Dairy Queen is changing the name of a popular treat to celebrate the birth of the royal baby.

On Monday, the fast-food chain announced it had temporarily renamed its Mini Royal Blizzard to the Royal Baby Blizzard to celebrate the arrival of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son.

Dairy Queen’s line of Royal Blizzards contain gooey centres hidden inside the soft-serve dessert. Currently, the chain is serving the Royal Reese’s Brownie Blizzard, which mixes peanut butter cups and brownies into the soft serve and has a peanut butter center, and the Royal New York Cheesecake Blizzard, which combines cheesecake and graham in vanilla soft serve and contains a strawberry center.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child, a boy, on Monday.
