Meghan Markle's half-sister Samantha reacts to royal baby Archie

In a statement posted on Instagram yesterday afternoon, the couple said: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pleased to announce they have named their first born child: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor".

Some of the standout social reactions to Harry and Meghan's baby's name came from Archie comics, the popular spin-off series, "Riverdale" and fans of the franchises.

The moment Markle's pals heard the infant's name announced, they reckoned that the moniker could be a nostalgic reference to the pet kitty, who was also a favourite of Meghan's Mother, Doria Ragland, 62. In his tweet, he claims to have asked them to name the next royal baby after their favourite Star Wars character. They met the Somerville-Ryan there, and Prince Harry stopped in his tracks when he found out their son's name was Archie, the family says.

She says she is a little anxious that there's gonna be a wave of baby Archies, but, that 'I think they look like a real cute couple and I love that name, ' she said.

However, a royal title for Archie is still not impossible. Majority are older than their royal counterparts.

"He also told me he's really happy that his son is so far very quiet" he added. The name literally means "son of Harry" and is probably a befitting middle name for the little one. The new parents couldn't help but express their joy as they spoke about their new son, who has taken a non-traditional name.


The birth of Prince Louis of Cambridge, the third child of Prince William and Kate Middleton, reportedly generated $125 million for the British economy alone last April.

Pals of Meghan Markle claim Archie Windsor's name was picked in reference to her pet cat, and a United States comic she used to collect.

The baby was never eligible to be a Prince of the United Kingdom as he Harry will never be King.

Meghan Markle's estranged half-sister told "Daily Mail TV" she knows the baby will grow up "to be an exceptional man".

The newborn will also for the next few years be referred to as Master Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
