Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced to the world on Wednesday, May 8, that they have decided to name their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, after the Duchess of Sussex gave birth to the baby boy on Monday, May 6. The couple introduced their newborn baby boy at a photocall at Windsor Castle and announced his name following his introduction to his great-grandmother and Harry's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

"This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty The Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle. The Duke of Edinburgh and The Duchess' mother were also present for this special occasion," the announcement read in the Instagram caption of the adorable photograph.

Baby Sussex's name was far from what anyone could have ever expected, since people were rooting for a royal name passed down by generations of British royals like "Arthur", "Alexander" or even "Philip". But now that the name of the royal baby is out, so are loads of Archie memes on social media.


While a few people made light of the unusual name choice in general, a lot of these memes were inspired from 'Archie comics' and the famous character from CBS' hit show 'Riverdale'.

7. People even dragged footballer Archie Manning into the hot mess!
