The newest royal baby has been welcomed into the world this week. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their newborn son on Monday.

The name carries with it a lot of meaning in the hearts of comic readers all around the world. While the baby may not exactly have been named after taking into consideration the name of the titular character from Archie Comics but that is most likely what people will immediately think of when they hear about it. Of course, when people behind Archie Comics heard of it they certainly weren’t going to let this correlation slip by without saying something about it.
