    You'e never heard of Sabrina the Teen aged witch cartoon, or the song Sugar, Sugar ? Or the Groovy Ghoulies? Betty & Veronica? Reggie? You're missing out! I'm dating myself as a child born around that time, and not sure how well known the Archies were in the UK, but they were very popular here in the US and have been reinvented over the years.

    Oh, my! They were such a big part of my Saturday morning cartoon watching when I was really small.

    I love Sugar, Sugar. I always laugh when the dog goes to the kissing booth, YT. hahaha

    You can also just watch Riverdale on Netflix, to get a modern day version, non animated version.

    Baker fired over royal baby chimp tweet

    Danny Baker, formerly of the BBC, posted a picture of the Sussex couple with a chimpanzee wearing a suit.

    He has been dismissed. And says, "I didn't think it was racist". Okay. Whatever.

    Anyone that has served in the Military, especially a war zone, deserves respect.

    For those interested Netflix has a 6 episode series called The Royal House of Windsor and how it came to be.

    Starts off during WW1 and the anti German sentiment growing in the UK and the decision of George V to change the House name from the House of Saxe, Gotha and Coburg to the House of Windsor.
    Later on in the series we learn how Prince Philip wanted his children have his surname, Mountbatten, but this did not sit well with some royals and was initially refused but the debate was revisited when QEII became pregnant for the 3rd time and just days before Prince Andrew was born a compromise was reached. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philips descendants, when needed, would use Mountbatten-Windsor as the family surname.

    IMO Harry really grew up during his stint in Afghanistan and his work in Africa. Between the two I believe this was when he really found himself. He has addressed the mental health issues which contributed to his wild days. I believe given his life experience his maturity is well beyond his years. He should be very proud of himself, for the work he has done and who he is today. These two come from very different backgrounds but I admire their passion for their work and each other. I really think they compliment one another.

    I loved the Archie comic books when I was young.
    I remember the Archie cartoons and spin offs like Josie and the Pussycats

    I expect that even the 'unconventional' Sussexes would have attributed the name to HRH Queen Elizabeth's father.

    CW network (in America) has a show called Riverdale. It has multiple seasons and am watching on demand. It a dramatized version of the Archie Comics. It is pretty dark. I really like it. Not sure if it can be watched overseas but worth a look. Also, sadly Luke Perry who recently passed was great in the role of Archie's father.

    Seeing now that Riverdale has already been mentioned. Sorry, reading while I am working and I guess I am skimming too quickly.

    Growing up, all my orange tabby cats were called Albert..can't explain why..each time we got a new orange male cat I would look at it and announce he's an Albert LOL
    This had nothing to do with the royal family either, just a name that was stuck in my head as a child.
