- About a month after their son, Archie Harrison, was born, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made some changes to his birth certificate.
- According to a report from The Sun, both Harry and Meghan changed how their names appear on the official document.
- Meghan changed her name on the document from “Rachel Meghan” to “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex” and Harry added “Prince” to his title, which reads “His Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex.”
Update 1/31: A spokesperson for Meghan Markle formally spoke out against reports that the name changes on Archie’s birth certificate was requested by the Sussexes and the idea that it was, in any way, a “snub” of other members of the royal family.
“The change of name on public documents in 2019 was dictated by The Palace, as confirmed by documents from senior Palace officials,” a spokesperson for Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex explained in a statement to Harper’s Bazaar. “This was not requested by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex nor by The Duke of Sussex. To see this U.K. tabloid and their carnival of so-called ‘experts’ chose to deceptively whip this into a calculated family ‘snub’ and suggest that she would oddly want to be nameless on her child’s birth certificate, or any other legal document, would be laughable were it not offensive. There’s a lot going on in the world; let’s focus on that rather than creating clickbait.”
