Whoops! Did Prince George reveal royal baby Archie's name months ago?

Whoops! Did Prince George reveal royal baby Archie's name months ago?

Prince George is known for being cheeky, but when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex revealed the name of their newborn baby boy, it had people thinking back.

After all, the Prince had given away that name months ago.

Baby Sussex’s name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, but Prince George claimed that as a nickname for himself a few months ago in January.

All the way back in January, a woman revealed to the Daily Mail about how she ran into Prince George while walking her dog, where he revealed that he has a nickname for himself. It just so happened to be Archie.

"Just to be friendly, I engaged in a bit of small talk, and I asked George what his name was, even though obviously I knew it," the woman told the Daily Mail.

"To my astonishment, he said, 'I'm called Archie,' with a big smile on his face. I don't know why he calls himself Archie, but kids often play with their names, and I think it's lovely."

There were murmurs that Harry and Meghan knew the gender of their baby before the 37-year-old gave birth. 

Maybe Prince George heard the Duke and Duchess of Sussex discussing baby names in the lead-up to their new son arriving?

With Archie making his debut to the world, he’s definitely fitting into the land of the royals.
