Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor is here! Since Meghan Markle gave birth on May 6, people all over the world have been on their toes waiting to hear what she and Prince Harry named their first child, and now we can finally put a name to that adorable face. Baby Archie’s name was revealed after he met his great-grandparents Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip as well as his grandmother Doria Ragland on Wednesday. Though Archie will not have a royal title, he will be referred to as Master Archie, and we will be “awwww”-ing until further notice.
While the Duke and Duchess of Sussex might be fans of Riverdale, there’s a deeper meaning to their baby’s name. Archie means true, bold, and valuable; Harrison means son of Harry. As expected, it didn’t take long for the internet to react to Master Archie’s name. From Chrissy Teigen to Archie Comics, people are gushing over the name with tons of Riverdale, Gossip Girl, and more references!

The Royal Family Was Out In Force to Celebrate the Queen’s Official Birthday – Yes, Even Meghan Was There!
On a typical sunny but drizzly Saturday in London, the British royal family gathered at Buckingham Palace for the annual Trooping the Colour event, a celebration of the queen’s official birthday which begins with a military parade.
Trooping the Colour also includes a fly-past by the Royal Air Force, which the royal family watches from the balcony of the palace. Last year was filled with plenty of sweet moments, particularly from the little cousins like Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Savannah and Isla Phillips.
As well as watching the fly-by, the family rode past the crowds, either on horseback, or in carriages. This year the Queen rode in her carriage alone, followed in the second carriage were the Duchess of Cornwall, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle, who surprised us all by taking a break from maternity leave to attend this important family event.

Meghan Markle is bringing out her own charity clothes line
Whether she’s donning high-end, high street or a family heirloom, Meghan Markle’s sartorial prowess knows no bounds – and now she’s set to give us a slice of her style via her own fashion line.
Get your credit cards at the ready, people, because the Duchess of Sussex is set to launch a charity fashion line, which she revealed in the September issue of British Vogue.
The mother-of-one has officially announced she will be partnering with British brand Marks & Spencer to launch a capsule collection of workwear, as well as with her fashion designer friend Misha Nonoo, John Lewis and Jigsaw.
The collection will aid Smart Works, a charity that supports unemployed women trying to enter the workforce. The charity has over 2,000 women every year across two offices in London, with over one in two clients succeeding at their job interview.
Writing in Vogue, Meghan said: “When you walk into a Smart Works space you’re met with racks of clothing and an array of bags and shoes. Sometimes, however, it can be a potpourri of mismatched sizes and colours, not always the right stylistic choices or range of sizes.
“Taking the idea further, many of the brands agreed to use the one-for-one model: for each item purchased by a customer, one is donated to the charity. Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story, it reminds us we are in it together.”
But this is not Meghan’s first venture into the fashion industry, while working as an actress on the popular drama series, Suits, before her marriage to Prince Harry, she had her own clothing line with local retailer, Reitmans. Ever since the Duchess came into the public eye the ‘Meghan Markle Effect’ has taken the world by storm.
The fashion line is said to release later in the year, with the reports stating that further details will be revealed in fall.
