We’ve finally learned the name of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bundle of joy! The Duchess of Sussex gave birth to her son in the early hours of May 6.
Two days later, we got our first look at the little boy ahead of his first big meeting with Queen Elizabeth. Later the same day, Harry and Meghan revealed they had named their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
If the name Archie sounds somewhat familiar to fans, it’s because this isn’t the first time we’ve heard it leave royal lips. Back in January, the Sun reported that Prince George and Princess Charlotte were out with grandmother Carole Middleton when they saw a woman walking her dog in the park.
The woman let the young prince pet her dog and engaged in conversation with the 5-year-old.
“I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it,” she recalled. “To my astonishment he said ‘I’m called Archie’ with a big smile on his face.”
We’re not sure if Archie is an actual nickname George likes to go by or if he was just playing pretend. But it is totally possible he overheard his uncle and aunt discussing it as a potential option for their baby-to-be and picked it up from there.
“I don’t know why he calls himself Archie, but kids often play with their names and I think it’s lovely,” the dog walker said at the time.
