Plenty of Margarets frequent royal circles right?! We're sure Archie won't have any problems finding a parnter in years to come. Interestingly, his name wasn't as popular back when his four-times great grandmother Queen Victoria was on the throne.

If he ever gets tired of life in Windsor, Archie can always relocate in God's Own County where many of his namesakes reside.
