Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reportedly almost didn't name their son Archie
Meghan Markleand Prince Harry's son is named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
- But Markle recently said she and Harry couldn't decide between Archie and Harrison, according to PA.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son almost had a different name, according to PA Media.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex traveled to Europe for the Invictus Games last week. Harry founded the competition for injured service personnel, and the 2022 competition is in The Hauge, Netherlands.
According to PA Media, Markle attended a reading for children over the weekend amid the Games.
During the reading, she spoke to Invictus Games competitor Sherry McBain's wife, Mandy, as McBain told PA Media. McBain and Mandy have a son named Harrison.
McBain told PA that after Mandy mentioned her son, Markle shared that Harrison is also Archie's middle name.
According to PA Media, Markle then revealed to Mandy that Harrison was almost her son's first name instead of Archie.
"They were just having a chat because Harry and Meghan couldn't decide between Archie and Harrison for the first name," McBain told the outlet.
Of course, Harry and Markle ultimately chose the name Archie for their son, who was born on May 6, 2019. He was not given a royal title at the time of his birth, nor was his sister, Lilibet Diana.
Lilibet's name pays tribute to both Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana, as Lilibet is the Queen's nickname.
As Insider previously reported, Harry and Markle privately visited the Queen at Windsor Castle on Thursday ahead of their arrival in the Netherlands.
The trip marked Markle's first time in the UK since the duke and duchess' interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
