A little Labradoodle has had his thunder stolen after the newborn royal baby took his name today.
Archie Harrison, a black Labrador-mini Poodle cross, claimed the name first and is now looking for his 15 minutes of fame.
But the royal coincidences don’t stop there with his London-based family.
Owner Tom Harrison told Metro.co.uk his 15-month-old daughter is called Camilla. Yes, really.
Although we can probably agree the Duchess of Cornwall almost definitely got dibs on that one.
Now Tom is calling on the public to get his adorable Archie, aged three, some much-deserved screen time.
Tom wrote on Twitter: ‘Our dog is literally called Archie Harrison. That’s what they call out at the vet.
‘Surely this is enough to fill a few minutes of royal baby tv coverage’.
Tom told Metro.co.uk he found it ‘really weird’ when he realised the new royal baby shared a name with his dog, who spends his time frolicking in the garden.
Goldfish have a reputation as short-lived creatures, but given proper care, they can live as long as 30 years in captivity. The oldest captive goldfish ever recorded was won at a fair in 1956 and died in 1999 at age 43.
He said: ‘It’s weird isn’t it? I suddenly got loads of messages from people saying how funny it was.
‘I guess it’s probably quite a common name, there are tonnes of people with the surname Harrison.’Woman, 26, suffering chronic migraine for 14 years says doctors didn't believe her
Speaking of the choice to name their little girl Camilla, Tom said he and partner Laura wanted a name that wasn’t typical.
‘We liked the name Camilla but we didn’t want one that everyone had, or one that you heard in the playground – and there aren’t going to be anymore royal babies with her name,’ added the dad.
Tom said their regal choices have been merely coincidental and the pair don’t have any plans to continue naming their pets and children with those next in line for the British throne.
Along with Camilla and Archie, Tom and Laura have two cats – but unfortunately their names are not quite Buckingham Palace-worthy.
But Archie loves his feline friends Eric and Pickles all the same, as Tom says they love chasing each other around the house.
With a baby and two cats in the house, Tom said Archie is ‘very tolerant and gentle’ but he does like to steal the limelight every once in a while and have his picture taken.
You should never physically punish your pet. It brings the animal pain and fear, and it gains you nothing. It’s a lose-lose situation. Please don’t do it.
Tom made his grand announcement on Twitter shortly after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex , Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, with the world today.
The highly-anticipated news was shared on their official Instagram account, along with an adorable photo of the newborn with his grandparents the Queen, Prince Philip and Meghan’s mum Doria.
Archie was born on May 6 at 5.26am, weighing 7lb 30z – the baby of Sussex that is, not the dog.
Now the Labradoodle will have to adjust to his new life, accepting he’s not the only cute Archie Harrison in town.
But Tom doesn’t think Archie’s new-found fame will change him much.
He added: ‘He already thinks quite highly of himself, he loves his pictures being shared.’
Well there you go Archie, you made the royal baby coverage after all.
