When it comes to the naming of royal babies, Queen Elizabeth II traditionally gives her stamp of approval. This has led to speculation regarding whether or not she favored Archie Harrison's name. Did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, pass their son's name through the monarch ahead of time or did they do things their own way?

According to Express, most royal baby names are publicly announced just a couple of days after they are born. However, in some cases, such as with Princess Beatrice, names may take longer if there is any disagreement. Reportedly, the two-week delay in the announcement of her name was due to the fact that the Queen wasn't sold on "Annabel," which was Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew's first choice.

The names of the first two children of Duchess Kate Middleton and Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, were announced two days after their births. The couple's youngest son Prince Louis' name announcement was made four days after his arrival. This timeframe means that Archie Harrison's name reveal, which happened two days after his May 6 arrival, was not unusual as it "fits a recent royal pattern."

Due to the length of time, the outlet notes that it seems likely that Queen Elizabeth II did, in fact, sign off on the chosen name, which means "genuine, bold, or brave." As for the royal baby's middle name, it quite literally means "the son of Harry."
