Prince Harry and Meghan have said goodbye to their Sussex Royal brand but the name of their new foundation has confused many fans.
After announcing that they were retiring from royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were told by Queen Elizabeth II that they could no longer use the royal trademark in the future. On April 6, the couple announced that the name of their foundation will be called “Arge Disc”, but fans have no idea how to pronounce it. Read on to find out the different ways it is said, plus two other Kings fans have stated incorrectly.
Fans are trying to find out how to pronounce Harry and Meghan’s new brand
The prince and the former suits star has noticed the unique name of their foundation, which will be launched at a later date.
The pair told The Telegraph that they intend to “do something meaningful, to do something important” when their organization is up and running.
“Before SussexRoyal came the idea of ’arche’ – the Greek word meaning ‘source of action’,” the Duke and Duchess said in a statement. “We joined this concept for the charity we hoped to build one day, and it became an inspiration for our son’s name. To do something with meaning, to do something that matters. Archery is a name that combines an ancient word for strength and action, and another that evokes the deep resources we all must draw upon. We look forward to launching Archewell when the time is right. ”
So how is Archewell pronounced? Archie good? Ark-EE-good? AR-kay-good?
Within a few hours, a YouTube video was uploaded that gave a statement to the charity that sounds more like Arch-a-well, which only added to the confusion.
It looks like we just have to wait for Meghan and Harry to fill everyone in the right way to say it.
Other names royal fans have erroneously stated
Archewell is not the only name that royal fans have had little trouble pronouncing. It has been discussed how to say the first name Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest son, Prince Louis. After his birth on April 23, 2018, fans were unsure whether Will and Kate would adopt the US pronunciation Lou-ISS or the French pronunciation Lou-EE.
A video then began circulating online of William and Kate reciting their wedding vows and in it they use the French pronunciation with a silent “s” when they say the Duke’s full name which is William Arthur Philip Louis.
The first name Prince Andrew and Sarah, the Duchess of York’s youngest daughter’s name, have also confused the fans for years until Princess Eugenie set the record himself and told The Sun that it is pronounced “Yoo-junnee,” with emphasis on “Yoo.”
“When we used to meet foreign people who struggled with it, my mom and I helped them by saying, ‘It’s like using your knees,'” said the princess, adding, “But whatever. I am now used to every pronunciation. ”
