England's newest royal has a name: it's Archie Harrison. His parents, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, chose to reject an official royal title for their baby, who was born on Monday, May 6.

On Wednesday, hours after introducing their son to the world, the royal couple revealed his full name as Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Royal reporter Rebecca English confirmed that Archie will not have a title. "I've had it confirmed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will have no title. He will simply be Master Archie," she tweeted.

Barring a major tragedy, Archie has no chance to become king in his lifetime. But he could become a prince if his parents so choose.

Royal reporter Victoria Murphy noted that "It's worth remembering that when Prince Charles becomes King, Archie will be eligible to be styled as a Prince should Harry and Meghan wish this."

Archie's royal subjects have trouble believing Harry and Meghan turned down a title for their newborn.

According to King George V's 1917 letters patent, the oldest son of the Prince of Wales's oldest son (so Prince George) is entitled to be styled His Royal Highness and a prince. The other grandchildren of the Prince of Wales are not.

According to Yahoo News, in December 2012, the Queen issued a new letter patent, ruling that all of William and Kate's children, not just George, will hold the title of HRH (His or Her Royal Highness) and would be styled as princes and princesses.

The ruling does not apply to the children of Prince Harry, who have no chance at ascending throne. Harry's children will likely be styled as an earl, such as Archie Harrison, Earl of Dumbarton. That might be the reason why Harry and Meghan turned down the title.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Archie, huh.......Archie. Ummmm.....okay, not my child. I guess Earl Archie would sound too weird so I would turn it down too. Best of luck to the new family.

    I like the name Archie...its cute and honestly it not like he's next in line to the throne...we have enough Jaydens, Cayden, Jace's, Kaylee's, Neveah's, and whatever else made up names in the world...I just hope he has red hair might as well with a name like Archie...

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile...they wanted that baby to be name Daquan so bad...

  • Society has changed

    ? Gurl, Daquan Temozeray

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I would propose that Harry and Megan chose not to have the title so as to not restrict their son. Normal type of life as possible

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Their will never be ENOUGH Jaydens, Caydens, Jaces, Kaylees, or Neveahs,

  • Guess Who

  • Peppermint Patty

    Who cares....phaedra coming back to RHOA-dun dun duuun.....megan does NOT consider herself black..I cant bring myself to gaf

  • Guess Who

    Maybe he will be betrothed to a woman named Lady Edith or something, hell IDK. Those titles are confusing! What is the difference between a Princess, Dutchess, Lady, Countess? Are they ranked in order of importance?

  • Nita Pie

    I thought they would've named him Spencer for Diana's maiden name. He gone be like the cartoon Archie with red hair and freckles lol

  • Nita Pie

    Thats that black in her

  • Nita Pie

    How is she not considering herself black and the only parent she acknowledges is a BLACK WOMEN?

  • Yup, I said it

    That picture of the Queen meeting baby Archie?? She knows she's ready to retire but she will not give Camilla the satisfaction of being a queen.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    He's so far down in the line of succession that there is nothing positive about him having a title.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    There's enough in my city...throw those silly azz names away...I know a Jayden, Hayden, Cayden, Brayden....whats next Sayten... Chile Boo...that wave is overprocessed and lazy...

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    dead

  • Ebony Starr

    I was thinking it was Archibald and the called him Archie for short. Harry is Henry Charles Albert David.

  • Soda

    Lol @Sayten! ?

  • She.Is.Not.Ready

    I hate my ghetto name....dunno wtf Mama was thinking...she named my brother Jonathan (nice normal name) my name is synonymous with that Brawley case from the 80's. Fml.

  • Neva RuthLess

    Spencer would have been a great name for him.

  • Neva RuthLess

    You know heauxs be bitter for no reason. I believe it’s jealousy mixed women get hatred thrown at them for no reason even the ones with black moms. I say this as a full black woman.

  • LeeSeeCee

    Thank you... Please say it a little louder for those folks in the back..

  • Navybeans95

    Love how rebellious they are...you gotta do your own thing in life or it gets boring...

  • JayBird

    Tawana? smh.

  • LeeSeeCee

    That is a cute little munchkin!!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    My first thought would be Archie Bunker that racist white guy from All in the Family. The one George Jefferson use to argue with. lol

  • JayBird

    I despise the 'den names. Add on Davion, Tayvion, Sayvion. Barf!

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Yep! That's probably what he like the most about her, she was different had baggage and problems just like everyone else.

