Philadelphia (CW Philly) — Welcome to the world, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor! After much anticipation, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their baby’s name last week, and the interesting moniker has Riverdale fans wondering: Do the Duke & Duchess of Sussex watch The CW series?
Not only does the royal baby share the same name as Riverdale’s protagonist, Archie Andrews, but there’s a chance he’ll be a redhead like his father and Jughead’s BFF. So, of course, it wasn’t long before the internet erupted with Archie memes.
