Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child Archie Harrison, who is seventh-in-line to the throne, on Monday, May 6 and when the news hit social media, John Pryde, dad and owner of G:Room hairdresser, couldn’t quite believe it.

“I was getting texts and Facebook messages saying have you seen this? It’s just a bit of fun, but clearly the royals have copied us,” he joked.

When John and wife Lynne discovered they were expecting for the second time, their son Archie, now 12, helped choose the name Harrison who is now four.
