Prince William Hilariously Trolls Prince Harry About Becoming A Father

What are siblings for, if not making fun of you?

After the much-talked-about delivery of the newest royal baby, Prince William stopped to chat with the press about his new role as Uncle to Harry and Meghan's son.

Naturally, he just had to slide a joke in.

Meghan gave birth to their son on May 6th

After a highly publicized pregnancy, it was no wonder that Meghan and Harry chose to keep the birth of their son to themselves.

However, a number of speculated things didn't happen during the labor.

The baby was not born at home

Unlike many rumors said, it looks like Meghan actually gave birth at a hospital — not at home, with her own team, as many press outlets had speculated.

There's one rumor down!

The new parents waited to debut him

Unlike previous royal births, the new parents chose ahead of time not to debut their new baby immediately after his birth.

Instead, Meghan and Harry introduced Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor two days after his birth.

And yes, the memes rolled in immediately

I mean, you can't name a kid Archie in this day and age without one or two (or...a couple thousand) jokes being made.

Netflix got into the mix with a pretty horrifying image of Riverdale star KJ Apa (aka Archie Andrews) photoshopped onto the royal baby's head.

Listen, the jokes made themselves

After all, a ginger prince naming his son Archie cannot go un-commented on, guys.

Here's hoping the little tyke also enjoys American football, music, boxing, and solving murders.

Yes, that's really what Riverdale is about.

Cast members even joined in

Kiernan Shipka stars as Sabrina in Riverdale's sister show, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

She posted this picture of she and KJ, which is cuteness personified.

I mean, it's no adorable royal baby, but it's still cute.

Anyway, speaking of gingers

Flying solo, Harry addressed the press at Windsor Castle.

He was grinning from ear to ear, and had nothing but incredible things to say about his wife, and for women everywhere.

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension."

He also talked about being a parent off-camera

According to ITV, Harry was already adapting to a parent's schedule.

"I’ve had about two hours’ sleep." He reportedly told them, while chatting about the day he and Meghan had prior to the birth.

William also spoke about the birth

Ah, older siblings.

A day after Archie was born, William and Kate spoke to the press.

William started off with the natural congratulations towards his brother and sister-in-law.

He said he was, "[...] looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quieted down."

He had a quick joke to deliver

This is such a classic dad joke.

"I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting!"

So corny. So proper. So painfully a joke a dad would make to the press.

William wasn't done, though

Since he's been through it three times now, William is something of a seasoned vet when it comes to being the parent of a newborn.

He said he had "Plenty of advice."

It was pretty heartwarming

He continued,

"I wish him all the best, and I hope the next few days they can settle down and enjoy having a newborn in the family and all the joys that come with it that."


Looks like Harry and Meghan have a lot to look forward to

While introducing Archie to the world, they had a lot of thoughts on their new baby's looks.

When asked who he resembled more, Harry said, "We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month, really."

He'll change a lot in the coming years

"But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows."

Uh, clearly he's going to have red hair, freckles, and be torn between dating girls named Betty and Veronica. Duh!

Here's the best tweet about the new baby

What? It's simple, it's funny, and it's on-trend, meme-wise.

Congrats to Harry and Meghan. Sorry about all the memes we're all going to make about your new bundle of joy!

Kinda. We're kinda sorry.
