Prince Archie’s birth announcement comes with a super awkward typo about his lineage. The announcement was largely anticipated by social media users.
After Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the birth and details of their baby boy, the Queen’s website launched a page dedicated to Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Several social media users noticed immediately that there was a typo with Archie’s lineage. The website originally read, “Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 05:26 on Monday 6th May. He is the first child of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and is seventh in line to the throne.”
The page was immediately connected and changed to Duke and Duchess of Sussex, but the gaff caused a lot of reaction online. One fan wrote, “Hahahhahahahahaha very very bad start. Sorry to laugh but this is hilarious.” Another said, “A major oops… You wouldn’t expect them to get that wrong. LOL.” Another one joked, “They’re always trying to make it look like the Cambridge’s are working more than they are…Typical.”
It is doubtful that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex cared much about the mistake however, judging by their excitement during the announcement of their child to the world. Meghan told the press at St. George’s Hall at Windsor Castle, “It’s magic. It’s pretty amazing. I mean I have the two best guys in the world, so I’m really happy. He has the sweetest temperament. He’s really calm…and he’s just been a dream, so it’s been a special couple days.” Prince Harry added, “We’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy and be able to spend some precious times with him as he slowly, slowly starts to grow up.”
Prince Archie was officially born early morning on May 6th.
