What could have happened! Meghan Markle Prince HarryArchie, their 2-year-old son was almost given a different name.

The SuitsAlumna, 40, speaks to Invictus Games competitor named Sherry McBainShe is also her wife. Mandy, on Monday, April 18, about her toddler’s moniker.

“She was like ‘Harrison, that’s Archie’s middle name,’ and Mandy was like ‘Yeah, I know,’” McBain said of the Los Angeles native. “They were just having a chat because Harry and Meghan couldn’t decide between Archie and Harrison for the first name.”

The former actress gave birth to her and the 37-year-old England native’s baby boy in May 2019, revealing his full name — Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor — two days later. The couple welcomed Lilibet, now 10 month old, in June 2021.

The former military pilot Meghan and Meghan have been in England for the past week. They have visited Queen Elizabeth IISupported Invictus Games athletes on their travels.

In February, Harry revealed that he “does not feel safe” bringing his two children to his native country. In January 2020, the couple decided to resign from their royal duties and made their exit permanent in February 2012. Privately, California residents pay for the United States’ police protection.

The duke applied for a judicial review of his family’ security arrangements in the U.K. in September 2021. When a Home Office decision ruled he couldn’t personally fund protection while visiting in January, he issued a statement.

“Prince Harry inherited a security risk at birth, for life. He remains sixth in line to the throne, served two tours of combat duty in Afghanistan, and in recent years his family has been subjected to well-documented neo-Nazi and extremist threats,” the statement read. “While his role within the Institution has changed, his profile as a member of the royal family has not. Neither has the threat to his family. … In absence of such protection, Prince Harry and his family are unable to return home.”

Royal expert estimates the cost of their security. Richard AitchOnly told Us Weekly that same month that a total is “difficult” to estimate.

“The cost for a personal protection officer from the [Metropolitan Police] has been estimated to be around £100,000 a year,” the Mobius International Security director of operations explained at the time. “What may appear as a wish on paper is far more in reality, and the costs can certainly be quite huge.”
