When Josephine (Joe) and Jack Staffords from Mosgiel town in the south of New Zealand found out that Prince Harry and Megan Markle decided to call their first child Archie, they were shocked by this news. The fact is that from now on all four Stafford children bear the names of the heirs to the British throne. And the first such names were chosen not by the princes, but by Joe and Jack.

The eldest child Staffords, the only daughter, is named Charlotte, and she is 11 years old. Princess Charlotte, daughter of Prince William and Kate Middleton, is only 4 years old.
Next comes the 9-year-old Harry Stafford. At this point, the Staffords, with a laugh, admit that they gave a miss. They called their eldest son as Prince Harry, and it would be necessary to call Louis, as the one-year-old younger son of William and Kate, then the names would be complete.
Harry is followed by 7-year-old George Stafford (and the eldest son of Prince William George is five years old) and 4-year-old Archie Stafford.
According to Joe, the news of the appearance in the royal family of a child named Archie was for them with her husband simply “cherry on the cake.”
"We could not believe that this is so!", — shared Joe in an interview with NBC News. She said that she first drew attention to the coincidence of names after the birth of Princess Charlotte in May 2015. Since then, she and her husband, as well as their friends and relatives, have been joking all the time about the "royal" Stafford family.
