"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind": What's in a Royal Baby name, and the women men like Anthony Weiner leave in their wake

Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.

  • "What's in a name?": Victoria Arbiter on Prince George and the Queen's Role

While Prince William cruised into the English sunset with his wife and new child on Tuesday, "Piers Morgan Live" Guest Host Week is still picking up speed.

Donny Deutsch – no stranger to the program – took the throne for Piers Morgan last night. However, His Royal Highness Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge stole the show, as he had quickly, and impressively, upgraded from his initial name of simply "Royal Baby."

Taking a respectable fifth turn as Guest Host, Deutch welcomed Victoria Arbiter, asking CNN’s royal expert to explain the meaning behind the new baby’s name.

Breaking it down word by word, and generation by generation, Arbiter noted that while George was the name of six previous kings, it's also the name of the patron saint of England, and the middle name of William's father, Charles. So, “George” could have been chosen for a variety of reasons.

Meanwhile, the middle name “Alexander” is of interest as well, as it's similar to the Queens middle name of Alexandra, so there could be a tribute to her too.

Arbiter also commented on the British balance of power, explaining that while William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge are the parents, the Queen will still be influential in Prince George’s upbringing:

“We're really seeing William put a stamp on how he intends to move forward. These are traditional names, they're family names, but they're not immediately all associated with familiar royals and so I think that way he's giving his child his own identity," she told Deutsch. "The Queen went over to Kensington Palace this morning, primarily to meet her first great grandson, but I think William, he runs everything by her when it comes to the monarchy and how he does things and matters of state."

Continuing to speak of the Queen, Arbiter offered her own assessment:

"She's not a tyrant. She likes the family to make their own decisions. She'll say if she thinks you could have handled something better, but she would have been touched if they run it by her first.”

Then, Deutsch, skepticism unwavering, asked Arbiter what this new age of royals means in terms of parenting:

“Am I to believe right now that there is no nanny there? That Kate is getting up in the middle of the night? Is that really possible?,” he wondered aloud.

According to Arbiter, while Kate is not without help, she isn't likely to have a collection of servants doing all the dirty work:

“Kate is from a normal family. Her mother was waiting for her when she came home from school. They came to at least give it a go themselves," she told the "Piers Morgan Live" guest host. "But having said that they have gone home to Kate's parents' house this weekend. So Grandma Middleton, I'm sure, is helping out. “

  • Anthony Weiner: The women left in the wake of cheating men

On Wednesday, a day after Huma Abedin spoke publicly in support of her husband Anthony Weiner, Donny Deutsch and his star panel discussed popular opinion on the latest scandal details.

Using Monica Lewinsky as an example, Deutsch expressed how these types of scandals negatively affect the women involved:

“The unfortunate issue for these women that come forward, they get 15 minutes. And then the parade leaves," noted the man filling in for Piers Morgan. "And their lives are ruined ironically and not the men's.”

Joining the program for a live interview, Gloria Allred offered her perspective:

“I agree with that. I also represent one of the women who came forward in the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal. And that is being - we urged him to resign. He did resign. And then of course, he thought he was getting help," noted the attorney, and women's rights advocate. "Now, we see that apparently, that help was not effective. But she didn't come looking for her 15 minutes of fame, I want to point out. Her name was revealed, not because she revealed it. Others in the press found out. And then essentially, they stamped to her. And she had no privacy."

Roughly two years since the first "sexting scandal" halted Weiner's political career, Allred is again aligning herself with the female involved, the woman known to this point simply as “Sydney Leathers”:

“He sent sexting messages to her. So let's not blame the women," she said. "He's the one who should absolutely have to take responsibility for what he did.”

Watch the clip as Ben Smith of BuzzFeed offered his skeptical response to Allred's thinking, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
