Archie?

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

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

Love it. My friends have sons named Archie and Harrison and they're very happy with this news.

Apparently, Archie (an abbreviation of Archibald) means "bold" and Harrison is, quite simply "Harry's son"

Re: Archie?

It's unusual, but they're an unusual couple and trying to buck trends. It's their baby and he's 7th in line, so why not? I like the name Archie. Sounds like a free spirit.

A daughter should be named Carol or Caroline which means "born to rule, power behind the throne"!

Re: Archie?

To add a bit of spice to the rumour mill, it seems Prince Georgie's nickname is also Archie.

Why name a child after a sitcom character?

Re: Archie?

Because Megan wears the pants and it was her favorite comic strip when she was younger

But she looks REALLY fat now. What happened. Too many scones?

Well, Prince Harry does look like Archie and Meghan looks like Veronica, so why not?

Prince Harry seems a likeable enough guy. Was wondering whether he has the same father as his brother?

Grow up. She just grew a nearly 8-pound human being for 9 months and then pushed it out her nether regions. Women's bodies undergo a tremendous transformation in pregnancy, and they don't bounce back to being a supermodel in 2 days.

Fair enough, let's see you grow a human being for 9 months in your belly and see how good your arse looks. Besides, aren't big butts "in" these days?


...on second thought, let's not see your arse under any circumstances.

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.
