AT JUST seven weeks old, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor may be the youngest ever comic book star.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's son has been given the cartoon treatment by Archie Comics, who were clearly delighted by the royal baby's name.
The comic cover reads 'meet Prince Archie' and features a flame-haired royal decked out in a crown, gold playsuit, 'A' medallion and dalmatian spotted red robe.
It hits shelves on September 4 – four months after Archie's May 7 birthday.
Archie Comics is the inspiration for cult Netflix series Riverdale, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Josie and the Pussycats – while Liverpool-based band The Beatles were previously given the Riverdale treatment.
Publisher Jon Goldwater told Deadline: “When we learned that the royal baby was named Archie, we knew we had to engage with this bit of history in an organic and fun way.
“And what’s better than showing how Archie himself reacts to the news?
“This story is a fun, light romp that features all the classic elements of Riverdale – with a royal twist!”
When Meghan and Harry announced their baby's name, Riverdale runner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to Twitter to celebrate.
He wrote: "Best. Crossover. Ever. #Riverdale goes ROYAL. Congrats to the Meghan and Harry #archie!"
The show's official account also tweeted a GIF of Archie putting his dukes up in a boxing ring, with the caption: "Proud to be Archie".
Archie was created in 1941 by writer Vic Bloom, artist Bob Montana and publisher John L. Goldwater, the current CEO's dad.
