half hour with the royal baby. Archie Harrison mountbatten-windsor already making history as the first biracial baby in the family. Linsey Davis is on the scene in Windsor. Good morning. Reporter: Good morning. Meghan Markle had once said motherhood was on her bucket list. That's certainly another box she gets to check and that concept reminded me of a story she once shared when she was in the seventh grade and said she struggled with which racial box to check on a school form and that when she went home and told her dad he said if that ever happens again you draw your own box. She has certainly done that and then some. It's the historic photo decades in the making, four generations gathered around the royal family's newest member Archie Harrison mountbatten-windsor, the first multiracial heir in the history of the house of Windsor. Queen Elizabeth beaming as she's introduced to her eighth great grandchild who is now seventh in line to the tloin with prince Philip and duchess Meghan's mother Doria rag land adoringly looking on. Seeing the queen, the proud great grandmother alongside Doria from a totally different culture and background proudly standing next to baby Archie signified a new era for the royal family. Reporter: To introduce her son to the world the duchess who often makes a statement wore a sleeveless trench dress by grace Wales bonner who is also biracial.

Reporter: Meghan proud of her background writing in "Elle" magazine in 2015 while my mixed heritage may have created a gray area surrounding my identification, to say who I am, to share where I'm from, to voice my pride in being a strong confident mixed race woman" saying in this bbc interview that she and Harry were just people in love. I'm just really proud of who I am and where I come from and we have never put any focus on that. We've just focused on who we are as a couple. Reporter: Their wedding last year unlike traditional royal ceremonies with bishop Michael scurry, the first African-American leader of the episcopal church with a fiery sermon. The late martin Luther king Jr. Once said and I quote, we must discover the power of love. Reporter: Of course, Britain's kingdom choir performing a Goss tell rendition of "Stand by me." For young biracial people in the uk and around the world Meghan has become a role model. It's been a dream so it's been a special couple of days. We're just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy. Reporter: That same choir was outside of Buckingham palace earlier this week singing a lullaby for baby Archie that was written especially for him. We all are just witnessing firsthand this modernization of the royal family. George. Okay. Linsey, thanks. Amy is back fresh fro Windsor.
