ed’s letter hello,

FINALLY, the news we were all waiting for: Archie Harrison was born! The name was a bit out of left field. Archie?

As we welcome Baby Archie to the world we’ve put together an 11-page special (starting on page 3) that includes beautiful pictures of Meg, Harry and Baby Archie. Also featured is a look at some fascinating royal baby traditions, the most popular royal names, as well as what it’s like having the queen for a grandmother.On pages 12 and 13 we move onto the royals of Hollywood, and have a look at some of the craziest fashion styles you…

IN our 11th issue, March 11, we published a story on local singer Karlien Husselman. There were contextual errors in that article that made it seem as if she accused her ex-husband of domestic abuse. We duly issued him with an apology in our 15th issue, April 8, in which we made it clear that we in no way intended to defame him. An unfortunate misunderstanding occurred on our part and, Karlien herself did not in fact accuse her ex-husband of any wrongdoing. We sincerely apologise.…

welcome to the world, archie harrison!

IN a move that was widely regarded as straight out of left field, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, named their newborn son Archie Harrison, and revealed him to the world. The couple welcomed their first child in the early hours of Monday, May 6, and introduced the baby boy to the world at a special photocall at Windsor Castle two days later.The couple posted to Instagram a casual black-and-white photo of themselves with the queen and Prince Philip, with Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, also on hand for the private gathering.“This afternoon Their Royal Highnesses introduced Her Majesty the Queen to her eighth great-grandchild at Windsor Castle,” the post continued. “The duke of Edinburgh and the duchess’ mother were also present for this special occasion,” the caption read.…

was meghan ‘secretly rushed to hospital’ before archie’s birth?

THE DAILY MAIL reports that Meghan Markle was ‘secretly whisked to a London hospital on Sunday May 5 by Harry and his Scotland Yard security team’.So secret was the move, they report, that even senior members of the royal family were kept in the dark about it. Meghan and Harry had previously announced that they were intending on keeping the circumstances around the birth of their first child private, breaking with general tradition that had been followed by Prince William and Kate Middleton, who appeared with her newborns on the steps of the Lindo Wing shortly after giving birth. Meghan is thought to have said that she found that concept to be ‘archaic’. Sources are said to have confirmed to the publication that a hospital delivery had taken place,…

what’s in a name?

THE DUKE and duchess of Sussex named their baby son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. It was a surprise choice, given that ‘Archie’ was not among the bookmakers’ favourites of ‘Alexander’, ‘Arthur’ and ‘Albert’ for a boy. “I don't think anyone of us saw either of these names coming,” says Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine. As far as he is aware, according to the BBC, ‘Archie’ does not have any British royal connotations – and ‘Harrison’ is a completely new name for the royal family.‘Archie’ means ‘genuine’, ‘bold’ or ‘brave’ – and is more popular in Britain than the US. It was originally a shortened form of ‘Archibald’, but is now often used as a name on its own, as is the case with the new royal baby. According…

twitter conspiracy theories have already begun

TIMES, they are a changing! In the digital age it’s never long before an online conspiracy begins, so why would we expect any less from something as newsworthy as a royal birth! Twitter seized on a comment by Prince Harry about the new royal baby to spin a conspiracy theory that Meghan actually gave birth much earlier than we were told. When the duke and duchess of Sussex made their first appearance with Archie at a small event with the media in Windsor, a reporter asked the couple who the baby looks like. “You know, everyone says babies change so much over two weeks,” Prince Harry replied. “We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month, really. But his looks are changing every single day so, who…
