Yes, we know, time flies extremely fast! It's like you blink, and it's a whole new day in front of you.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first-time kid — Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor — a week ago. On May 6th, the elated parents had their son, who has already altered their lives to the core. How amazing is that, guys?
A private citizen?
Following the first official photocall of the Sussex family-of-three, royal correspondent Roya Nikkhah has opened up that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have huge plans for their son.
According to The Times, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex plan to raise Archie as a "private citizen," unlike the royal cousins.
The Sussexes are not using a title for their son in the hope that he will live a more normal life.
The reason for privacy is the desire to shield the newborn from the media spotlight. So, Archie isn't royal...yet. It will be up to Meghan and Harry, and probably future King Charles to decide the future for the baby.
According to Roya Nikkhah, Prince Harry wants to take an equal part in raising his son and therefore, plans to be involved in Archie's life as Meghan.
What do royal fans think about all of this?
Some people find it hard to believe Meghan and Harry's son will be a real "private citizen" due to the royalty status of the entire family, whereas others were truly supportive.
It’s certainly fueling the conspiracy theories— Karen Yossman (@KarenYossman) May 12, 2019
A private citizen, whose male-line grandfather is the next king, whose parents are senior royals (even becoming more senior in the next reign) and who was presented to the public in St George’s Hall, the most prestigious room of Windsor Castle. 😄— ♔ RoyalArjan ♔ (@RoyalArjan) May 12, 2019
Yes, needlessly. It seems odd to be publishing pictures of Archie's feet on @instagram while declining to provide basic details, such as place of birth— Richard Eden (@richardaeden) May 12, 2019

I applaud Harry and Meghan making Archie a “private citizen”. We need the rest of the royals to follow suit so we can stop the civil list and the expense of police protection.— Alun Roderick (@m2ahr) May 12, 2019
As a private citizen, I assume he will not be afforded any privileges not available to all. pic.twitter.com/JIILPHqh1w
Meghan and Harry are sending a very strong message that he is theirs and not public property.— MichaelbAnderson🇺🇸🏳️🌈 (@MichaelbAnders4) May 12, 2019
What's your point of view about the situation? Do you think they will find this line between privacy and media limelight?
