The Duke and Duchess of Sussex give baby Archie a Ghanaian name

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, has given their son, Archie a Ghanaian name which is – KOJO.

According to the naming customs of Ghana, Archie was given the name Kojo, because he was born on a Monday. His known full name is Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. BET International UK reportedly broke the news of the new name in a post.

Ghanaians are super excited at Archie’s new name.

The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex are currently on a tour in Africa. The Sussex Royals touched down at Cape Town in South Africa to commence their visit on the 23rd of September, 2019. Word has it that the Queen of England is quite delighted at the success of the African tour so far.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams tells Express, “The way Meghan and Harry have handled their tour in South Africa so far has been uniquely informal, from hugging and dancing to Meghan not wearing her engagement ring. This is unusual for a royal tour but the Sussexes have already shown they do things their way.”

He adds, “Their main appeal is clearly to the young and it is brilliantly unorthodox…I am sure that the Queen, who cares so deeply about her beloved Commonwealth, will be delighted at their successes.” And as the head of the royal family, I’m sure that Queen Elizabeth’s approval means a lot to Harry and Meg, so this is very good news for them!….’

One of the favourite highlights of the tour for most people is the royal baby African debut. Archie Kojo was such a pleasure to watch especially at the visit to Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter.

The experience in South Africa was quite interesting and the people of the country showed out for the royals.

Apart from South Africa, Prince Harry made solo appearances in Malawi and Angola, while Meghan Markle stayed behind in South Africa to look after baby Archie. Even while in South Africa, the Duchess of Sussex met with female leaders and academics as Patron of the Association of Commonwealth Universities.


The royal couple has indeed warmed the hearts of many with their sweet interactions with the people of Africa.
Although, this is not the first time the Sussex Royals would be visiting Africa. They came earlier in August, 2017 to Botswana where Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle.

It is indeed amazing to see them back in Africa with their 6 month old baby, ARCHIE KOJO.

The African tour is set to end this Wednesday, 2nd of October, 2019.
