Twitter Snarks After Prince Harry and Meghan Introduce Baby Archie: Please ‘Let the Next One Be Named Jughead’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duke and Duchess of Sussex, officially announced the name of their baby boy Wednesday, introducing the world to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The newborn son is the seventh in line to the throne and has one of the longer and more uncommon names of the royal family. Many people reacted to the name by poking fun at the overtly high class Britishness of the baby’s name or joking about what could have inspired the name.


However, a number of Twitter users noted the new royal baby shares a name with Archie Andrews, the main character of the CW show Riverdale. The show is inspired by the long-running Archie Comics franchise.
