While making a TV appearance, Gayle King excitedly made her speculations about the possible meaning of the Sussex baby’s name, Archie.
The famous TV personality is known to be a part of Meghan Markle's elite circle of friends. Just like every royal fan, King voiced her thoughts on the hidden meaning behind the name “Archie.”
“I thought his middle name Harrison, means son of Harry. Arch means connection or something I read. They picked a great name. They picked what works for them. But I loved it.”
Gayle King is a close pal of the power couple, and fans will, therefore, think her words to be very important. Ever the supportive friend, the 64-year-old gushed about the couple’s adorable choice of the name while speaking at the CBS Upfront presentation in New York. She said:
“I love the name Archie; it’s so interesting that everybody’s weighing in on the name Archie. It’s nobody’s business. I’m sure they don’t care what we think about the name – they both like it.”
King then went on to laud the pair’s obvious adoration of each other, saying that they have “the country cheering them on.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be celebrating their very first year of marriage very soon. To honor the momentous event, King revealed that there would be a CBS News special titled “King Meghan and Harry, Plus One.”
With Archie's birth, the program is sure to become a fan-favorite! Why everyone enjoys a real-life fairytale couple! So far, Harry and Markle have maintained privacy when it comes to their personal life, and even King finds this very advantageous.
As always, the new parents got the entire media in a frenzy after they revealed that they had chosen to name him, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
With the couple making no move to explain the meanings behind the names, fans deemed it a noble task to do so. The definitions of the names have thus, been revealed with Archie, short for Archibald, meaning “distinguished and bold” and the middle name, Harrison meaning “son of Henry” or “son of Harry.”
There is still no formal statement from the couple to establish the meanings, and avid fans, like Gayle King, are still making guesses at hidden meanings other than the obvious aforementioned.
