Meghan Markle has revealed her sweet nickname for her four-month-old son, Archie Harrison. On Wednesday, the little royal attended his first-ever official engagement as Prince Harry, Meghan and Archie met with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe. A video from the day shows Meghan with Archie in her arms, saying, "Say hello! Hello, hi!" before realising he is dribbling and exclaiming, "Oh, Bubba!" Meghan, 38, again appeared to use the nickname in a video shared on the royal couple's Instagram Stories as the trio walked down a corridor to meet with the famed human rights activist.

Thandeka remarked that Archie appeared to understand what Meghan was asking, to which Prince Harry said, "I think he knows exactly what is going on." "You like me best, yes?" Thandeka asked Archie. "Oh, you like the ladies better, yeah?" "He likes to flirt!" Meghan agreed.
