Archie Comics and Riverdale fans had a field day when the name of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s baby, Archie, was announced on May 8. The CW series made headlines worldwide because of its lead character’s new royal namesake, and the network proudly displayed some of them during its upfront presentation today.
The CW President Mark Pedowitz went further. “We think we know where Harry and Megan really got their baby’s name,“ he said on stage at the New York City Center before showing everyone “the evidence” on the big screen behind him to big laughs. (you can see it above)
