019 7:57 AM PDT
Breaking News

Anthony Joshua didn't look like a guy who just lost all his championship belts on Wednesday ... grinning from ear-to-ear with Prince Harry at a charity event!!

The British boxing superstar was back in the gym to support the launch of the Made By Sport campaign, an organization created to help youth connect with sports in disadvantaged communities.

Joshua had a blast with the kids in attendance ... giving out some boxing tips and chatting it up with his buddy, Prince Harry -- an avid boxing fan himself.

The duo have a history of being bros ... and Joshua even once joked that he'd crash Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding to be his best man.

Of course, AJ just lost his WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles after Andy Ruiz Jr. pulled off one of the most shocking upsets in boxing history on June 1.

As for Ruiz, he hopped on a private jet and visited the Mexican president on Tuesday ... so everyone's hangin' with power people.

Donald Trump No Hard Feelings, Harry??? 'Nasty' Meghan Remark Was Really About ...

6/5/2019 7:06 AM PDT

President Trump wants to make it perfectly clear -- he didn't say Meghan Markle IS nasty ... he said she WAS nasty when she spoke negatively about him.

The Prez was interviewed by Piers Morgan on "Good Morning Britain" Wednesday during his 3-day trip to the UK, and Piers pressed him on his thoughts about the Duchess of Sussex and asked whether he thinks she is, in fact, "nasty."

Trump says no, and explains he didn't know Markle had spoken badly about him in the past ... but he's not surprised. He says when he found out he responded, "Wow, I didn't know she was nasty" ... but meant to essentially say, "I didn't know she was nasty about me."

Got that? Watch the clip ... judge for yourself.

Regardless, the Prez says he hopes Meghan enjoys her life and called her "very nice" before pointing out he doesn't actually know her ... and slamming the media for embellishing the "nasty" controversy.

Then, Piers asked the big question -- was it awkward meeting Prince Harry in the midst of the hullabaloo? Not at all, according to Trump ... but he admits he never addressed the topic with Meghan's royal hubby. He says Harry couldn't have been nicer, though ... and he thinks he's great.

Meanwhile, Trump used his time over the pond to insult Hollywood royalty on Twitter -- Bette Midler. Wonder how it would go if Donald ran into her husband?

President Trump Yes, Queen ... We're Here for Our State Visit

6/3/2019 8:02 AM PDT

Donald Trump and Melania are finally greeting Queen Elizabeth in the UK ... and the pomp and circumstance is quite the show.

The Prez and First Lady arrived at Buckingham Palace Monday for lunch with the Queen and several other royals, including Prince Charles and Camilla. Trump will reportedly also mingle with Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry ... but NOT Meghan Markle, who's on maternity leave taking care of baby Archie.

Of course, it's quite possible Markle is simply avoiding the U.S. president, who she slammed and called "misogynistic" in 2016 when he was a candidate. Trump responded to news of her comments this weekend by saying ... "I didn't know that she was nasty."

POTUS also kicked off his trip to London by insulting the mayor, Sadiq Khan, on Twitter upon landing ... calling him a "stone cold loser" and saying he's "foolishly 'nasty' to the visiting President of the United States."

Remember, Trump was supposed to make this visit in February 2018, but canceled amid widespread protests in the UK.

It's all water under the London Bridge apparently, because QE2 rolled out the red carpet and the usual ceremonies ... including firing off cannons and a performance of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Her Majesty will host a fancy dinner Monday night for the Trumps, which is expected to be accompanied by mass protests outside. Many protesters have already arrived.

The President's 3-day visit coincides with the 75th anniversary of D-Day, and he's also expected to meet with outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May.

Kate Middleton 'Back to Nature' Garden Becomes Princes' & Princess' Playland

5/19/2019 3:15 PM PDT

Kate Middleton designed a garden that she hopes will inspire others to get their kids outdoors and playing -- and her kids set a great example by leading the way on that front.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had themselves quite a day exploring Kate's new "Back to Nature" garden that she's officially unveiling to the public in a few days as part of the annual Chelsea Flower Show. The point of all of it ... early childhood development and getting folks (especially kids) reacquainted with the great outdoors. A great cause, really.

Before she opened the doors to everyone else, she had Will bring their own kiddos by to scope the joint out. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the newest addition, 1-year-old Prince Louis, definitely had their run of the place ... it's practically a kid's playland paradise.

Charlotte and Louis rode the rope swing, which looks super fun ... and Georgie boy dipped his toes in a running stream under a baby bridge. We don't usually say this ... but damn, this is cute.

Seeing how they got a little cousin now who'll be able to play along soon enough -- ya gotta imagine the Royals might be here quite a bit in the near future.

Can't blame 'em ... this thing is quite a sight to behold.

Meghan Markle Actress No More ... Officially Just a 'Princess'

5/17/2019 12:49 PM PDT

Meghan Markle 's dozens of acting credits have gone missing -- at least they have in the UK, where her official J-O-B is now simply ... "Princess," according to her firstborn's birth certificate.

Baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's birth certificate was published Friday, and revealed he was born May 6 at Portland Hospital in Westminster, London ... most of which we already knew. What really caught our attention was what Meghan listed as her occupation: Princess of the United Kingdom.

That's it. Fits neatly on one line. Big change from her old gig -- y'know, acting -- which required dozens of lines.

You'll recall one of Meghan's very old acting resumes was unearthed last year showing her acting credits. She was a struggling actress, at that point, with her only film work being in Ashton Kutcher's "A Lot Like Love," where she played Natalie the "Hot Chick."

Some of her other credits included several TV roles and tons of theater gigs -- but she went on to have even more success ... including her breakout role as Rachel Zane in "Suits." At last check, she has about 30 credited roles under her belt.

Not that any of that matters now, apparently ... since having baby Archie, 7th in line to the UK throne.

BTW, "Princess" is listed as her occupation -- just as Harry's is "Prince" -- but don't get it twisted. Their royal titles are still Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

Andy Murray Knighted At Buckingham Palace ... Sir Andy!!!

5/16/2019 11:25 AM PDT
Breaking News

Call him Sir Andy Murray now ... 'cause the tennis superstar was at Buckingham Palace on Thursday -- receiving his knighthood from Prince Charles himself!!

The 32-year-old actually learned he'd be receiving the honor back in 2016 ... but he held off on having the ceremony until this week because of his tennis schedule.

What exactly does knighthood entail for Murray? Nothin' crazy ... the award is just a way for the Royal Fam to recognize the 3-time Grand Slam champion's achievements on and off the court.

It's kind of like when Donald Trump gave the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Tiger Woods

But, Murray was still stoked about the honor afterward, saying, "I'm very proud to receive it. It's a nice day to spend with my family."

It's also a good moment for Murray given what he's been through this past year. Remember, he underwent hip surgery just a few months ago to try to save his tennis career.

Murray seems to be recovering well, but unclear if he'll be ready for Wimbledon this summer.

By the way, Murray is reportedly the first tennis player EVER to be knighted ... Pretty cool, right???

Meghan Markle Nephew Tyler Dooley Nearly Snaps Ankle Off in Drunken Brawl

5/12/2019 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The gruesome injury Meghan Markle's nephew suffered is definitely NOT for the squeamish ... and TMZ's got video of it in the aftermath of a massive drunken brawl.

It all went down a week ago at around 11 PM outside the Wonder Bur Lounge in Grants Pass, Oregon, where Meghan's nephew, Tyler Dooley, somehow got dragged into a street fight that ballooned 20 people strong ... this according to a police report obtained by TMZ.

It's unclear what triggered the fight, but cops say Dooley was shoved to the ground and somehow broke his left ankle in spectacular form.  If ya got the stomach for it ... check out the vid. 

You can see Dooley tried walking it off ... but he can't stand on his own two feet cause his ankle's mangled. Cops say he was so drunk he didn't feel the pain from his ankle practically snapping off. Dooley was taken to a hospital and nobody was arrested.

Witnesses tell us as he was being wheeled inside the ambulance he said, "I have a Rolex. I can pay for this." Again, he was drunk.

Dooley, of course, is part of Meghan's extended family. You'll recall he and his brood traveled to London last year ... even though they weren't invited to Meghan's Royal wedding.

We've reached out to Dooley to get his side of the story, so far, no word back.

Harry, Meghan, William, Kate No Royal Family Feud Here ... Coming Together To Help People In Crisis

5/9/2019 4:18 PM PDT
Breaking News

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are joining forces with Prince William and Kate Middleton to cast their rumored differences aside in the name of helping others ... namely, people dealing with mental health issues. 

The British Royals just launched a mental health crisis hotline, dubbed Shout ... a free text messaging service aiming to provide 24/7 support for people in the UK who are going through a rough patch. 

The fact Harry and Meghan are working alongside William and Kate is huge news ... because it comes in the face of swirling rumors about possible feuds and rifts within the Royal family. 

As for the new text messaging helpline ... it's powered by a team of volunteers trained to create a safe space for people burdened by mental health issues. The conversations can be difficult, as volunteers must listen without judgment on a range of issues, including suicidal thoughts, bullying, self-harm, abuse, relationships and sexuality. 

That last topic is super interesting as it relates to the Royals ... they don't usually talk about issues with sexuality. 

Shout launching in the United Kingdom comes on the heels of Harry, Meghan, William and Kate making a commitment to their Heads Together campaign, which supports conversations on mental health. 

There's no rest for the weary ... Harry and Meghan are jumping right into a new project only days after she gave birth to the couple's first child, baby Archie.

Prince Harry Model Father Back on His J-O-B With Gifts for Archie!!!

5/9/2019 7:19 AM PDT

Prince Harry's paternity leave is already over, and he's back on the job ... as a model.

While Master Archie's back at the palace filling diapers, his pops is all smiles in the Netherlands ... happily showing off some baby gifts he'll be bringing home. Harry's back on the road -- just 4 days after Meghan Markle birthed their first child -- to promote his Invictus Games, which will be held in the Netherlands next year.

