Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Named Baby Archie After A Cat!

Meet the latest addition to the royal family!

On Wednesday, BBC Radio DJ Danny Baker apologised for a "racist" tweet depicting baby Archie as a monkey.

The name Archie, generally short for Archibald, means "genuine" or "brave". However, it's common that the closer you are to the throne, the more traditional your child's name must be.

The friend also said that Archie was the name of a former cat of hers, a pet she is said to have loved very much.

But in a few months, Harry and Meghan will step out again with baby Archie for his christening.

Meghan's moggy, who is thought to have died while she was at college in IL, is said to have been named after a comic book character, flame-haired teen Archie Andrews, who she used to read about in comics collected with her father Thomas Markle.

Hours before the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed their son to the world for the first time.

It has been a tradition for royals to dip into a pool of historic names.

Another victim was Jamal al-Badawi, the accused mastermind behind the deadly bombing in 2000 of the USS Cole . He was killed in Syria by an R9X fired from a Central Intelligence Agency drone in 2017.

Aside from the new royal baby's likely boom to the United Kingdom - and likely even the US - economy, Archie himself is worth a significant amount. He was good cat too, one that Meghan still talks about to this day. As we know from Harry's meeting with the press (via Sky News), their kiddo was "a little bit overdue", so Meghan may have been taking every caution regarding her baby's impending arrival. Now that Archie has arrived, Meghan is taking some time off with the baby, but Harry was quick to get back to work.

The Queen and Prince Philip met this week.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex with their baby son, who was born on Monday morning, during a photocall in St George's Hall at Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

The baby boy - who is seventh in line to the throne, behind his dad - basically started impacting the United Kingdom.

Given Meghan and Harry's insistence on privacy surrounding the birth, it's tempting to believe that they pulled off a gambit of this magnitude.

"LET'S GO! Young Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor!"

What about a royal title?
