Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby son, makes his front page debut on Thursday.

The infant royal appears across the papers after he was introduced to the world by his proud parents at Windsor Castle.

The Daily Mail, the Daily Mirror, the Daily Express and The Sun and the Metro all dedicate their front pages to the baby, who was pictured with the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, and grandmother Doria Ragland.

Archie appears on the front of The Guardian, although the paper leads with warnings that whole communities may need to be relocated in coming decades due to the threat from flooding caused by climate change.

According to The Times millions of children attend schools in Britain with dangerous levels of air pollution.

US secretary of state Mike Pompeo invoked Margaret Thatcher in his warnings over the UK’s potential adoption of Huawei technology, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The i says the US has warned Prime Minister Theresa May that the special relationship may be in peril if the UK allows the Chinese tech giant to help build Britain’s 5G network.

After Mr Pompeo met Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt in London, the Financial Times leads with warnings by Europe and the US to Iran over its nuclear activities.
