Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, Earl of Riverdale.

The new royal baby has a name - and Hiram Lodge is probably seething!

Two days after the birth of their son, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally revealed the long-awaited name of their newborn baby boy - and it was absolutely none of the ones we thought they might pick. His full name? Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Yes. Archie. Riverdale stans, we've finally got a claim to the throne.

Harry and Meghan haven't divulged the meaning behind the name yet. His full first name is Archie, not Archibald (like Andrews). And Harrison appears to be quite literal in meaning. Harry's son. Duh. Mountbatten-Windsor is the official surname of the royal family, for those not in the know.

KJ Apa is shaking. Archie Comics just lost their number one spot in the Google ranking. And of course, everyone is making the same joke... Let the memes begin!

Before we get into the memes, we have some questions: Has Meghan been binge-watching Riverdale during her maternity leave? Did Harry just confirm his son's ginger status by bestowing him with the name of the two most famous male redheads in existence? But also WHY is his middle name Harrison and not Andrew? A missed opportunity, truly.

And most importantly: at age 16, will he choose to play sports or music? OR BOXING?

KJ Apa is absolutely SHAKING.

Harry and Meghan said "Archie Andrews Rights!"

This is fake news. The Queen actually loves Riverdale and is rooting for Alice and FP to finally become a couple. She also ships Choni.

Meghan has a very good theory that the Gargoyle King is actually Clifford Blossom, who has been alive this whole time.

Can't believe Archie's Red Circle video reached Harry and Meghan's Twitter timeline.

Casting directors are already looking for famous hot dads aged 40+ to play Veronica's despicable father in season 19 of The Crown.

Casey Cott might have a point here. Baby Kevin. Bless.

Give him a bank holiday!
