Archie Comics honors royal baby after name announced

By Alexandra Heilbron on May 8, 2019 | 9 Comments

Archie Comics honors royal baby After the name of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son was announced earlier today, Archie Comics tweeted a tribute to the royal baby, which read, “I’m baby.”

The tweet earned a slew of feedback, including a clever tweet from @sleekysammy, who wrote, “Ohhh…🤔 it all makes sense now 😁 and included the comic book displayed at left, which shows Archie, his wife Valerie and their red-headed baby with the caption, “A Star is Born!”

In case you haven’t heard, the newest member of the Royal Family was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor — and his parents were quick to point out that his name is Archie, not Archibald. Archie is seventh in line to the throne.

The name “Archie” is now trending in the Number 1 spot on social media worldwide.

    Funny that my first thought was of Archie Bunker rather than the comic book character.

    Not fond of the name, but all that matters is that Archie, the beautiful little boy is healthy and that he has very loving parents. Wishing them all the best in life.

    So Archie Andrews married Valerie from “Josie and the Pussycats”?

    Prince Harry & Meghan Markle are a kind young people who have endeared themselves to their fans by performing many acts of community service. Far from the sarcastic character of “Archie Bunker,” “Archie” is a comic book character who has entertained and brought joy to several generations of readers. I cannot understand the negative comments above. The young couple deserves our congratulations on the arrival of their new son!

    Archie is perfect but who is jughead? The woman who disavows her own father and adds to the comedy of being a charitable and loving person or a whimp of a husband who abides by her manupations
