We Wonder If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Were Inspired by Lisa Vanderpump and Shannon Beador for their Royal Baby's Name
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor sounds a bit familiar...
Shortly after making his public debut and just days after being born, we officially know the name of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son. Drumroll, please... It's Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor — which, by the way, is a totally adorable moniker for a tiny little member of the British royal family.
And we couldn't help but notice it felt, well, familiar to us. Like we've heard aspects of that name before. Archie... hmm... and Harrison... double hmm... and then we realized it: His name is similar to those we've seen on Real Housewives.
As you might recall, Lisa Vanderpump has a Pomeranian named Harrison (whose name was actually inspired by Prince Harry so HOW WEIRD IS THAT?), while Shannon Beador has a golden retriever named Archie.
Now we're not saying that somehow the new parents were influenced by The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and The Real Housewives of Orange County ladies when thinking up names, but we do find the coincidence, at the very least, really, really cute.
By the way, welcome to the world, little Archie Harrison.
