This took up about half the BBC World News yesterday. And led the news on the Canadian and American networks. Does anyone else consider the coverage of the birth of someone who will be 7th in line to the British Throne and is unlikely to be heard from again until the next Royal Wedding or Funeral just a little overdone.

Big deal. Children are born everyday. Oooo but because it's the product of some silly little and entirely useless/pointless anachronism, suddenly it's news worthy.

I don't think you could accuse Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor of being inbred. Being 1/4 black in genetics is about as diversified as you can get for the royal family.

That's why ya gotta keep an eye on him. Mixed-race boy who will live on government handouts for his entire life. Multigenerational welfare recipient.

It'll be the ruin of the Empire, I tells ya!

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

Archie is a common name in the UK but not in the US. So I wonder if Harry chose the name.

Is that their only accomplishment since they were wed?? One 'rave concert' got 1/2 the girls in Hinton knocked up, so much so the City council had a meeting about the 'lack of virgins' (whatever the hell that means).

Did the child consent? (or is the Queen banking on some new 'royalty fees')

No, not at all. It is a big thing in the mother country and we all love dear old England. Congradulations are in order I would think.

For a country who has gone to war and fought for their Queen or King the Royalty is a big deal. I think we are so casual now days It is difficult for some of us to respect tradition. And who couldn't respect a country and their traditions that produced the great Winston Churchill? May their flag long fly.

I respect Harry for being an authentic warrior in a family of dress-up poseurs (Phillip excepted too).

BBC radio personality fired over royal baby chimpanzee tweet

LONDON — A BBC DJ was fired Thursday after using a picture of a chimpanzee in a tweet about the royal baby born to Meghan the Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry.
Danny Baker, who had a weekly show on BBC Radio 5 Live, tweeted Thursday that he has been fired after posting an image of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee dressed in clothes and the caption: “Royal baby leaves hospital.”
The tweet came on Wednesday, the same day Harry and Meghan posed for photos with their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The tweet was seen as a racist reference to baby Archie’s heritage. His grandmother Doria Ragland is African American.
Baker, 61, said the posting had been meant as a gag, tweeting late Wednesday that it was “supposed to be (a) joke about royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race.” The post has since been deleted.
“Enormous mistake, for sure. Grotesque. Anyway, here’s to ya Archie, Sorry mate,” he tweeted.

BBC Radio 5 Live controller Jonathan Wall said in an email to staff that Baker had shown poor judgment.
“This was a serious error of judgment and goes against the values we as a station aim to embody. Danny’s a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us,” Wall said.
On Thursday, Baker insisted he is not racist and attacked the BBC for its handling of the situation. He said the call to fire him “was a masterclass of pompous faux-gravity.”
When Harry was first dating Meghan, his office released a scathing letter in which he complained about sexist and racist coverage of Meghan, who at the time was starring in the TV show “Suits.”
The flap over Baker’s tweet came as Harry took a break from parental duties to travel to the Netherlands to promote the 2020 Invictus Games, an international competition he founded for injured service personnel and veterans.
Harry grinned and made funny faces for the cameras as he held up a tiny baby outfit given to him by Prince Margriet of the Netherlands.
Baby Archie was introduced to his great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Wednesday.

Actually, I noticed it the first time that I heard it but I'm having difficulty convincing my wife that it doesn't come from somewhere else. Sometimes, it's right in front of your face ...

It is thought that Archie has been named after Major Tom "Archie" Archer-Burton, Prince Harry's hero and mentor in the army who also travelled with Harry through Africa on a charity expedition.

Puzzles the hell out of the Yanks.

You will never see women's names like "Jemima" "Maisie" "Dinah" being used in the US either. They are considered to be "slave names" and the gaping wound of slavery has never gone away, there.

Archie is quite popular here.

I was expecting this half-American kid to be given a common American name that is rare in Britain - Chad, Bud or Chuck.

Not used at all, here ... zero, zip, nada. Nor is Julian, Giles or for that matter, you don't see a lot of "Harry's" either.

Yeah ...Yank names you don't see here, either ... Biff, Scooter, Billy-Bob, Chad, Chuck, Bud (I've known one each of the last two in my whole life time)

There are many ancient native British names hardly used in America but are common in Britain: Arwen, Owain, Lowri, Bryn, Ffion, Laith.

Other British names rate in North America: Isobel, Jemima, Lottie, Angus, Archibald, Barnie, Baxter, Barnaby, Clayton, Bailey, Edwin, Harvey, Fergus, Kit, Rupert, Percy.
