The name for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, has created some debate online.

Some thought it was great and others weren't too sure, but there is always one man that we can rely on for his wisdom in these matters; one Piers Morgan.

The Good Morning Britain presenter claimed that the name was a 'striking blow for diversity and feminism' due to Archie being a 'white-middle class name'.

He then added that he believed Harrison had only been chosen because it stood for 'Harry's son.'

It's hard to tell when Morgan is being serious or not on Twitter but the added caveat of 'I'm serious' would suggest that he is not fooling around.

He then claimed in a later tweet that although he was a fan of the name Archie, he thought Harrison was just a bit too silly.

Morgan also responded to a critic who tried to take a jab at his name.

Either way, people weren't happy with his attempts to criticise the name of a newborn baby.

Morgan's tweet appears to have happened around the same time that broadcaster, Danny Baker posted a 'racist' joke tweet about the royal baby, which wound up costing him his job at the BBC.

Meanwhile, young Archie is reportedly behaving a lot better than Mr Morgan and Mr Baker. His mother, Meghan told the press on Wednesday:

He has the sweetest temperament, he's really calm. He’s just been the dream, so it’s been a special couple of days.
