"He must've done", he shared, reports People. Ladbrokes said in a press release that before the name announcement Alexander was thought to be the most likely choice, followed by James and Arthur.
Now that we've had 24 hours to digest the news and the glorious photos of Archie and his parents, it's time to examine the name. In January, a woman told The Sun that she saw Meghan and Harry's nephew (Prince William and Kate Middleton's eldest child) Prince George playing with sister Charlotte and their maternal grandmother Carole Middleton near her home.
After the chosen name was revealed on the Sussex Royal's Instagram account, many followers were quick to pick up on it. Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who was born on Monday, is seventh-in-line to the British throne. The middle name Harrison means "son of Harry". "I knew they would go out of the box", royal historian Marlene Koenig stated.
"It may well be it's a name that Meghan is familiar with and again that's why they are using it", said Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty royal magazine. The Queen is a stickler for tradition (as her title demands!), and while she may have co-signed Meghan's decision to keep the birth private, a media hoodwink of this level seems a bit much. But the Sussexes have not confirmed if the baby's standalone name is Archie or if it is short for Archibald. Another tweeted,"I love the name Archie Harrison, he's the only royal without a stuffy name".
Princess Anne famously turned down Queen Elizabeth's offer to give her children Zara and Peter Phillips royal titles, while Prince Andrew requested titles for Beatrice and Eugenie. He was good cat too, one that Meghan still talks about to this day. And, according to SheKnows, this had many theorizing that Meghan had already had her baby.
Instead, he will be referred to as "Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor".
