The Duchess of Sussex took motivation for her newborn child's name from
a dearest pet, it is asserted .
A former close friend of Meghan revealed to The Sun the moniker gave off an impression of being a reference to her feline named Archie, who she imparted to her mom Doria Ragland, 62.
'Doria rescued Archie and he became an important part of the household. Meghan loved playing with him and she was always talking about him to her friends,' they told the publication.
'It's no surprise she named her new baby Archie. She loved that cat.'
Meghan, 37, is believed to have told friends the cat ended becoming fat after constantly feeding it grapes.
The cat is believed to have died while the former actress was in college at Northwestern University in Chicago.
Meghan and Harry welcomed Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on Monday and introduced him to the world at a photocall in Windsor Castle, on Wednesday.