  • Society has changed

    I like Tawana better than Towanda!!!

  • Soda

    I don't like boy names that end with an A, like Devonta or Deonta, but are pronounced Tay. ?

  • Topic Influencer

    I have a ghetto name and I love Archie lol

  • stav

    All the titles are meaningless so would it matter one way or the other, even the title of Queen is meaningless.. they hold no power. The "Monarchy" is a novelty act!

  • Gowns. Beautiful Gowns

    They gonna wait until Elizabeth goes on to glory before they address that baby as a prince.

  • Paula Hameen

    Of course she acknowledges her mother, but she said herself she was bi racial, not black!

  • Sassie

    I believe what u said is the reason Harry turned down that title. Harry has been in the royal family since birth...he knows how all that shit goes and he doesn't seem impressed.

  • Nita Pie

    Thats because she is Biracial, why would she call herself anything but? She is both black and white, so where is she not considering herself black?

  • davine puddin

    Jamal daquan spencer

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Prince Harry dick print on full display as he shows the baby.. Thats all I really care about .. Hope he keeps showing it loud and proud !!!!

  • CookieMobster

    Chile Archie is a terrible name. I can just hear ole Edith on that tv show say "OH ARCHIE"

  • Phillybruh

    He won't need a title he has the Windsor last name, that's all he'll ever need.

  • Trace da Ace

    I agree!

  • Trace da Ace

    Their baby....their business...he so adorable...cant wait until his features come in fully....

  • Society has changed

    Then thank goodness for some of us folks (yes my name is ghetto too) being open minded!

    Archie is cute, and he is adorable!

  • Alextra Ballard

    I even like his middle name Harrison

  • Society has changed

    Right! My son is named Cameron! I was not doing no tays at all!

  • Alextra Ballard

    It’s something behind the name Archie Harrison Mountbatten...

  • onelove

  • Lady Elle

    ?????

  • onelove

    she is letting them know she is doing it HER WAY!!.. i know she is glad they will be moveing to africa for 2 years..

  • Chicagowise

    There's no way in hell that Meghan named that boy Archie! The queen gave that baby that old, dusty, prehistoric name!

  • TheOwley

    Some people need to apologize to this woman. First they accused her of using a surrogate. Are her feet swollen enough for the naysayers. Then they accused her of using her pregnancy to acquire royal titles for her children. Some were encouraging Kate to have a 4th kid to make sure Harry's kids would absolutely never have a chance to ascend to the throne from his 7th position. The Queen could have made an exception and given the child HRH / Prince. She will likely not live long enough to see a second baby from Harry. Lastly they refused the 5 baby names for royal kids. That's a grand screw you to everyone including the RF. Way to go for the Sussex. And Archie, I like it, it's fresh.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL

  • facingrealit1

    He won't need a title as he will forever be known as Archie - Harrison (Harry son) LOVE IT!

  • facingrealit1

    Yes - meaning Harry's son!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Even though Archie will never be King. He will still be by far the most visible and focused on the rest of his LIFE!

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Lol *pool hall blues

  • justlooking

    You go girl, you secured you role PERMANENTLY. Come through with the tanned baby boy!!!!!!

    Congratulations to my favorite Prince and Meghan

  • justlooking

    OH MY GAWD...You are crazy.

    LOL

  • bemetoo

    ????

  • We Can Do This

    Hey, Leroy is French for The King.

  • WhoKnew

    Or giving her son the name of Sire. Webster's defines Sire in this way.

    "a male parent of an animal, especially a stallion or bull kept for breeding."

    Really, BeYawnFail. That's what you named your kid?

  • guest

    Lol

  • Peppermint Patty

    You answered your own question. But just to clarify she identifies with white culture as does her black mother who conditioned her to do so. If you look at her old pictures you'll see she had a nose job....she plays up her appeal to white men. Long and short of it...she ain't comin to the cook out and if i ever see her and harry hit the electric slide I'll take it all back....

  • Peppermint Patty

    Agreed maam. these mulatto's get it from all sides at times.... But as a full black woman you know we get it worse....I actually marvel at the beauty of all women. What I dont like is sedity which some of them have b/c of dat colorist/good hair syndrome some of them tend to develop....

  • rockstar2142

    She seems like such a lovely lady. It was such a shame how the press treated her over there. Happy she had a healthy baby though!!!

