Whether they like it or not, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry never fail to draw public attention from us Brits – they are a constant source of conversation, especially since they left the Royal Family in the UK to move to the states last year.

But Archie isn’t the only person the royal couple referenced as they made their announcement to the world.