Harry's Invictus coworkers hooked him up with a onesie for Archie, and they also gave the Prince his own Invictus windbreaker ... complete with highlighted letters spelling out, "I Am Daddy." Just in case he forgets.

No doubt, Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will be lauded with tons of gifts in the coming days. Yeah, he's only 7th in line to the throne -- right behind his dad -- but he's Harry and Meghan's first, and the first American/British royal.

Invictus is an athletic competition for injured soldiers from around the globe which the Duke of Sussex created back in 2014.

Looks like Harry's already settling into juggling work and fatherhood.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Here's Archie!!!

5/8/2019 9:05 AM PDT
Breaking News

9:05 AM PT -- If you're the betting type, and the type who loves a long shot ... you might have just cashed in big time. Ladbrokes, an online betting site, had Archie odds set at 100/1. Congrats if you just came up. 

And the Palace wants to make it clear ... his name is Archie, NOT Archibald. 

BTW ... the middle name of Harrison is quite fitting. The root of the name is Henry's son, and Henry is Harry's actual birth name. So, there ya go. 

8:42 AM PT -- Welp, it's official. Baby Sussex is now Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

What a mouthful. 

All of Queen Elizabeth's descendants take the family name Mountbatten-Windsor -- which is a combination of the Queen's official last name, and Prince Phillips' surname.

The long wait to see the royal baby is over ... but the wait to learn his name continues.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made an appearance outside of Windsor Palace with their newborn son and the royal couple was all smiles as they introduced their baby to the world.

When asked how the baby has been, Meghan told reporters, "He has the sweetest temperament. He's really calm."

"I wonder who he gets that from," Prince Harry responded with a smile as he cradled "Baby Sussex" in his arms. Meghan called them her "two best guys in the world."

The couple plans to bring the baby to meet the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh this afternoon.

In the days leading up to the big reveal, oddsmakers in the UK were taking bets on what names the couple might choose ... with Spencer a strong favorite. Spencer was the maiden name of Princess Diana, Harry's mother.

Other names heavily favored included the more traditional Alexander, James, Arthur and Philip.

Oddsmakers were uncertain if the couple would go with a traditional name ... or buck tradition and go their own way as they have in other ways. For now ... everyone waits. As we reported ... Meghan gave birth at 5:26 AM Monday, London time to a healthy baby boy weighing in at 7 lbs. 3 oz.

Harry announced the happy news, telling the media he was thrilled and in awe over what women go through during childbirth. He said they were still thinking about the name even though they had some extra time, and also ... he couldn't stop smiling.

Kensington Palace revealed in October 2018 that Harry and Megs were expecting ... just about 5 months after their star-studded wedding ceremony.

The couple's kiddo is 7th in line to the throne, right behind his father.

10:53 AM PT -- Michelle Obama is chiming in on the good news too. The former First Lady tweeted her excitement to the new parents, saying she can't wait to meet the new royal bundle.

6:45 AM PT -- Meghan has given birth to a royal baby boy ... 7 lbs., 3 ozs. The palace says the new prince arrived at 5:26 AM Monday, London time.

No name for the little guy, yet. Harry says they're "still thinking about it" ... even though the baby arrived a little late. 

Pass the royal baby powder! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are officially in the home stretch ... she's in labor with their first child.

Buckingham Palace announced Monday the Duchess of Sussex had gone into labor.

Kensington Palace announced in October 2018 Harry and Megs were pregnant. They moved quickly ... the pregnancy news came about 5 months after their star-studded wedding ceremony.

Meghan continued her royal duties as the couple went on tour, but ultimately had to cut back ... especially on-air travel.

When it came to her baby shower ... that was quite a spectacle too. Tons of celeb friends came out in force to shower her with love ... from Amal Clooney to Abigail Spencer.

Because we know you're wondering ... the kiddo will be 7th in line to the throne, right behind Papa Harry, the Duke of Sussex. The new Prince will also bump Prince Andrew -- the second son of Queen Elizabeth -- down a notch.

Story developing ...

Meghan Markle Unwelcome Mat for Dad ... For Birth of First Child

4/24/2019 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's father won't be around to spoil the joy of her firstborn ... because he's still iced out of the Royal Family.

Sources close to Thomas Markle tell TMZ ... he's not traveling to London -- or making any plans to do so -- despite the fact his daughter is due to give birth to her and Prince Harry's child any day now. Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, arrived this weekend.

We're told, unlike last year -- when health issues kept Thomas from attending the Royal Wedding and giving Meghan away -- the reason he's not visiting his daughter and meeting his new grandchild is because he's squarely persona non grata.

Our sources say Thomas has been unable to make inroads reconciling with Meghan because he believes she's in a "cone of silence" ... but he hopes their relationship can be repaired after she has a baby.

As you'll recall ... Thomas seemed to get shunned by the Royals shortly after the wedding for going to the media, a move perceived by many as self-serving. There's been a lot of speculation about the father-daughter relationship since then, but it's clear they haven't been on speaking terms since August.

Regardless, we're told Thomas, of course, wishes Meghan and Harry the best and hopes for a safe delivery of a healthy baby ... and he's glad Doria's made the trip to be by her side.