  • TheOwley

    The press, the comments were OTT, just vicious. When they tell you race had nothing to do with it, then you know it's all about race and the audacity of her marrying their precious prince and into their RF.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    When U translate it over...it turns into Leonte'.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Believe that!! Free of charge.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    She'll live til 105 just to make sure.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Archie, Veronica and who was the other guy?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Perfect

  • ClaireHuxtable

    L0l@ if i ever see her and harry hit the electric slide I'll take it all back....!

  • the guest

    I agree.

    But i wanted the first multiracial royal to have a royal title. Lord Archie has such a beautiful ring to it.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    *smh* NOnono! Alla us caint have ghetto names!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Leonte'.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I just remembered Jughead!!

  • LadyDujour

    POSSIBLE HEIR TO THE THRONE OR NOT..DONT CARE..THEIR BUSINESS

  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    Her mom about to get white washed out of the history books just llike the corrupt blk Moores who civllized Trump and his boys thus opening Pandora's box upon the earth.

  • dontgetblocked

    Queen Charlotte was the first interracial royal.

  • TheOwley

    Only when grandpa becomes king. The fact that it was not done at birth might make the Sussex turn it down altogether. Now his cousins will forever remind him he's a second class royal because kids will be kids. I think Harry may feel like a second class citizen in that his wife is not being given respect particularly by the British press and the folks over there. I don't think these people think ahead and what a lovely gesture that would had been by the Queen.

  • Jussjess25

    The baby has his nose.

  • Jussjess25

    That fake ass throne

  • PrettyNetty28

    Love how Meghan still has that swell stomach. Not fighting for a “SnapBack “.

  • Eileen

    She is looking blacker and the baby favors dada

  • Eileen

    she placed her child at a disadvantage. Every title, name, position that is available she should have taken it (dumb feminist American) and yes her little son will always be viewed as 2nd rate because his momma overode dada if he had married a white brit do you think the white brit would have shunned the unique opportunities for their child weather he ascends to the throne or not. Americans gotta always prove a point. The civil rights legislation: every bill in that legislation was passed and bm and bw still marching and begging for programs and stuff instead of taking full advantage of it...smh and her is ms. megan using the same principle, the plate is set before you and you push it away for a saucer that holds nothing! smh

  • Eileen

    thats be-yawn-fall for ya..LOL yall know she can barely speak well or conjugate noun-verb but she is one hellva entertainer.

  • Eileen

    Katie get readie!

  • Eileen

    biracial kids change throughoout their lives its that gene mixing thang going on and I tell you dis! she is looking more blacker than ever

  • TheOwley

    Funny how people have accused her in the worse way of being a gold digger and now she is proving them wrong. She is learning. She just wants the Prince and now her baby. The Brits are upset their vilification of this woman is coming undone, particular that she was using a surrogate. Anyway, I think they will both skip out on the RF and do their thing, will keep their kids out of it. They should have been more welcoming of her, particularly William and Kate from the jump.

  • missmiami305

    Horrible name. Sounds like a ginger tho. Now....GO AWAY!!!!

  • missmiami305

    ??

  • suganspice68

    Is that pic on the internet? I never seen it

  • suganspice68

    His mama was treated like a dog by the RF;her only joy in her life were her two boys.

  • The Chosen 1.

    yes, the black features are always going to show up and show out.

  • The Chosen 1.

    it is a horrible name. just think if she had named the baby LaDarian, Quentin, JaKendall, etc. that really would have been some shuggity shiite.

  • Guess Who

    Why would she be glad they're moving to Africa? To get away from his family?

  • Ronnie

    Other names that were consider:
    Tyrone, Kareem, Tarique, Antwan, Leroy, LePrince, LeDukon. I forgot the rest.

  • Ronnie

    Too funny!

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Tell me more.

  • Raquel

    Just because she is biracial doesn't mean they were going to allow her to actually choose the name SHE wanted. lol Lest we not forget this is an all white establishment. lol

    So, I see her surrogate had the baby. Congrats. Didn't want to risk those black genetics showing up and having an afro with dark skin standing next to the queen (and no, I ain't capitalizing her title; F her). lol

  • KJBibleOnSlavShips

    The black Moores ,some of our ancestors ,once ruled Europe when the Neanderthals didn't know how to read or write.They civilized the white race and taught them technology, astronom,y mathematics, carpentry chremistry ,physics etc... against the will of THE MOST HIGH .
    The Most High told them not to asimulate with them but they did.Now they out of the caves and f!cking up everything.
    The black Moores loved cave Becky more than the black woman thus here we are.

  • Lunatic Frank

    who looks black?
