The wait for baby Sussex is finally over.
On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, welcomed their first child, a baby boy weighing 7 lbs. and 3 oz. On Wednesday, the couple made their first appearance together as a family in Windsor, later revealing in an Instagram post the baby’s name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
The name choice comes as a surprise as British bookmakers saw the most bets placed on more traditional British royal names, like Albert, Arthur, Alexander, James and Phillip. However, the Internet has already started having fun with the name, many making references to the titular character of the Archie Comics series and the CW show it inspired, “Riverdale,” whose main, red-haired character is named Archie Andrews.
