Stephen: Twitter reacts to Royal Baby Archie

Twitter had plenty to say on Thursday after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the name of their new baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. As TooFab reports, fans of the Archie Comics-based series Riverdale were particularly delighted by the name choice. Netflix quickly tweeted out, “Archiekins!” That is, of course, Veronica Lodge’s nickname for K.J. Apa’s Archie on the show. On Instagram, Netflix photo-shopped Apa’s face over the royal baby’s and wrote, “and y’all thought you were the biggest Riverdale stans. Welcome baby Archie, earl of Riverdale.” Meanwhile, Riverdale creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted, “Best. Crossover. Ever. #Riverdale goes ROYAL. Congrats to Meghan and Harry #archie!” Maybe Meghan can be convinced to return to acting for a Riverdale appearance.
