New Royal Baby – level 3

14-05-2019 07:00

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, introduced their son Archie to the world last Wednesday. His full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The media has not yet found a connection either between Prince Harry’s or Meghan’s families and the name Archie. They say that the name can mean ‘brave’, ‘bold’ or ‘genuine’, so it may be fitting to be simply the baby’s own name. Harrison probably means ’son of Harry’ and Mountbatten-Windsor is the surname which was created when Archie’s great-grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, married in 1960.

Harry and Meghan have broken some royal traditions – for example, they chose to keep their family affairs private, did not give their son a courtesy title, or posed for photographs a few days after the baby was born.

Difficult words: bold (not afraid, brave), genuine (real, authentic), courtesy title (a title given because of tradition or respect, not a title which gives the child real power).
