You have a very warped sense of humour.

You are being completely inappropriate and I take offence to your comment. It's not only ignorant but also sexist.

You once asked people to take pity on you and give you green blobs. I'm quite disgusted with your attitude right now.

Please, Me Gain is NOT royal is any way, she has parachuted her way in, maximising whatever she can and good for her, but all this fuss over what ?


"Woman has baby" ?


It's hardly a novel conception

My comment has to do with calling a woman who has just had a baby "fat." That's just horrible. There's nothing funny about it and the excuse of calling it "a joke" is just a disingenuous attempt at disguising a sexist attitude towards women.

You honestly should just crawl away from this thread because every comment you post just digs you into a deeper hole.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor... now that's a rather unusual name.

Perhaps the likeness between Harry and the comic strip was the inspiration?

A first name beginning with an 'A' would mean when names are listed alphabetically it would be either at the top or close to.


I suspect that Archie might have been a Mountbatten historical pet name.


It was very common in the olden days when babies were given family names, another name was used for the latest addition to avoid confusion, sometimes that pet name stuck within family, neighbours.

I've had to google the cartoon character that Americans keep refering to. Archie is currently a popular name in the UK, and that's what surprised me most. It's usually the Royal family that revive traditional names, not follow a current trend, with the notable exception of Zara.

When William, Harry and George were born, their names were relatively unpopular for baby boys, but each of them inspired a revival in the popularity of their names, particularly Harry. I don't know any Harrys about my age, but an absolute shedload under 33.

Archie was No.13 in the Top 100 most popular names for British baby boys 2018, and Harrison was No.26.

When I first read this I thought you were suggesting that Megan and Harry were perusing one of those books of baby names and got bored halfway down the first page!

I can't help wondering if they chose the name ages ago, and Prince George let it slip back in Jan... https://www.thecut.com/2019/01/princ...ie-report.html

You can't suggest cannibalism, it's sexist.
