    Britain's princes keep following in one New Zealand mother's footsteps when it comes to naming their kids, NBC News reported.

    When Harry and the former Meghan Markle announced they were naming their baby Archie, it was the "icing on the cake" for Jo Stafford, who has a 4-year-old with the same name.

    She also has an 11-year-old named Charlotte and a 7-year-old named George, plus a 9-year-old named Harry. William and the former Kate Middleton have a Charlotte, 4, and a George, 5, of their own, along with 1-year-old Louis.

    "I think it's all a little bit of a giggle," Stafford said in an interview from her home in Mosgiel, New Zealand. "It just worked out that way."
